What is the worst that can happen ? 

“Alright and finally maurice repeat the words what’s the worst that can happen? ..remember anxiety is the thought of an uncontrollable event …and what we have learnt in truth is there is no flaming diesel engine hurtling at you at high speed” …..The only problem as I closed my eyes repeating this mantra was the ground trembled and I really could smell the smoke ….several days later waking up in resus an EMT holding my hand implored “Jesus Mr OCONNELL never have we come across a case like yours why didn’t you get out of the way …from within my charred husk of The Irish Patient …I rasped I was told all threats and dangers were imagined all in the head I was told !!!…..The nurses came forward in utter disbelief “but surely you must have realised it was an actual train, actually on fire actually running you over??” …again “Not at all   not a bit of it” ….two other nurses brought over a trolley and smiling “we found your legs in a hedge yesterday  ! ..would you like to keep what’s left of them? shall we  put them with your ear and these tufts of your hair? … Thank you …
