I suspect it is hard to love a frontline ambulance person.
We get up early and don’t have time to drink coffee over the newspaper.
We come home late and are too tired to cook.
We work extra because we know there are sick people who need us.
We don’t get too excited over your minor “boo-boo”.
We have seen far worse.
We don’t want to talk when we come home.
We have talked all day.
We don’t want to move when we come home.
We have moved all day.
It may seem, that we have left all our caring, our heart, and our love at work, then come home to you empty.
We probably have.
But we don’t tell you that many times at work we are scared.
Scared we are missing something.
Scared we will let our patient down.
Have to deal with angry families and yelled at by patients.
I suspect it is hard to love ,an ambulance person but know this:
Your ambulance person needs your love. Needs your understanding. Needs to know that you “get it”.
Needs to be taken care of.
Needs you to do the hardest work you may ever do, which is to love an ambulance person.
I would like to thank those of you out there who love us and let us do this work, this calling, this life: Emergency care.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
