I am the Manic Biomechanic, but my parents named me Andrick. I am a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant; my world is needles, and blood. Children hate me, for I am the man who keeps Mr. Pain in his pocket. I am also a Certified Phlebotomy Technician and a Certified Electrocardiogram Technician. I am a hardcore healthcare geek, and am constantly studying both my trade and the human machine. I live in Seattle, The 12th Empire. I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa. I also have a mental illness, which sometimes helps in this field. I am the one you see before the physician. I am the one who peeks under the hood, sees the engine running, and directs your care from there. I am the one who runs to both the living and the dying. And so I exist in this wasteland; a man reduced to a single instinct: heal. This blog, then, is about what I’ve found. Have a great day!
