    Insomnia is kind of a serious problem. Lack of sleep can lead to other general health problems as well as poor quality of life overall.

    Well, uh, yeah, that said, 9/10 times I'm dealing with random bullshit like head-colds and shit and I'm only an EMT-I.

    Actually I think "trouble sleeping" is probably the most common complaint I deal with. No, wait, colds are. Then trouble sleeping.

    What seriously?

    Cause like I had incredibly terrible food poisoning for a couple of days and eventually got my flat mate to call 999. They asked me some questions and were then like "yeah, no, we're not sending anyone - just drink some fluid replacement stuff and wait it out okay?"

    If someone called saying they couldn't sleep I bet they'd just laugh.

    Well like I said if I worked in a normal EMS at my certification level my response to that sort of thing would probably be to say "Not my job" and leave. But I'm a platoon medic in the army. I am literally the highest echelon of healthcare here.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that the telephone person asked me the question - not paramedics that arrived.

    They never sent anyone because my complaint was too ridiculous.

    I dunno how army medicine works but I'm assuming everyone there should be fairly young and fit so I'd probably just laugh if people whinged about stupid shit. Though psych issues would be fairly important to highlight.

    Well, yeah. But it remains something you go see your GP about - you don't bother a hospital with it.

    Reason I don't want to be GP..

    You put it in there when it's still small and let it grow.

    Oh. I thought you guys were still talking about GP.

    I'm tired so ignore me.

    That's usually what I do. Sometimes I hand out tubes of vagisil.

    The closest thing to "psych issues" is usually having trouble sleeping. Not really anything to do about that except maybe chemical sleeping aids. For actual psych stuff (We've had one person experience flashbacks and disorientation and resulting freakouts) there's a combat stress team that we can take them to to talk to but that's all they do.

    Get some dwarves to build a hall inside of a mountain.

    Dwarves love making everything dragon-sized.

    Fair enough. Just keep on eye on the plans and if you can come, so much the better

    I had a friend get taken in for observation after not being able to sleep for three days.

    Certainly.

    I've got my fingers crossed I'll find a steady job soon, living with my parental units looking for jobs every day is making it rather difficult for me to plan anything at all.

    Apparently last night my high school football team advanced to the playoffs in a game that went into 12 overtimes and had a final score of 84-81.

    I don't care about football, much less my hometown team, but that's the craziest fucking thing I'll hear all day.

    Milk in a plastic bottle?

    edit: i guess that's the same thing as a plastic carton. I'm just imagining a 2L pop bottle full of milk.

    Cartons went away in the early nineties here. Then we had plastic bottles. Now bags are phasing in due to the reduced amount of packaging it involves.
