I think I am losing it, burnt out already from the bohemeth that is private, for profit EMS. I stopped caring already, haven’t had a run where I made the slightest difference in a long while. I’ve been precepting new hires & medic students for a few months yet I’ve only been a medic myself for a little more than a year.
I’m hard on myself, so are many of the great medics I know. It must be a common thread. Here are two posts by to great bloggers that will help get you out of your own funk.
Doctor Grumpy made me laugh. I actually snorted. I really needed a laugh today. If you are not following him you should be, he’s one of the funniest bloggers I read. http://drgrumpyinthehouse.blogspot.com/2010/04/quick-what-is-it-looks-like-soap.html
Rogue Medic posted a great bit on ignorance. We all need to absorb this and adjust our thinking accordingly. http://roguemedic.blogspot.com/2010/04/ignorance.html
