No one is safe...

Some people have unfortunate things happen to them. Unfortunately, most of us believe these things will only happen to others, and many of us spend the majority of our lives sheltered by these beliefs.

One of the good things about being in the medical field is that we come face to face with the fact that bad things happen, and bad things happen to everyone. Death, disease, you name it. Not all dead people are old people. Disease does not discriminate. And even though we're confronted with this reality more than your average person, we still try to believe that we won't be so unlucky... but you really never know.

When you see a patient in the late twenties present with a stroke, or watch a colleague in the late thirties have a heart attack in front of you, you understand that shit happens and you are definitely, definitely not exempt...
