Does anyone know what I can do about this? I work as a medical assistant and I see lots of gory stuff. I get dizzy and see stars and feel like im about to pass out. I was planning on doing the nursing program but these attacks keep me from doing what I want to do. They dont allow me to do the best I can do. Can anyone help?

  • Now that you mention it, I do recall that the couple times I almost passed out I hadnt eaten. I guess the combination of no food and seeing someone get cut open made my body react.
