Already mentally fucked up enough, so I'm better off staying away from that mess.

Fully grown men crying is an odd interest of mine.
Seeing people broken in this emotionless society is...real.
And even though it's depressing, it feels me with the warmth of sharing another human being's emotion.

Nothing fully prepares you for when those moments happen in front of you. I have been in the medical field for 8 years and it never gets easier. I love helping people and taking care of others more then anything but when you lose them the amount of pain you feel is horrible. I know people who aren't bothered at all by death and I have no clue how they could be in the medical field but then again I suppose some people can deal with death a lot better then myself. If you care for others and enjoy it then there is no better rewarding field to work in but its a double edged sword in with all the joy you get out of it there is a lot of pain to deal with as well.

My mother works in the medical field for 12+ years. At first she wasn't handling deaths easily. But having dealt with so many, she has to be prepared and not get emotional because she has a job to do. Of course when she gets back home, that's a different story. She lets it all out here. There are some very good doctors out there who love doing what they do. Then there are the ones who really aren't good at all. I have a degree in biology. I have always wanted to go to med school for Surgery. But after my four years in college I changed my mind. Of course I still want to go to med school for microbiology. But I don't think I'm capable of working without being emotional. Death is something I can not handle because I have not dealt with it before.
But I applaud this doctor because it's very rare to see a professional doing his job, something he/she loves doing.

Man I couldn't be in control of someones life. That would be so stressful to know that you have a persons life on the line.

My mom was studying to be a nurse, but sadly a war got in the way of her degree. She works at a nursing home now, and she gets close to some of the elders there and when one of them dies, she gets pretty sad. My family (her parents) is kind of crazy, so meeting nice people and having them die on you when you least expect it really hits you. But people in the medical field have to go through that twice as much usually.. . I feel for this doctor. Especially since it was a young patient... actually my age.

You know, I've lost a friend to a freak brain aneurysm at age 10, and two friends to suicide... one in high school and one just last month actually. But no one in my family yet. But the fact this doctor tried everything he could have and couldn't save the patient, that's deep. He has to go back in there and continue his job... just shows we're all human. Doctors can't save everyone, but they try their hardest. They're the ones that deserve millions of dollars. And hugs <3

I'm going to be a psychologist, so I hope I don't lose a patient while trying to help them with their troubles... I care about people too much, just as long as they're nice.
