The Weekend That Changed Everything

Updated: Mar 21

by Dr. Jen Caudle


The pandemic left me lonelier than I realized. For the most part, I did well. I had bad days (sometimes really bad days) but overall I felt like I handled the pandemic okay. What I didn't realize was how lonely I had become and I didn't realize it until this weekend.


I attended my first in-person conference (as a participant, not a speaker) since 2019- It was the American College of Family Physicians conference in Dallas, Tx (shout out to my Texas folks!) and it was awesome!


I met new friends and reconnected with old friends.



I ate, drank (only a little since I still get these crazy migraines with alcohol), danced my toosh off, and had a ball.





The hotel had an amazing pool which I often had all to myself!


I learned a lot as well.


I had such a blast that I went LIVE on Facebook after my 1st night at the conference to talk about it.



Family docs are friendly, kind, warm, quirky (yes, that includes me), down-to-earth, all about helping patients, and always up for free food! They're "my people" and my family; time with them has made me feel a bit more like myself and I'm grateful for that.


This conference was more than I expected and everything I needed.


Love y'all!
