Night class is in session. Homework on the blackboard, apples on my desk. I will get to class in the morning when I get there.
Ran calls tonight covering for a fellow squad member. We had another 20 something CPR. Similar to the last one. Took a lot out of me. I need to sleep in in the morning, so I am posting this tonight. Heroin cut with fentanyl. Nasty deadly stuff. It’s in the area, the hospital staff said they are seeing a lot of it. No autopsy yet, but that is the assumed cause at this point. So sad, a four year old little boy asking why daddy isn’t getting up. Heartbreaking.
Came home after midnight with puke all over the front of me. Yeah, charming, I know. Airway is a dirty job.
At the debrief we explained to the newbies that it is not an “overdose”, but illegal drugs. All the EMTs were in agreement, so there SD.
The Immigration proposals of the the Republicans will earn them nothing but imprecations from their base.
Henry Nostrilla Waxman’s announced retirement yesterday brought back memories of his many uttered imprecations on the TEA Party.
Heroin cut with fentanyl! Those people are desperately hooked ... and stupid.
You are doing the job that few people could possibly endure. God bless and keep you, dearest tioga.
Imprecation is the name of a heavy metal band based in a town where I once lived — Missouri City, TX.
Maybe they are nice fellows, but their pictures look like the sort of folks who might be involved in your heroin trade. (BTW we are having the same problem in this county. In fact, County officials held a ‘heroin’ summit in conjunction with the Republican Party on Wednesday night this week. I didn’t go, since I didn’t think that I had anything to add.)
Thanks for thinking to post last night. Hope you can rest today.
I don’t know why there was disagreement over this. Overdose, in common parlance, indicates too much of something. This was not too much, this was an illegal substance specifically created by mixing two things together. They didn’t take too much of it, it was a deadly mixture.
Sorta like ammonia and bleach. Sure you'll have clean floors, but you're imprecating your lungs and eyes to the caustic fumes of chloramine.
I hope you get some needed rest today.
Heroin, is a nasty thing....because of the small amounts in which it kills.
Not in the category of lesser items that should be decriminalized.
That’s the stuff. The police have set up a special hotline for tips on it. In bags marked “Theraflu,” “Bud Ice” or “Income tax.”
If they are dying, then they took too much. They took too much because they were not expecting a much stronger drug to be mixed in with their heroin.
It’s a semantical thing. If I normally inject half a syringe and I injected half a syringe today, I have in one sense given myself the same quantity. So it is not a change in dose.
But if the substance injected is stronger, then I have taken more of the “active ingredient” and have overdosed in that sense.
If I normally drink a gallon of beer and instead drink a gallon of wine, I have taken the same quantity, but ingested more of the active ingredient. If I do this unwittingly, I could drink too much.
Found your example:
In order to be the worst person ever to be president,
Obama underwent intense imprickation during his education.
That is how adulterants cause overdoses, as in this mixture.
Libs curse the rich, use imprecation
“They’re thieves” is their clear implication
They bring in false data
And extend it, pro rata
“Garbage in and out” amplification
I think it’s time to do away with the minimum wage. Let the market decide.
A+++ clueless elites won’t care.
