    But, Long story-short, I got my belly full and got out of it all together.

    After 10 years in EMS, I can say that you pretty much get numb (or at least I did) to the disfigurement, traumatic injuries, and such. I always tried to concentrate on the injury/illness and focus all my energy on completing the task at hand. If you associate-human/personal emotions while you are in the thick of it, you can't concentrate. The reason it looks so "nasty or disqusting' (again my opinion) is that you associate it with human LIFE and you think about what a normal "body" looks like. You've also been subconsciously trained by parents, friends, relatives, etc as you were brought up that it is scary and revolting.

    Smells are always what got me during my tenure as a medic. Let a drunk vomit around me, or a seizure a patient become incontinent and I am heaving and spewing everywhere.

    I am not going to say I was a super jedi medic with no feelings by any means. Many a day I went home and squeezed my kids until they thought they were going to pop, because of the site of an injured or deceased child. There were times (after a call was complete or once I got off shift that I cried about a specific scenario/incident. There wer times that I cried because I knew that I was lucky for being able to come home because of the danger of the particular call we had run the night before. You get calmed down and begin to think ablout those situations and it's like "Holy Sh*t!! That was way to close!! You keep all of that in during the incident, because a lot of times you don't have time to think about anything but the next 15-20 seconds ahead. Its after the incident that it gets to you.

    I can deal with the real deal, have before and will again probably... although I hope not.

    A girlfriend got ticked at me when I told her to shut that S off... we were watching ER after I came back from afghanistan. They were evacing the hospital because of a biological warfare thing, think it was anthrax... anyway a doctor was helping load up a ICU patient into a helicopter and had patient paperwork... lost grip, it blew to under the tail rotor... not thinking he went back there and picked it up, then stood up right underneath the rotor and lost an arm.

    I had to tackle a private that almost did the same thing under the back of a MH-53 helicopter... when you una** the aircraft you take 1 step off the ramp and do a right or left face depending on where you need to go.

    This guy brain farted and was booking off the ramp straight out towards the tail rotor, and they had touched down in a dip.. I was right behind him and tackled him on step 2... step 4 would have cost him dearly.

    At least my wife understands, having been a paramedic. We don't watch too much realistic stuff because we both have experiences we don't need to re-experience by them being brought up by a tv show.

    Makes it hard to sleep.

    I'm one of those people that love blood and guts movies. However, I don't like it much in real life. Having seen decapitations and other horrors in real life I'll just try to stick to the fake movies. And as stated before the smell of burnt flesh and body fluids are hard to forget.

    Friends if you don't have a filter in place you'll go crazy. I am the same way, why watch blood and gore when you don't have too.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    My dad (FDNY and NYC EMS for many many years) is the same way... he can tell stories of chasing a severed head rolling down the street while laughing but gets grossed out at a commerical for 28 Days Later.

    My wife's a nurse and one thing I can't figure is that she absolutely gets grossed out by slasher/hacker horror flicks, but, one night a long time ago, pizza-nite in the E.R. got interrupted for a farmer's son who's arm came off with his jacket due to a thresher 'close encounter'.

    They finished off the pizzas after shippin' him up to the O.R.!

    Movies, obviously not real....an arm hittin' the E.R. floor, as real as it gets....go figure I reckon!

    The first part reminds me of the beginning of Quincy, ME (great show, I know I'm dating myself....).

    Can relate to all. With the auto fire deal: my last vehicle fire investigation was a 100+ MPH car vs. pole with two teens crispered in the blaze...unpleasant...as was combat.

    Plus, the evidence folks frequently give Arson dicks a bad time about booking in chunks of decedents' lungs into their warehouse operation. They found it most odd.... At least they don't have to attend the post-mortem! --K.

    Jeffry Dahmer and his mother were having a chat over dinner:
    "Jeffrey, I don't like your friends" his mother told him
    "Thats ok Mom" says Jeffrey, "Just push them to the side of your plate"

    One of the MEs observing one of the work of another ME was eating his lunch and did so without so much as a pause.
    I skipped dinner that evening and didn't bother with breakfast the next morning.

    Our neighbor is a Massachusetts State Police Officer. When he is called to respond to a motor vehicle accident, one of the first things he looks for if any
    of the cars is a brown Chevrolet Impala

    His daughter owns a Chevy Impala

    He told me that, because he has know troopers who have responded to motor car accidents, only to find out one of the occupants are their own children.

    My State Police friend says that to this day, the pain he feels when he
    has to call or go to a home of a parent whose kid was killed in an auto accident.




    Curtis: One of the first Milwaukee Police Officers to respond to the apartment of Jeffery Dahmer, opened up the
    freezer and inside the freezer were severed hands, skulls, and other body parts. The Officer thought he heard a scream,and realized it was himself.

    That pretty bad try human BBQ ,man that smell stays in your nose for a few weeks.

    I have seen this for the 2nd or 3rd time and it was on late 2 weeks ago. He was 1 sick individual who was a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Sadly there are thousands more like him around the world who are capable of such horrendous crimes and even when captured, you will never know how many more may have been victims of their deranged minds.

    I have never been to an autopsy but I am told the smell of body fluids is something that never leaves your memory bank as to each person it has it's own distinct odour and mental picture.

    I watched the biography of Jeffery Dahmer. I will never, never, ever again
    moan and groan about the Burger King that is opened 24/7 down the street from my home. At least at Burger King I have a remote idea what I am eating
