Finally finished all the paper work for last years (2016) Poppy Appeal. My area raised over £12K for the Poppy Appeal. Well worth all the grief and hard work that went into organising it. Woop! Woop!

Took the NREMT exam yesterday... and passed on the first shot!

The countless hours of studying and as many ride alongs as I could convince the shifts to take me on was worth it :-)

I am now a nationally registered EMT with just a bit of paperwork to finish for my state license.

It is not adversity itself that makes one great, it is our actions when faced with hardship that define us. Never forget your purpose. Never forget the oaths you have made and why you made them.

Finally completed an essay which has been bothering me for over a month now.
Hand in date is Wednesday, but I'll hand it in tomorrow and just relax. Sadly, they gave us a new essay today. :-(

Not really a boast, but more of an anti-rant.

So I had an ultrasound and was given the all clear. My organs are looking fine. I also had some blood tests and they came back normal, although they want to re-test my kidneys under different circumstances (no meat for the day before).
Great stuff, I'm not dying of liver failure.

It did create a mystery, however. Why was I suffering so many abdominal pains if everything is fine? I came to the conclusion that it was stress that was fucking me up.

Anyway, it's good to know that everything is looking OK inside me.

Stress is a pretty gnarly thing at times. Out of curiosity, do you still have an appendix? I had occasional severe abdominal pain with big gaps between and invariably chalked it up to stress/eating habits then one day I had immensely worse abdominal pain than ever before and ended up with an emergency appendectomy in the middle of the night. Haven't had anything worse than indigestion since and it's been about 7 years.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Hmm...interesting. I do indeed still have an appendix. Hopefully this isn't what's causing the problem. An exploding appendix isn't a fun thing.

Dude, tell me about it

I honestly couldn't stand upright as I admitted myself to the hospital the pain was so bad. Crawled to and up the stairs of my basement apartment over about a 20 minute period to let my (at the time) girlfriend into my place so we could drive to the Hospital. Apparently the real danger is if you go into serious pain like that and then it suddenly goes away, which is a potential sign that your appendix has perforated and is currently releasing 'fuck your life up' toxins into your system as pressure is released.

Of course, dude, I'm no doctor. Just a thought I had as I read your post. Might be worth asking your doctor about? I dunno. He might just tell you it's a useless idea and couldn't possibly be the source of the issues you've been having.
