Newbie (1/14)



  1. I was diagnosed with PTSD, depression, and an anxiety disorder at the end of last year. I've been doing my best to stay functional and go day by day at this point. ??
  2. oh yes, I am all well too aware of that fact and I was the one who pushed for my docs to find something to control my asthma. I always carry my inhaler and epi pen with me because I am not taking ANY chances!
  3. I was hospitalized a few times last year with my asthma and once for a bee sting (allergic). Haven't been tubed yet but it's come close to it. I finally got on meds that reduced my symptoms by quite a bit so we are aiming for no hospital visits this year for me (except for taking my patients in, of course).
  4. I have been in EMS for 12 years now and have finally landed a job that I love. I work in onsite construction site medicine and it's great. For years I worked private EMS on a bus and ended up hating it for a number of reasons so I quit. I have always wondered about people in other parts of the country/world who have jobs in the EMS field. What do you guys like and dislike about you job?
  5. I play video games on my computer. I love outdoor activities...hiking, camping, biking. Love photography and I have recently gotten into model building (my first big project is a WWII ambulance!)
  6. I'm an asthmatic. In all honestly when my asthma gets so bad I start getting tired out I welcome any assistance. On the other hand if you came at me with a tube and didn't knock my ass out first I'd start swinging! Just my two cents....
  7. broke off my engagement....dealing with my feelings....

  8. Welcome to the wonderful world of EMS in New York State! I'm a Firefighter/EMT-CC and I work on Long Island. What part of the state are you in? This place is great to get info and post questions. Let me know what your number starts with when you get it....I've been a tech for 12 years already....time flies when you are having fun!! Remember...you can never ask too many questions....especially if you are new!
  9. working a triple in the next 2 days! wish me luck!!

  10. Hello earthquake in NY!!

    1. fireemsworld1


      Crazy. I thought I left earthquakes when I moved out of Cali.

  11. It's getting more common over here especially in cities due to the pollution, global warming etc....I just don't like drawing attention to myself if I can help it so toting my neb with me makes me a little self conscious.....
  12. It's amazing what a chiro adjustment can do to improve asthma! I feel soooo much better today! thanks Doc!

  13. I feel a hell of a lot better today! Hooray!!

  14. LOL Mike thanks for the laugh...I needed that! I need to start looking for the positive in all of this I guess. That may help.
  15. Actually I'm frustrated cause I am sick all the time...sick of being sick, ya know? Sick of feeling like crap, sick of being in pain, sick of not being able to breathe, sick of being embarrassed that I have to stop and take all these meds all the time, sick of not being able to live up to my potential because I'm sick all the time, sick of people feeling sorry for me. I love my new job and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I still run 911 with my vollie FD when I am off of work. So I still see my fair share of great calls. I just want to get better!
