Visiting the Deceased Part II

As I mentioned previously, all visits or viewings must be arranged by appointment prior to the day. The mortuary is not somewhere you can just arrive and expect to be able to see someone, we even ask the maintenance team and other people from the hospital to make appointments if not an urgent call.

Autumnal Days & Death Cafes

When I first started doing on call I was absolutely terrified about leaving my phone somewhere I couldn’t hear it. A billion different scenarios would run through my head, I could imagine all the different things that might happen and what I may have to do. I also assumed that whole time that it would...

Science vs. Emotions

Last update I gave clues that my practical assessment was pending, what I didn’t say... Continue Reading →

No Pockets In Shrouds

It’s true, shrouds do not have pockets. I heard this proverbial saying this week while my other half was binge watching Shameless and it hit me as not only true, but also annoying. What if shrouds did have pockets? I mean, it’s not as if you could fit much in there but it would be... Continue Reading →

Renewed & Revived

As promised, here I am back in July to start again with my posts. I am pleased to write that I have been looking forward to doing this yet again and I feel much better than I did when I decided to take the break. The anxiety is still there, brimming under the surface of... Continue Reading →
