Another successful cardiac arrest resuscitation. This makes my fourth this year.

And it really has nothing to do with me. It's all about bystander CPR, cops with AEDs and me being in close proximity.
4th to have a good discharge? Thats a damn impressive number. Y'all are doing something right about getting those key early links.

Effing tired of having to deal with the incredible SMI stigma on top of having an SMI in the first place! Next time I see a medical professional use the word "crazy" I am challenging them to a duel.

Brought my car into the mechanic for service on account of brake noise and it starting to shake a bit at 70 mph. They're like, "You need four tires, front brakes, and wiper blades; it'll run you (more money than I have rn)." I'm like, "What's the minimum we can do to make this car safe?" They're like, "Well, the brakes for sure, but the tires are pretty bad." Long story short they're fixing everything now and letting me set up a payment plan. I feel like they really care about my safety. :)

Hmm, seemingly overnight, our EMS Agency used CARES Act monies to buy like 50 Lucas 3 devices and put 2 each on all ambulances. Apparently they don't actually have any written guidelines or SOGs or anything for them yet but have already been used. We just got a familiarization course, though FD has like no interest in buying any. (There's an idea if our Rescue companies getting them to use while flying out patients on ocean and mountain rescues, but Rescue themselves aren't supporting that idea)

Why two on every rig? Do you run that many simultaneous codes?

Two nights ago I fully had the intention of drinking a full beer, maybe two or three. Not really sure how it would affect me, to be honest.

I finished 2.5 sips, each worse than the last.

I laughed when they laughed I didn't drink or smoke or drink energy drinks and they said I would.

I suppose nobody has a suggestion for something with a more mild taste?

I bought this for the snails, but maybe sometimes I'm a snail too.

Beer is lame and tastes like water filtered through grass and dirt. Don't drink because of social pressure, drink because you want to. I'm a cider guy.

I was at home with one of the few people who think I shouldn't drink.

I really did get it for snails.
Can't say I've ever heard the expression "get it for snails."

I literally mean slimy ground crawling salt hating invertebrates. They were eating my basil and peppers and such.
I didn't know beer was a snail repellent 🤷

Not been feeling well for days. Blurrier than normal vision for more than a week, having to pee a lot. Headache and stuff. Feeling hot and cold. Thought maybe I was catching something.

No it's the 160+ BGL. Boy do I wish I had insurance for a PCP visit.

Unless 160+ wouldn't do that. Sometime tell me it's all in my head, please.

Better watch where you spill your beer, Spud...
