Grave

Sometimes, death seems too easy to people. Isn’t it? Everybody has their fair share of misery and pain. They find different ways to either deal with their agony or drown in them.

I was monitoring a patient of organophoshporus poisoning today. Fortunately or unfortunately, he got saved after the antidote, atleast for a while.The poison has spread all over, rendering him in a state of delirium. Recovery is a dream at this point.

He says that he doesn’t want to die. Why did he take the damn poison in the first place? Is a squabble with wife worth a life? Where was this need to live at that time? He may beg but their is nothing left to be saved.

Dying isn’t the worst part. Living with irreversible brain damage is.

Suicide isn’t easy. It comes with a price. If you die, good for you or else, you live long enough with the disability and regrets.

  1. A very poignant story, Nawazish. It is good that you put this information out there to warn people of the possible consequences of suicide attempts. I am sure dealing with such cases is not the most pleasant part of your day.

    I think brain damage is the worst injury of all. My son has suffered repeated concussions and other injuries in multiple auto accidents. It makes me very sad to see him suffer.

      Thank you so much Cheryl! Brain damage has devastating after effects. Hope your son is doing fine now!

  2. Takes courage to commit suicide too. They say cowards do it but imagine what kind of pain the person was in that pushed him to do it. It’s not easy. You can’t convince yourself to die just like that, our brains are rigged to survive. Suicide isn’t an option, it’s an act of desperation. It’s hopelessness.

      Agreed it takes courage to suicide. You just don’t decide to kill yourself in a day. But there have been cases like father is not giving a new phone suicide…brother scolded slash your veins. It takes lots of time to be saved. At the end it your life, you should decide what to do with it.

      On a lighter note, it disturbs night duty people sleep🥺

      1. This is true. It’s your life, you decide when it has to end. There’s nothing unethical or immoral in it.

    This is so sobering and true Nawaz. Sadly, there is a price for everything in life and nothing is worth taking it. You never know the day in which it all changes.

    It’s pathetic to see people finding suicide a solution. Sadly, we are conditioned in that way… 🥲

  5. In that state of frustrated turmoil, people don’t realise that suicide is not a solution to their problems. While it does take a lot of courage to resort to this extreme step, living with it is still worse.
    It must be so challenging for you doctors to deal with so many different cases in your daily professional life. Respect and blessings to you Doc 🙏❤️

    Everybody comes with a solution to the problems like pain , agony and sorrow. Does solutions really work . To some extent it works but destiny has something else in its kitty. You have deeper impact on others . Nicely written.

        I am confused…I liked ortho but working in ortho make me realise that it requires lots of physical work. Now I really don’t know. Medicine seems to vast. Paeds is dangerous😅

        Ortho does require physical strength, tractions n all, but once you make up your mind, nothing else matters 😊😊 but in the end, it’s all depend on you, what you want, I truly can understand, it is a difficult decision to make, whole life depends 😅😅

        Take your time but please stress mat lena ☺☺ you will surely realize it, once you complete your internship working in different depts, our perspectives do change after that
