A person

Instantly he had to assume more responsibility than he had ever expected to have.He had to become an emotional support for a man who had been him so many times before.
During that period he learned a lot about himself and about life.  He ended up spending time around a lot of very sick people. When he would sit with that man in ICU,  he got to see a different side of an illness, a human side.
Many times people are only identified by their disease, but people forget that a person is still inside that body.

    I agree many times ‘people’ forget about the person and only concentrate over the disease, how ever some times such a detachment becomes necessary for objectivity.
