I'm not really all that mysterious

med school fear of blood desensitize

People search for the most interesting things and end up finding my blog somewhere down there deep in the recesses of Google’s soul. (I have a disturbing feeling that we are accidentally building an AI here, but enough tin-foil-hat conspiracy theories.)

Some one was looking for “med school fear of blood desensitize” and wound up at this old entry.

The poor bastard. Don’t worry, I still get vasovagal when I see my own blood. I remember the first C-section I scrubbed in on, I got a little woozy. It’s been a while since I’ve seen liters of blood just gush out like that. I don’t think I ever saw a trauma that bloody. I don’t think I’ve seen a ruptured liver that bloody.

I hate blood. And yet, I insist on doing a hematology rotation. How ironic.
