Things get better.....

After my horrible night the other night - I am back on the truck - back onto night shifts......... I love this job - but at the same time I really hate it too. But what can you do - you just have to keep on keeping on because there is always someone out there much worse of then yourself.

Back at my Home Station

After being away for so long I returned to my home station on Monday Night. I worked with my favourite crew partner. But just couldn't get in the mood. Its the first time where my personal crap has really begun to affect my professional working life. To make things worse - I went to someone I knew in not very nice circumstances. I love this job - its become a part of who I am. But lately all I can fixate on is negative affects of the illnesses and injuries etc.

Hang in there Gem! Just remember why you are in the job and focus on the pt mate! If you can get a smile from a stranger, it can all seem worthwhile. I can only imagine what it's like to be on the "frontline" down there right now, but don't lose sight of the fact that it's a temporary situation. Or if it's really all too much, quit. Your pt's deserve to be treated by someone focussed and caring. That is what I would want for my family and friends. It's what I expect from myself as a practitioner. Ultimately, do what is best for you!

Did you have to spend 9months to a year in a classroom, and then have several hours of clinical time? Im not sure exactly how many classroom hours and clinical hours that we had to have, but it was alot!! I am just wondering!! I am curious of the requirements that each state has for EMS school!!
