Nurses are weird right? Often times at dinner with my family I’ll get going on (what I think is) a great story . . . only to have my family start screaming . . “Stop! We’re eating”.
Call it desensitization.
Call it morbid curiosity.
Call it . . . just being a nurse.
But we seem to thrive and enjoy seeing or hearing morbid pictures/stories. As an ICU nurse I love seeing the pictures . . . my mind automatically switches into trauma mode. I start thinking about how I would treat the patient, what meds, bandages, etc is this patient going to need to improve.
I just thrive in the trauma setting, the business, the life-or-death situations. Call me crazy . . . I don’t think you will though . . . because you’re a nurse too . . . and we are all a bit crazy!
Are you like me? If so here are a few pictures you can use to gross your family out.
