sometimes its not possible to record certain things in clinical language- or in in any other language for that matter- it can only be felt- and the intensity of the feeling goes beyond alphabets or words...
and yet I guess one can understand the feeling ...

I admire your profession. You are so close to human emotions, but you need to remain so detached.
