i’ve been working in the emergency field for a little over 17months now. my last shift was the first time since, that it was really taxing on me. i love my job because there’s is something in me that brings me absolute joy when helping others and making a positive difference in people lives. i’m usually very good at remanning professional yet having a comforting demeanor while dealing with patients in their situations but yesterday was the first time it really got to me. it seemed like all of our calls were serious patients, in serious situations and it was soooo emotionally draining for me. i wear my heart on my sleeve and i always just want to fix things and make it alright for others but that can’t always be. it was a very tough tough emotional day that i had yet to experience since in the medical filed. i would still relive that day again though, and still help all the people that I did. it was a very humbling experience and i know i played a role in helping them get through dramatic situations in their life’s. and i thank God that he blessed me with such a wonderful opportunity to be able to help others in the way i do and that he blessed me with such amazing wonderful friends that helped me get through my shift. and now thankfully it’s the weekend :-)

Finally started my rescue rides and I must say I gain more and more respect for firemen and paramedics.
