Well, I've been in the business for 32 years and still learn something new every time I roll on a call.
I'm a KATRINA victim/survivor/responder, and am slowly rebuilding my life and my home, as well as dealing with the psychobabble shit that came with it... nightmares, short temperedness, a propensity to get the shakes in a bad thunderstorm... I'm rold it's PTSD.
I have a warped sense of humor, and can trade put downs and one liners with the best of them. And will enjoy an adult libation with the sender, especially when they use a line I like!
I value friendship and can use all the friends I can get. Sometimes I need to vent, and sometimes relive those bad days in 2005 just to deal with the insanity that they created.
More to follow... Stay tunes for chapter 2!
