But now, fortunately for me (and I hope anyone that has found there way here), that’s going to change. I’ve decided that I have a lot to say about something that I care a lot about doing and that is near and dear to my heart. Medicine. The Emergency Medical Services to be exact. I don’t want to go too in depth yet about any of my ideas yet, but I do want to mention it’s not going to be all postings of my personal stories (though my personal experiences will play a role in backing some of my opinions) and it’s not meant to be geared specifically to EMS providers. I really hope to make people think, and ask questions. I hope to attract people from all different aspects of medicine as well as those with no medical training of their own.
My ultimate goal: change.
So at this point you’re probably thinking one of the following:
“Change? From a blog? This kid is out of his mind!”
“Twenty four years old? I’ve been doing this job as long as you’ve been alive!”
OK. So, maybe a lack of sleep is influencing my thought process. And yes, I’m young and my EMS career only began 5 years ago. But, I’ve seen quite a bit in my short 5 years in an ambulance, and I have a lot to say. I don’t pretend to know everything (…..alright, that’s a blatant lie, sometimes I do pretend to know it all). But I’m a firm believer that everyone has something to teach, just as much as they have something to learn.
And who cares? Well, I do. And you should, too. The things I plan to talk (and sometimes ramble on) about have some sort of impact on everyone.
So, in the next few weeks, keep an eye out for new posts. If you have anything to say on response (good, bad, or indifferent) please post a comment. I’m looking forward to the potential this has to make people think and look at the things we do from another perspective and, hopefully, influence some change along the way.
