Homeless Shelter

For my last 2 weeks of clinical we were at the homeless shelter. I don't think I will ever be able to express all the emotions I had or still have. I am not naive enough to say I didn't know there were homeless people, but that is how I always saw them, homeless people. These were just people. There were Mom's with children, vets in wheelchairs, so much mental illness it broke my heart, little old ladies, babies. It is so easy to stereotype someone into a box that makes it ok for us to neglect them.
On a posiitve note I absolutely love the group I worked with. I would love to work with any one of them in the hospital.
