The Antidote for Pity Parties

Combat mission
I was ankle deep in self-pity over various moving dilemmas when I checked out the Netflix documentary series “Inside Combat Rescue.” Six episodes cover front-line helicopter medics in Afghanistan. Talk about sobering and tension-filled. Watching these teams swoop in, pick up wounded—sometimes in active combat zones–and then transport them to NATO or Afghan hospitals while doing triage in mid-air proved a riveting experience. Viewers learn these guys’ personal stories, too. This series isn’t for the squeamish, but by the sixth episode, my moving-related angst vanished. I recommend it to anyone who starts taking themselves too seriously. Including me.
