A Quick Update

imageI wanted to provide a quick update with what has been going on in the last (almost) 2 weeks. Firstly, I have joined a network of other blogs. This just helps me get my story out more. You can follow me and my journey at www.ordinarymedic.com.

I’m also going to be doing 2 posts in the near future. First one will catch you up with what is going on with me. The second, I’m going to focus on WSIB a bit. I have a bone to pick with them. And it’s not even about my case. A friend of mine. I want you to realize why we don’t go running for help when we need it. If you manage to get past the stigma, or just don’t care anymore about it, then you have to deal with some pencil pushing D-bag. More on that later though.

Again, thanks for taking a moment to read my ramblings. At last count, over 27,000 views in over 75 countries. Thank you for sharing. And please remember, Keep The Conversation Going.

    As someone who has similar demons I want to thank you for writing this. I too have demons from EMS work as well as demons from other areas of my life. I no longer work in EMS. A physical injury forced that decision. Today I work in mental health as a Certified Peer Specialist, another field that carries demons. I no longer witness these things. Today I hear about them.

    I just wanted to give you a bit of encouragement. Recovery happens. It gets better. I still struggle at times but it’s not everyday anymore. Lately it’s been more of a struggle for me. I heard some things that awoke demons in me that I thought had been put to rest. Beginning to deal with it this time is easier though. I have an excellent support system now. I know how and when to ask for help. I know how much peer support helps and that’s why I wanted to thank you for this blog. I was not able to put my battle with demons into words when I was at the point of my battle you’re in right now. I commend you for that and to all of our brothers and sisters out there who are suffering I want to say, ask for help. It doesn’t just go away on its own but it does get better.
