Every Nurse uses dark humor at some point in their career. It’s how we deal with the ‘shit’ we encounter (quite literally).
The emotional roller coaster we endure on a daily basis is tough. It’s down right soul-crushing at times, and we are expected to just ‘shake it off’ and continue on with our painted smile.
The dark humor is a coping mechanism to help us manage our drained emotional bank. If making a wise-crack about something that most would consider tasteless… than so be it.
I would much rather have a Nurse use this dark humor and cope appropriately, then not deal with their feelings and bury it… only to have it re-surface as something even more sinister.
Not everyone can do this job.
How do you cope?’
