First and last time asking for als

Seriously. "Incompetent" and "good patient advocate" are only things that can be confused by a dickhead, salty ol' medic.

I remember my instructor saying, "You all are still young; you run toward the screams and bad noises, and you want to help people. We're fuckin' old. If I see a car on the side of the road, I'll call 9-1-1. I'll help if it's a kid or a pregnant woman. But at the end of the day, I'm getting home to my family. I have a kid that needs me.

When you're new, you think of everyone in that way. All the patients, all of their family members, and you put that into your work.

You didn't do anything wrong, and you showed dedication and a willingness to ask for help, which is more than can be said for a decent number of people in the medical field.

Don't sweat it, bud.
