Hopkins – oh how you torture me

Is anyone else watching this show? It’s like Grey’s Anatomy except that it’s real (and there’s a lot less sex). It’s a six week documentary of the doctors and residents at John Hopkins Hospital. For some reason, I am drawn to these shows and can often be found watching such programs on the Discovery Health channel as well. However, the last two episodes of Hopkins have involved children and parents going through things I can’t imagine. So, I sit crying and feeling terrible for these people. I also feel so lucky and blessed that we don’t have any of these horrible things in our life. Finally, I feel scared that any of our lives can change for the worse in an instant. I want to bubble wrap my kids to secure their safety until their 100th birthday, at least. This is no way to live and yet I ask myself if I’ll watch Hopkins next week. The answer, though I can’t explain it, is most likely, probably…definitely. Mike thinks I’m a raving lunatic on this topic. He wouldn’t even watch ER back in the day or Grey’s Anatomy even though it’s “make believe”. So, I will continue to torture myself and he will continue to think I’m a nutcase. We are perfect for each other!
