In brief: We're all special

Even us pathologists.
We're mostly the most upbeat, life-affirming people you'll ever meet, but our lives focus on helping people understand the most terrible things. Being a good person and being healthy are more fun in real life, but ask any goth and they'll tell you how much fun dark fantasy is as long as you're sensible enough not to hurt yourself. Cheers.
