Sapana Adhikari is an Emergency Medicine physician, practicing in Charlotte, NC. Dr. Adhikari spends her days in a whirlwind of emotionally draining and unpredictable activity. To deal with the stress, she must approach each shift in a calm and methodical way. “My Life” depicts a scene in a peaceful pottery studio. Instead of 'repairing' vases, the physician 'repairs' medical emergencies: a pneumothorax, a splenic rupture, a volvulus, and a nosebleed. Although these are life-threatening problems, she stays focused and fixes each problem simultaneously. The shelves are lined with scores of other vases, each with their own medical emergency, all waiting their turn to be 'repaired.' www.sapanaadhikari.com
