Wounds and The Wounded

The first, on my upper arm, sort of looks like a love bite, doesn't it. Which is ironic.
The second, demonstrating how far between the seventh and eighth ribs a pair of scissors had been inserted. The patient wept when I told her I couldn't give her i.v morphine, which I found telling regarding her motivation for (repeatedly) sticking herself.

Yikes, what a nasty patient.

Utmost respect for doing the work that you do.

Hope that you feel better soon.
