Im not sure what attraction I feel towards working in a hospital When I was younger I hated even thinking about them They smelled funny everyone looked nervous and a lot of places were off limits But I think the thing that scared me the most was the thought of needles Yet after working on the night shift for about a year Ive found hospitals to be more than just a place where people are sick They are a place to observe life But Im still scared of needlesOne of my most memorable patients was an elderly man who had Lou Gehrigs Disease When I met him he was on a ventilator a feeding machine and an IV All this to keep him alive He was slowly losing his ability to control his muscles He couldnt talk so I learned to lip-read what he wanted which wasnt an easy task for either of us But I didnt stop trying and he didnt give up on me After awhile we were able to carry on a fairly good conversation Hed mostly listen or ask questions while I talked about cars the army and the weather Being able to communicate with someone was something I know he dearly missed I cried when I found out he had died I knew it would happen one day I just didnt want to lose my friend After thinking about it for so long I believed I was strong enough to take the emotion I was wrong I also took care of an 18-year-old that had been in a car accident He was a passenger in the car and his drunken friend was trying to show off He had been put in the neurology unit because they suspected that he might have damaged his spinal cord or brain When I came in to see him he was scared to death He was a normal teenager out having fun
