well ive decided to follow my fathers footsteps and im now on the long road to becoming an orthopedist. since im still in college...this could change. anyway...i now have a job working as a surgical assistant at our hospital. ive always been horribly afraid to see blood and different kinds of injuries (i even fainted after getting shots in the past! ) ive been training the past few days and have yet to witness some serious operations. i was just wondering if anyone else has overcome such a fear and if so, how? i know after being around different surgeries ill eventually overcome it...just curious about you all.
