Hereby, the author intends to retrace the difficulties she went through with in an institutional context, where she fulfills the role of post-graduate intern. The issues derive from the fact that her first patient is as old as her, with specular education. The author tries to describe the mutation of her own internal setting. Firstly it was rigidly and defensively focused on the comforting diversities with her patient, eventually it became sufficiently animated and lively.
