Nevermind. I'm just big basic screw-up. I can't learn and I'm an imbecile in general. I feel like I can't do anything right and I feel like I'm making more trouble than I'm fixing.

Return to your regularly scheduled programming while I go find a shallow grave to lay in.

I don't know what's wrong with me or why I'm such a ****ing idiot.

I don't know if I'm just about to lose it and start laughing and it doesn't seem like over anything but then it seems like everything.

I don't even know how to help me.

I was running calls today. Two STEMIs, a FBAO and a jammed up, CTD abdominal pain pt. It was fun to be a medic again.
You've ran more STEMI's today than I have in the last year lol. That does sound like the perfect balance though. Get to do some good for a few people, but not relentlessly beaten down all shift.

Backordered broadheads shipped. Got my on hand broadheads nock tuned and shooting lazers out to 50 yards.

Patiently waiting on October first, sadly someone thought scheduling clinical skills on october 6th was a good idea.

Back from Massachusetts, don’t want to be in Texas anymore. How’s New England EMS?
In terms of quality Massachusetts EMS isn't really it, well not the "desirable" places to live that is. Lots of fire based in the suburbs with pretty good pay so I'd be lying if I never thought about moving back once I get my fire academy out of the way. Innovative EMS is excellent, but so are pay and benefits.

I love Maine but here the quality is again, average. Ask @akflightmedic. Vermont has had paramedics for less than 15 years in any capacity. I hear good things about many places in NH and CT. Rhode Island...well you saw those stories about EMT-Cardiacs and their love of putting ET tubes anywhere but the trachea.

My sister and I get to stay at an absolute gem of a hotel for a month for $1000. They cut us a deal for being long term guests in the time of COVID-19. The reviews are stellar and the hotel manager seems so professional and personable. I am quite excited. The only downside is no microwave, so I'll have to break my habit of eating mainly microwave meals. :p

You could go to a thrift store and get one for 10$

I grew up in CT. There were some pretty great jobs there. Several services and hospitals had intercept paramedic positions that paid really well. (Middlesex and Lawrence + Memorial Hospital)

But, the downside is... It's connecticut. Taxes out the wazzooo. No thanks.

Chillin out at the hotel on R&R from this fire watching it explode because there’s a Santa Ana wind pushing it. 22 separate fires in CA and plenty of new starts today alone. Looks like home is going to be the engine for the foreseeable future.
