BlueRose : It's a volunteer position, so I suppose I could just say I am unavailable during those hours.
Gelert : I've already done my anatomy and dissections. I am not grossed out by looking at dead things. I don't mind live bodies (wounds, bodily fluids, odors) at all.
I AM sickened by people taking a pile of dead bodies, heating it up, then handing parts to me to have people eat. I kind of feel like I am part of the 'problem' if I am part of that meat-providing process.
Gelert, you have my sympathies on the pig samples. Yuck!
I am having an internal conflict. These are elderly people mainly, and they do need help cutting their food. My goal there is to help people who need help. This stuff was especially smelly, impossible to ignore like canned cat food.
I was hoping for some magical mental trick I could use. Is there anything I can apply to my nose to block my ability to smell? If I can do that and avert my eyes, I'd do much better.
