The holidays can be stressful, not matter what. But if you or a loved one is facing a serious illness, this time of year can be even more difficult. Our team has been thinking a lot about an episode from our first season with Dr. Vicki Jackson, a palliative care specialist at Mass General. Her work focuses on helping her patients live well, no matter their diagnosis or circumstances, and this advice can be especially helpful in the midst of holiday stress.  As we head into Thanksgiving, we are re-sharing this episode. Happy Thanksgiving from the Charged team at Mass General in Boston!
