Well, another day another shift come and gone...and for some reason the islands have been busy. We ran 5 calls and just as many standbys. Nothing too critical, just run of the mill weak and dizzy all over and allergic reactions. We also had a girl who called because of a migraine. Now, I have migraines. I get them about once a month. I know the pain associated with them. I know about the photophobia, the nausea, the thundering pain. You just want to lay in the dark and make it all go away. I have even gone to the ER because of them. But call an ambulance? Especally when they have a history of them, its really not like they don't know what's going on. It was also one of those overdramatic bitches that just make your job, which is to be compasionate and sympathetic, that much harder. It's when they don't help you out by answering your questions, that you need to ask, like how long have you had the headache and have to taken anything for it do you just get frustrated. And then when they fake "passing out" is when I really want to lean down a whisper "Get your ass up and quit acting like a kindergardener" Oh and the screaming, she just kept screaming. I tried to tell her to quit the hollaring and it just might help, but what do I know?
