Dana and all,

Welcome and congrats on finding your way through the technical challenges.  You too bring a lot of life experience to this discussion and training.  Many folks have the same kind of uncomfortable feelings in nursing homes, hospitals, etc. Working in a seminary, being married to a minister, having family in long term care and serving in your church are all areas that we will address going forward.  You demonstrate times when you received care as well as times you have offered it.  These are some of our greatest learning experiences.  You and others might want to keep a journal through this process, where you record your private reactions, feelings, etc as you read and reflect.  I suspect the underlying reasons for your uncomfortableness will come to the surface.  Awareness is the first step in feeling more comfortable.
