Dog Days of Dying: Paramedic Fiction

Paramedicine isn't a job...

It's a lifestlye filled with hours of boredom punctuated by moments of terror and glimpses of perfection.

Have you ever wondered what paramedics experience? Dealing with 'the job' takes over a third of a medic's life and more. Working twenty-four hour shifts is the industry standard, which makes sleep deprivation also a standard regardless of the Department of Transportation's regulations for other careers. EMS must be able to perform in the worst conditions at any moment, which subjects paramedics to extreme stress hormones, emotional turmoil, and physical wear and tear.

This 5600+ word short story isn't for the faint of heart or minors, but it is for those fascinated with getting a behind the scenes look at EMS. It gets inside the mind of a veteran paramedic dealing with an emergency call. It's an intense sensory ride, and an accurate portrayal of paramedics written in deep 1st person POV. This is the second, standalone story in my paramedic fiction series. Be sure to read my first one, Downgrade.

You know you want to look. Everyone does, they just don't want to admit it.

So why are you waiting?

As a teen, writing became my passion, and like most aspiring writers, my work was terrible, immature, cliched drivel. I enlisted in the Army, attended college for my creative writing degree, became a paramedic for twenty years (one of the few at the time with a degree), and now I'm an EMS supervisor. Crazy, huh? Throughout my life, I've traveled far and pushed myself hard, striving to try almost anything at least once (except skydiving unless the plane is on fire).

I write like I live. Come and explore my imagination.
