Stuffin' our feelings

Ellen elvan mentioned one night she was going to watch "Grey's anatomy" and many of you concurred it's a great show.  Now I am addicted.

One episode I watched last night made me think about what I was told here, and never realized I was doing it while being a smoker.

One of the characters, a very nice gentleman, in his early 50s, is admitted for Small cell lung cancer and COPD which invaded the pleura, he needed surgery to help him breathe.  He is a former smoker,  His chances of survival were only 25%.

And he wants to say his "good bye", having one of the interns record his speech.

As it turned out, all the said good byes were telling bitter truths to many people in his life.

And he is the one saying it: "my whole life I stuffed down all my feelings", I want everyone to know how I really felt.

The surgery was successful, but he still wanted to mail the tapes with his confessions.

Do you think if he were not a smoker, he could have contained all these feelings for a whole life time?

Of course, I know this is fiction, and you might ask, what is the relevance?  I believe the scenario is been written by a former smoker, and created to prompt reflection about smoking.

My 2 cents for the day!
