A letter I got from a fellow Paramedic has caused me to write a long tyrade on the state of EMS. This post will make you mad. It will challenge you and challenge our profession. You will probably see yourself in the words this Paramedic wrote to me. We Need Change.
In the search to find new and interesting ways to order my mind and rid myself of “writers’ block” I’m writing down some randomness. It’s ok, it’s a weekend and I’m on a 48hr shift Saturday and Sunday. It actually worked!
Handling sadness and other negative emotions is just part-and-parcel to EMS and the Emergency Services. How this effects has far reaching implications in our lives, even when it just “Splashes” onto us.
