New Post! New Post! New Post!

Wow... it's been a while since my last real post. I apologize for that. Honsestly, it because my life really isn't that interesting outside of EMS. I have an ordinary life in which I do an extraordinary job. A job I love, a job I owuld do for the rest of my life if my body would let me, but alas, it will not. I have been struggling with it since I went out on injury back in March. I have made other plans...plans that I thought I would not have to make. Like going back to the Trauma Center and going back to school to learn something else. This has been an extreamly hard couple of months for me. I am normaly an active, hard working individual. And for the past three months I have not been able to do anything that I normaly would do. I have been inactive, gained weight and missed work terriblly. I have been receiving a paycheck thankfully, however it has been about half of what I have becaome to live on. Between rent and car payment ( I just bought a new Xterra back in September)I have nothing left for the creature comforts like cable internet, new clothes, groceries. I have never had to ask my parents for support other than like 20 bucks here and there and huge purchaces like tires for my car. But now I have been leaning on them alot for everything. So life has been a little bit hard. Thank god for my family. It could be a whole lot worse.

But other than that life has been fine. I'm working on getting back to work, I started PT last week. I can lift 15 lbs now. Hopefuly by the end og june I will beable to go back to the life I love. Only to leave again to start the second part of my life. a career change at only the age of 26. But it must be done I guess...

Hey, you might have been "broken," but you're put back together and starting something new! You're stronger than you might have thought! I'm cheering for you!
