There’s an electro festival close to where I work and every year, we admit a few dozen overdoses. Knowing what we’re up against makes it so much easier for us to take care of you. We’re not here to judge, we’re here to help. We realize you didn’t intend to overdose, you just got unlucky.
I started writing this poem at 7am one morning after my girlfriend left for work. We had been fighting about her trouble expressing feelings and I was reflecting on how hard it must be to do her job. As I started writing, she texted to say she was getting her friend Stacy as a patient. We went through the grief of that loss and my massive spring tour at the same time, all while moving in together and sneaking in dates in DC and South Padre. I’m just so grateful for her. I just needed to say that. Upworthy shared this on their site but I wanted to share it here too. I’ve had some really sweet emails from other nurses about how they have a hard time expressing feelings and since I express enough for the two of us, I’m happy to be useful in some way. So many thanks to folks who do the good work. Also, yay black holes.
