What I am most afraid of?

As a psychiatrist, I am most afraid of hearing that my patient did some harm to themselves. It is very hard to prevent suicide but the risk factors are well documented and researched. I go to sleep every night wondering if I missed any signs or risk factors. I wake up wondering if my patients also woke up and if they plan to end the day the same way I end my day- with dreams of tomorrow.
