Sorry for not finding a better title for this topic! So I started volunteering for a hospital not long ago and it was a little shocking to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm ok with blood and everything, but I was shocked to see people with breathing tubes and all the other medical equipment wired to them. I have never in my life stayed at a hospital; maybe that's why it came a little shocking to me. But I felt so bad about the people lying in those beds and so helpless, not being able to help them much. I was kind of anxious on my first day and sometimes my mind would go blank. I know it might sound pathetic to some people who are obviously more experienced than me, but I know it's a completely normal reaction. I just don't know how to deal with it. Please give me some advise!!
