no seriously it depends on the crisis. I can have a plethora of emotions running depending on what it is and how I can best fix the problem.
Usually I stop and size up the situation and make everyone else calm down and then do what needs done. I guess you could say I do the opposite of panic. Well, I have to do that because I can’t function well with too much “noise” in my head.
Believe it or not, I’m pretty good in an emergency. Being I was a lifeguard, I know quite a bit of first aid and then my background as a lunchroom/playground lady, I’ve taken seminars in trying to reason with people. The funny thing is that I get all in a tizzy “after” the crises. The time Jason caught on fire, I got his shirt off and the fire out and we both collapsed on the floor in a fit of giggles.
Strangely I am always calm, I assess the situation at hand and look at the whole then if there is chaos I take control and sort what ever it is out. Only after once every thing has sunken in do I go “huh”??? My end reaction depends on the crisis at hand, I have been through a few, some worse than others.
Hope you all have the most wonderful changing of times, 2009 is going to be an awesome year for all of you I just know it! *hugs*
I tend to hold it together, fix the problem and then collapse.
If no one is about to die, I fly into a panic.
If the crisis seems life threatening, there is this strange voice that comes into my head and talks me through everything. I stay calm and do whatever seems to require doing.
Then when it’s over I melt into a quivering mass of incompetence.
FREAK OUT!!! I don’t do well in emergencies I’ll be honest!! I haven’t been in too many REAL emergencies, I’m sure I could pull it together and do what I need to do. I do fine with blood but it’s the broken bones I have a problem with. *cringe*
I’m very good at it. I worked in an ER for a year. I saw a lot of things that most people would run away from. I also went to EMT classes and saw some gruesome videos and studied with my husband. I love it. It’s an adreneline rush and feels good to help others who need it so much. When my husband had a blood clot in his brain, I stayed really calm and was able to ask the military, doctors, ect. questions I needed too and make arrangements, but was freaking out inside of coarse! I also am CPR certified, but who knows-I am scared to try it! I hope I never have too. I’ve been around a lot of family emergencies-my grandma had a few heart attacks while living with us.
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!! Have a fun, safe night!
With vigor, speed and whatever is necessary!
I am very good at these types of situations, i have had plenty of bloody moments, and hospital vists.
I am calm, if I am the only one there to care for the emergency person. If there are other grownups who are capable, I am more likely to fall into a panic attack.
It all depends….if there’s a burglar I will charge him…if someone is injured, I’m pretty calm..but don’t ask me to look up a number and dial it.
I’m pretty calm. My folks pounded into my head at a very early age that there’s no point in freaking out, that just causes more trouble. So I am able to stay calm, and just do what needs to be done, whether it be lead or follow.
