would you blame me?

I was talking to a doctor earlier and he asked me this question. Would I blame him if he operated on a family member of mine and two days later, that family of mine died due to the operation? Would I blame him?

Yes I would. I would blame him simply because I need to blame someone, in the same way that we all feel the need to believe that there is a God who controls our life and makes decisions for us. God's will and all that. Do I really believe that he is to blame? No. But I need to put my anger towards someone and channel whatever wrath I have in me so that I can slowly let go.

He thanked me for lettiing him see it from a patient's POV. I do wonder though if most people will agree with me.

  1. I remember an episode on Grey's Anatomy. It was clear that the doctor did everything she could but the patient's family still put all the blame on the doctor. Death of a family member is very hard to accept. The pain can be overwhelming. Perhaps some people find the need to blame it on someone.


Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."

Showering you with unicorn poop so you'd always stay magical! Heart heart!
