Honestly

I don’t understand why the majority of human beings fool themselves into thinking they have to be with someone to be happy or “feel complete”. 


Doesn’t it feel much better to be be assured of how you effect others lives in a more positive, self sacrificing, and unselfish way? 

What makes you different is who you are, if you’re living your life by letting people, habits, and emotions define who your core being is, you will never ever be truly happy. 

In turn what rubs me raw is the very ignorance I believe contributes to the downfall of most, is also something I’am very guilty of taking part in.  

I went through various stages in life, like most people do.
When I overcame most of the obstacles that were either in part created by myself or others (that I chose to let influence me in a negative way), I had questions.

I don’t like the majority of the answers I’ve gotten, but as painful as some of them were … . life goes on.

I just realized how much I hate most medics, when they arent bitching and complaining because they had to leave the station for a basic sick call they have  this superiority complex which makes them think they are better then everyone around them.

Just because I wear a shirt with a fire departments name on it doesnt mean I dont have the same medical cert as you. 

Why the fuck do they they take things so personally? 
My crew ran 10-15 bullshit calls yesterday but do you see me complaining about it?

Stop being a pain in my ass and earn your paycheck like the rest of us, whilst not complaining.

I agree, then again I’m a Libra.
I know Sagittarius and Aries to be true, although I wouldn’t put Pisces in that group.

My evening.

Hard to imagine where I thought my life was headed, I did enjoy the majority of it.
(This is my old roomate from a set we did awhile back.) 

Oh and in the second picture that place(Agora) has since burned down, Halloween morning last year in a three alarm blaze.

Took this three or four years ago, I have a piece on my right arm that was inspired by Camels art packs.

It’s good to know that even though we have made mistakes … . and sometimes live selfishly, the opportunity to open your mind and reach outwardly will always be there.

A Fireman’s Wish… ” I Wish You Could ” I wish you could see the sadness of a businessman as his livelihood goes up in flames Or that family returning home, only to find their house and belongings damaged or destroyed. I wish you could know What it is to search a burning bedroom for trapped children, flames rolling above your head, your palms and knees burning as you crawl, the floor sagging under your weight as the kitchen beneath you burns. I wish you could comprehend A wife’s horror at 3 A.M. as I check her husband of forty years for a pulse and find none. I start CPR anyway, hoping against the odds to bring him back, Knowing intuitively it is too late. But wanting his wife and family to know everything possible was done. I wish you could know The unique smell of burning insulation, the taste of soot-filled mucus, the feeling of intense heat through your turnout gear, the sound of flames crackling, And the eeriness of being able to see absolutely nothing in dense smoke sensations that I have become too familiar with. I wish you could understand How it feels to go to work in the morning after having spent most of the night, hot and soaking wet at a multiple alarm fire. I wish you could read My mind as I respond to a building fire, ‘Is this a false alarm or a working, breathing fire? How is the building constructed? What hazards await me? Is anyone trapped or are they all out?’ Or to an EMS call, ‘what is wrong with the patient? Is it minor or life threatening? Is the caller really in distress or is he waiting for us with a 2x4 or a gun?’ I wish you could be In the emergency room as the doctor pronounces dead the beautiful little five-year old girl that I have been trying to save during the past twenty-five minutes, who will never go on her first date or say the words, “I love you Mommy,” again. I wish you could know The frustration I feel in the cab of the engine, the driver with his foot pressing down hard on the pedal, my arm tugging again and again at the Air horn chain, as you fail to yield right-of-way at an intersection or in traffic. When you need us, however, your first comment upon our arrival will be, “It took you forever to get here!” I wish you could read My thoughts as I help extricate a girl of teenage years from the mangled remains of her automobile, ‘what if this were my sister, my girlfriend, or a friend? What were her parents’ reactions going to be as they open the door to find a police officer? I wish you could know How it feels to walk in the back door and greet my parents and family, not having the heart to tell them that I nearly did not come home from this last call. I wish you could feel My hurt as people verbally, and sometimes physically, abuse us or belittle what we do, or as they express their attitudes of, It will never happen to me. I wish you could realize The physical, emotional, and mental drain of missed meals, lost sleep, and Forgone social activities, in addition to all the tragedy my eyes have viewed. I wish you could know The brotherhood and self-satisfaction of helping save a life or preserving someone’s Property, of being there in times of crisis, or creating order from total CHAOS. I wish you could understand What it feels like to have a little boy tugging on your arm and asking, “Is my Mommy O.K.?” Not even being able to look in his eyes without Tears falling from your own and not knowing what to say. Or to have to hold back a long-time friend who watches his buddy having rescue breathing done on him as they Take him away in the ambulance. You knowing all along he did not have his seat belt on. Sensations that I have become too familiar with. Unless you have lived This kind of life, you will never truly understand or appreciate who I am, what we are, or what our job really means to us. I WISH YOU COULD!

Rant:

I love how it seems like I’m the only one on shift with medical certs that knows how to properly do even basic skills. I love my medics out here, but my guys can be such whine bags sometimes. Is holding C-Spine really that hard folks?

Oh and if you have no medical training whatsoever id appreciate it if you didn’t bitch because your guy took my bags and forgot to leave me a head bed, I was doing patient assessment, helping stabilize the patient and webbing them(which you probably can’t even do properly).

Karmas a bitch and I thought it was funny how you kneeled down in urine.
As well if I knew your pregnant wife a little better I’d tell her about the little visitor you had up at the station half of the shift, but if shes stupid enough not to know that you need a hand holding I’d rather pass on the drama.
