5. That Poor Lady
I’m a medical student, and the most distressing thing I’ve seen is a lady who had multiple strokes within days. These strokes left her with many neurological deficits.
She had the classic hemiplegic stroke leaving her unable to move her entire right side. She had lost all sensation in her arm as well. The lady was also in constant pain.
The worst part is she then had another stroke which made her lose her voice. She couldn’t even tell anyone for two days that she was in so much pain.
