I have experienced similar transformations, I think.
1) I am definitely less of a fan of people now. My work has shown me many tender moments, and I have met some lovely people through it; however, we tend to meet people at their worst, and it's a little demoralizing sometimes. I am more suspicious and less trusting. I don't always see the best in people anymore. It's a huge downer.
2) I am not very shy anymore, and have gained a lot of confidence. I am still a 100% introvert, but small talk comes easier to me now. I guess when you have to ask five people if they've pooped that day, all other conversation comes a little more naturally after that.
I still get a little nervous in new clinical situations, but I'm leaning to rely on myself and my knowledge more, so it's easier to get myself through without needing to ask for help as often.
3) I am that much more grateful for my health! I definitely still could stand to work on my sweet tooth, but I am now much more likely to exercise and at least try to eat a balanced meal most days of the week. Some health problems cannot be avoided, but a lot can, so I'm going to take good care of this body while I've got it.
4) I do think I'm more compassionate now, despite having vey little faith in much of humanity. People have been through some crazy stuff! I've taken care of a lot of people I genuinely dislike, but I'm finding it much easier now to respect them and exhibit real kindness to them, knowing that no one gets through this life unscarred by something.
5) I fear for my physical safety more. Maybe it's the population I work with, but I am SICK and TIRED of going out every day wondering if I'm going to get beaten up. I bet if I'd gotten my English degree and become a copy editor like I wanted to in high school, I wouldn't be preoccupied by this.
6) I didn't think I could get any more pale than I used to be. I was wrong. Night shift has made me almost translucent. It's amazing.
