Think back to the time that you were really sick.

I'm not talking about sniffles, sneezing, and body aches. I'm talking about full-on you're-about-to-die sick. Like when you were feverish, having cold sweats, and hugging the toilet.

Remember how miserable you were? How you didn't even have the energy to take a shower, let alone even wash your face?

Brush your teeth? Bah! It'd be a lucky day if you got out of your pajamas and combed your hair.

Well, multiply that a few times and that's probably where most people are after an operation.

At my job, I make most of my "customers" look like this at some point during our professional relationship. And I get paid to do it. It's a strange thing.
