I have to write a essay describing an important event, ethical dilemma, acheivement that I have faced and the impact on me.
I tried to commit suicide a year ago by overdosing and ended up in the hospital. It was the most irresponsible thing I have done in my life. I was under a lot of pressure and instead of seeking help from a friend or professional, I resorted to taking my own life. I can never forget the pain that my actions had caused my family and my self: physically and emotionally of doing such a stupid thing.
While, I was there in the hospital the nurses there knew what I had done however could not stress to me that it was the wrong thing to do. They provided me a lot of care and attention from my time in the ER to the ICU to the recovery period. It was right there and then that I looked at nurses and the hardwork and patience that have in taking care of the sick patients. I decided there that, as soon as I get out, I will try to take all the prerequisites and apply for nursing school. I wanted to be part of a profession that made a difference in someone's life. Even though they did not tell me what I had done was wrong, but it was the little things that they provided or did for me that made me see how beautiful life is and how loving people are.
I want to know I can write about this event for my essay. If so, can you please make suggestions how I can further discuss it.
