Summary
Grief. Anger. Joy. Fear. Distraction. Disgust. Hope. All emotions we expect to encounter over our lifetime. But what if this was every day? And what if your ability to manage them was the difference between life and death? For a doctor in Intensive Care this is part of the job. Fear in the eyes of a terminally ill patient who pleads with you to not let them die. Grief when an elderly person dies alone. Disgust at having to care for a convicted rapist. But there's also the hope found in the resilience of a family and the joy that comes with a meaningful connection with a patient, however fleeting it may be. These real stories reveal what a doctor sees of humanity as it comes through the revolving door of the hospital
