    Usually it's a liability issue, when I was in school for EMS and after, they only let people enrolled in an Allied Health program, or other medical program, ride along. Because they were covered by the school's insurance.

    You might try volunteering at a hospital, and getting placed at or near the ER. Heck, the EMTs might even let you help hose out the ambulance...

    My tolerance for seeing pain in others is not very high.

    Mine is pretty high. When others are in great pain, I usually feel nothing.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
