It's not every day that we come across some good-hearted souls who show concern even towards strangers. But the job of paramedics seems quite emotionally demanding and those workers are often worried about their patients' wellbeing. Recently, a young woman named Angelina, who goes by @angmcmahon on TikTok, shared a few wholesome text messages she received from the first responders after she faced a terrible accident two years ago. After taking care of her on the way to the hospital, the paramedics checked up on her while she was recovering in the hospital and this deeply moved the internet.

Reminiscing the time of her accident and recovery, Angelina shared screenshots of messages from her well-wishers. The first message was from a first responder who treated the woman at the accident scene before she was flown out to the hospital. "Going to be honest. A lot of us are still thinking about you all and hope you are recovering," the kind paramedic said. "Some calls bother us even after they are over and yours was one of them," they added. 

She shared another empathetic text message from a paramedic named Wayne who accompanied Angelina in the ambulance. "I have received a few updates since that day but was wondering how things are going for all of you," the message read. They also added that they wished to let other volunteers know about Angelina's recovery. It was because paramedics were often keen on knowing how their patients turned out. So the genuine concern in these kind-hearted messages made the woman "cry every time she read them."

With over 5.7 million views in a few weeks, this post left the internet pretty emotional. "My husband is a paramedic, and I’m a trauma therapist for first responders. They need to hear their work worked," explained @spicysalmonmaki17. "As an EMT, I can assure you that we think about our patients long after a call and hope they're doing ok," chimed in @selenagorsky. "That’s so sweet of them to check up on you," said @_laurenrosee1.

It's not easy to be fit as a fiddle one day and have your fate completely changed the next. It was text messages from thoughtful people like the aforementioned paramedics that served as a beacon of light in Angelina's life. In a video from last year, the woman shared how traumatic it was to start living a new life as a paralyzed person. With tearful eyes, Angelina mentioned, "Realizing that getting paralyzed isn't a silly joke anymore and my life is forever changed and I have to learn how to live a totally different life than I did before my accident."

Angelina shared another video of her inspiring journey of recovery from the horrendous accident that left her paralyzed. In August 2022, the woman was a passenger in a car that met with an accident and she had to be airlifted to the hospital. For three months, Angelina had to be in the hospital where she underwent surgeries and treatments. The accident caused her to be too reliant on someone to do even the basic everyday activities. However, she chose to bolster herself with courage and after months of rehabilitation, she is now an independent person. Accepting this harsh reality made Angelina realize how precious life was and she also identified some of the truest friends she had.
