Clinic worker: abortion work is incredibly isolating

In a post from 2009, a clinic worker describes how she feels about her job:

“I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel our work can be incredibly isolating….for me and my co-workers, it can sometimes feel like we’re alone. No one wants to hear about where you work or what you do. Often family and friends don’t even want to know about your day. Maybe it’s a sign I’ve been doing abortion work a long time because I just simply don’t talk about my day anymore. And I hardly notice that I don’t. Who’s going to understand, anyway?”
