I was on a truck in a county up by Virginia this weekend where they typically run three, maybe four calls in 24 hours. It was a beautiful day, a long drive from school, and I was thinking maybe we’d all get some sleep and I’d drive around the mountains in the morning.
I completely and utterly forgot the destructive nature of my ‘black cloud’. We ran so many calls that we barely sat down, our first one being a code that we worked on scene for 30 and then transported. And an amphetamine overdose. And out of county transports (two plus hours there and back). My preceptor said he hadn’t had a day like that in over a year.
After being up for 24 hours I enjoyed watching the sun rise on my way home, stopped in a small town for some gas, and booked it back to my own bed where I slept until 1300 today.
