I want to ride !
I sit here and I listen to my radio tones go off and I wish I could just jump into my car and go when they need someone, But I can't :( I am still out on Medical leave .. even though its only been a week .. that week is not easy for me. I LOVE to ride. Being part of the crew and running a call brings some sense of accomplishment to my self ( I guess ) .. I really do not know how to explain it. I also look forward to spending time with not only my boyfriend ( who rides with me ) but I also get to spend time with other friends who I have grown close too. It's my way of getting away from my everyday life as a mom. Most women or should I say moms look forward to maybe a night out with their friends or husband or loved one, maybe going to the movies, dinner or even a day at the spa. ME ... Non of that is important.. I would not mind doing it .. do not get me wrong, though running a call .. being on an ambulance and spending time with my friends (who are part of the ambulance ) is relaxing and something I truly do enjoy! Though I do have to say I like the rush of it all. The excitement when we get a call with someone in Cardiac Arrest or an MVA ... You never know what you are going to come up too .. BUT its not that I WANT someone to be hurt .. ( NOT AT ALL ) its the adrenalin that you get when going to the call. ( Do you understand ?? ) and once you get to that call and you save a life .. it sure makes you feel good. Though then you get those calls that you just could not help makes things a little worse :( But regardless it makes it all worth it .. the pain, the crying, the laughter, the smiles ... Its my life as an EMT and I truly love it !!!!
