Nothing good is easy!



Landlords HATE evictions (I know because I am one) they're a costly, fucking PITA :twisted:

As long as it isn't for non-payment, there always, always a 99.99999% chance almost anyone can talk their way out of an eviction.

Good luck on the job hunt and here's to hoping your kid grows wings and learns to fly straight (out of the nest) without too much strife :wink:

ETA FUCK! Looks like a big fat snow storm is going to hit today, ugh, still have some loose ends in the yard *running outside to cram them into storage* help!!

I admitted it was my fault, asked if he was willing to let me take care of it. He agreed.

Since my before ex moved away, I have had a continuous roll in my two boys lives. I am happy that he is ready to move out, take on all that is adulthood. Saddened at the same time. This will be good for both of us :)

Snow?? Well, we have had some flakes here. It has mostly been around 0C (32F) for the last few weeks. Maybe we will make it to Halloween this year before it gets snowy and cool (-20C and cooler), for now - shorts & a bunny hug..

I just responded on a cardiac arrest.

It was a girl, 2 weeks past her 14th birthday.

She had committed suicide by overdosing on a list of meds that she had besides her, all checked off, as she apparently took each item on the list.

And she left a note for her Mom one of the cops read aloud.

Her brother, and sister, crying in another bedroom.

Fuck! I am so sick of this job sometimes, I don't know what gives me the power to get up everyday, and come back to it.

This one almost did it for me. But here I sit, waiting for the next fucking call.

Thanks BB, most of us wouldn't consider us hero's.

But many of us also wonder how it is that we do what we do and not go fucking bonkers.

Me....this call will bother me for a few days, like others in the past.....then it will fade from the immediate conscious, but never forgotten. Like so many others.

Some things I can see without closing my fucking eyes. Till they are closed for the last time.

Thank you all. Yes, as you point out Sham, this is a good place to come and yell FUCK THIS SHIT! and being amongst friends, even spread apart by distance, though not by spirit, helps.

Ygmir, your not the only one who had to wipe a few tears. 2 seasoned medics also did, as well as a new medic to our company, with a short time on the job, but also a mother to a 13 year old girl, and it hit her hard. What I love about the burner community, is that we know the power of a a good hug, and on calls like this, you just want to hug your partners as well, but here in the default world, often don't due to fear of sexual harrassment, Sigh......

I don't understand why kids feel that suicide is their only option. And that it is forever.

Fuck.

Fuck, Sailman, you can imagine this hits me close to home.
I don't know that I think EMTs are sane--but that's mostly based on one case. I don't know about you, but he loved the work. And it ate into him. It's a fucking strange thing.
I think that adrenaline junkie is part of what makes many emts. So fucking what. Better do that than fucking go out and joy ride.
As for the kid--oh fuck. It's becoming more visible with the emphasis on bullying and queer youth. I don't know how to reach out to kids, but I know they need to hear, from grown-ups they are close to and from grown ups that are in the public eye, that they are valued, that it gets better (thank you, Dan Savage), that there are other choices, that they can access better solutions right now...
I don't know if you're a "hero"; I don't know what that means. I know you are doing an important job that makes things better for all of us, and thank you for doing it.

Sail Man, I bet you have provided important help to many sick and injured people in your career, and maybe even saved a life or two. Helping people when you can is what matters.
I've been hauled away in an ambulance twice in my life, and I was mighty grateful for that help. Thank you for all that you and your colleagues do.

By the way folks, I once had a neighbor who was an EMT. This was at the time when I was hauled away the last time. He said they really appreciate when a patient sends them a thank-you note. All you need is the address of the station house and they will all read it. I'm posting this to spread the word -- please pass it along.

Thank you all, every last fucking one of you.

Fishy, I can't speak for Scott of course, and the adrenaline thing, yep, thats a valid part of it. But for many of us, it's more then that. It's wanting to help others. It's trying to do our part to make society and our little part of the world better. I'm sure those were part of Scott's reasons as well.

I love the work, but after 21 years, I'm getting tired. But when the day comes to walk away, it will be hard. I know I will miss the siren call.

But I won't miss getting puked on, unless I'm the fucker doing it. And that I can only blame on cheap booze.

I can't even post my FUCK!! After yours. I was that suicidal 14 year old but never did go through with it, and damn if it doesn't get better, and better beyond your wildest dreams. I've had a rotten day, and am in no shape mentally to do what I have to do tomorrow, but shit, I wish I could hug that girl and tell her to just have patience, hang on, and that she is loved.
