hello , i know i’m a bit late in the convorsation (actually , came here to write about autism when i came across your conversation. 😆) but i really enjoyed to read it and thank you @Erina for sharing your thoughts. Thank you @Gabz for sharing your experiences as a doctor , this is priceless!
So here are some of my thoughts about this topic :
Well for me it’s more like i just love the rush. it’s a small thing i learned about myself during my time serving. sometimes i got cought in many situations where i had so little control and i just had to deliver, no matter what it takes (lets say i got more than once a frostbites and it was the least of my worries at the time ). i really related to the part in the video where he talks about analyzing the situation and ask yourself : where did i function best? how can i do it next time better? if i could have done something else different what would it be?
And if your’e extreme like me , I would’ve look to put myself in stressful situations just for practice. This is really weird that i’m saying it out loud but i’m using like constactive imagination to put myself in this terms sometimes. For me when i imagine the worst case scenario before it actually happens it helps me to regain some of the control back.
But even then, sometimes there is nothing you can do to get to the best outcome .And this is where you choose how to look at the situation. For example : If the paitent is dead because all of the sudden he got three types of cancer (yes , i’m getting some Grey’s anatomys vibes of drama 😂) , you can look at it as it is your faliure or you can say that if you were’nt there to help this person would have died for sure. So you actually did more good for him\her than bad. Its your choice how to take the bad parts of your life , at the end of the day those moments when you are at your lowest point this are just a teaching moments , this what makes us stronger.
