It Took a Lot Out of Me

Once when I was working, this really huge man got choked on a peanut butter sandwich.  I initiated CPR and a colleague assisted.  We worked on this man until the Paramedics got there and relieved us.  They told me that if we hadn't of performed the CPR, he wouldn't have made it.  It took so much out of me, that after they took him to the hospital (for observation) I locked myself in a room and cried for about 30 minutes.  I was so scared.

That has to be an intense situation. I have taken CPR several times and often wonder how I would react in a similar situation. Happy to hear the person lived!
