Phew, I know I know I know. Been a long time. But I have good reason I promise. Had a bout of writer's block. Then I found out my lease is up alot sooner than I thought so I had to find a place to live otherwise I was gonna be living at the women's shelter that I have grown to know and love. But I have found a wonderful place to live. A place that is ALL my own. My first place that is mine all mine. I don't have to share with anybody. More rent and I have to work a little harder to actually afford it, but a space that is all your own is worth that extra two shifts a month I think. And it has a pool. So seriously, yeah, two extra shifts is worth a pool.
Man, yall...we were crazy busy this weekend too. That full moon thing is so true, and all but one was some BULL-shit. The one was one of our frequent flyers that everytime you see she is actully sick, but because of crack. You just go "Goddamnit!, You were doing so good! What the hell happened?!" and she shruggs, all while fighting to breath. You CPAP her, load her up with NTG and haul ass to the hospital, go any slower and you will be tubing her. You just pray the whole way that she didn't wait too long to call you, because you can't get a line so you can't RSI her and you for damn sure don;t want to nasally tube her, she doesn't care for the CPAP, so you know she ain't gonna like that tube shoved down her nose.
The rest were all just alot of uncooraperative people who thought that EMS were either taxis to downtown or "unresponsive" who were gonna "faint" everytime we tried to stand them up. And every one of our "fainters" were a good 3 bills give or take. i've already has back surgery once, I'm not having it again. so I' not gonna catch you. You can faint. Not one of our "fainters" hit the ground. They all somehow made it to either a sofa or a chair or somewhere soft. One even made it clear across the room to the sofa. It was a fucking miracle.
Then there was the drunk college kids. How do you drink that much? No Seriously? How? I've been drunk, really drunk. I broke my foot in five places I was so drunk. But I have never been so drunk that I was unresponsive and EMS had to suction vomit out of my airway.
