–Continued from here

When we last met, dear reader, I was bricking it as I saw a Lifepak flying at my head…my life, my future, the Lifepak, all passing in front of my eyes!

Luckily, we were able to catch it, and our catastrophically burnt patient started shouting and swearing at us to “F*CK OFF OUTTA ME ‘OUSE”. So we did. And fast.

Back in the relative safety of a response car, I had the privilege to witness my first report of a vulnerable adult over the phone. 30 minutes later, and we were able to head back to station, and I was able to reflect on what I’d let myself in for. After many more houses and patients like that, I still wake up every morning for shift with a smile on my face, and I still enjoy it, and I hope I will for years to come.
