I have recently found myself doing a two week slot of dissection. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I greatly appreciate the value of that experience. Not all medical schools provide this opportunity for medical students to learn first hand from dissection.
Whilst doing these dissections I chose to roll up the sleeves of my lab coat. This was not mandatory but I felt more comfortable doing so. It was a room of 100 students and up to 10 lecturers and technicians whom I see during the anatomy practicals and in the lecture theatre. I have followed this blogger for a while and she recently posted a video that describes more about my complicated, ambiguous relationship with my self harm scars and relapses into old behaviours.
