Shaky/Uneasy around blood?
What are your thoughts about becoming a doctor if you might be shaky around blood? Based on your experience in medical school, is this something that you can overcome with experience? Can you just lose your uneasiness with blood? Do the third year clincal rotations just knock out all of that uneasiness and turn you into hard robots that can stand seeing any amount of blood? Or is this something you can't learn and people either have it or don't?
I'm not terrified with blood and can stomach it. I absolutely love certain bloody movies (<3 SAW Franchise) but I sometimes shake when I see certain bloody scenes in movies (hard to explain). When my friend had a huge bloody gnash in his leg, I felt a little shaky too.
Is this a concern for anyone who wants to be a doctor, preferably go into Primary Care?
