I need some advise or any ideas about a future in EMS. About 5 years ago I got a DUI and effectively ended my career with Guilford County EMS. It was the worst mistake I have EVER made and have since payed dearly. Being a paramedic is the ONLY dream I have ever wanted to accomplish. I was great at my job and possessed enormous potential. My question is: can I ever work within the EMS arena again. I have learned from my mistake and it is a mistake I will never make again. Not being able to serve as a medic is like living without my arms. People make mistakes....I just wonder if they must suffer a lifetime of punishment. Any advise or helpful words would be greatly appreciated.
