Abstract

Awake yet numb, oriented yet Lost, composed
but shattered! My mind was not processing. There
was a complete block to reception. Rushing stretchers,
buzzing voices, queue chaos and I could hear yet not
understand my surroundings
Excuse me? A soft voice brought me back to the
happenings, to the existence in fact.
Two months down the post-graduate training I was
on duty in Emergency Room (ER). She was an old lady
with grey hair trembling body but bright eyes, who had
come over for her diabetic control with the sugar level
of 500mg/dl. I addressed and advised her necessary
investigations including ABGs, I wrote along with some
others.
