    Do doctors or vets ever get so upset about their patients dieing that they start to feel like they can’t do their occupation anymore because they can’t take the pain.

    My dad was a doctor and a very good one. Many of his patients were quite elderly, thanks to decades of exceptional care from him. Yes, it did upset him when patients died. AFter all, he was not made of stone, but it didn’t prevent him from doing his job. Although he was not an emotional man, he had gotten to know some of these patients over decades and care about them. Also, remember that many people confide certain personal secrets only to their doctor, such as sexual behaviors that might affect their health. When people give you that much trust, it must be hard to deal with their death. Still, his focus was on helping the patients who were still alive as much as possible. Just Curious
