about

From my journal:
Sunday, March 11, 2020
Four days ago I had to go to the hospital. I had severe pain in my lower abdomen that started as a dull ache and within 30 minutes became unbearable. Janet and I thought it might be my appendix, so she rushed me to the emergency room, where I waited for over an hour for anyone to even talk to me, then we finally got a room and waited another hour or so and, in the meantime, I found that the horribly searing pain went away if I kneeled by the bed. First the nurse came in and prepped me. Time went by. The Doctor came in and asked a bunch of questions, then prescribed a pain medication. More time went by. I had a CAT Scan. Time went by. Then, after the pain was nearly gone, the nurse came in and put the drug into the IV that had already been inserted into my arm and said it would kick in in about 3 minutes. I’d say 5 to 10 minutes after she left, I felt the shit coursing through my veins and knew I was in for a ride, so as an overwhelming sensation and dizziness rushed over me, I clambered up on the bed, fell back, and had one of the most frightening experiences of my life. I went blind. I felt like my face was sagging, melting. I couldn’t tell if I was up or down. I turned inside out. Like the exterior world and my body had been put on a taffy stretcher. Or a child folding the universe like it was silly putty, over and over. I gripped Janet’s hand, and she kept talking to me, which barely kept me sane. I thought I was having a lethal reaction to the medicine, and that I might never recover. I was saying things like “If this is death, it’s a fucking joke”. I felt for Janet’s face but couldn’t see anything but smearing, swirling colors. I could hear her voice, but it was distant, like we were in a room with huge loud machines. I would completely leave this dimension for a few moments and then come back, like going up and down on huge ocean waves in a row boat. It seemed like forever. (Janet later told me it all lasted about 15 minutes.). When I started to come out of it, it wasn’t like I was calmly floating down, but more like I’d been nearly drowning in the murky depths of a cursed lake, swimming for my life, and finally saw the sun shining through the surface. Then, like a race car’s head lamps zooming toward me out of the darkness. Shazam! I was back, but when I first came out of it, I had no idea where I was. The nurse didn’t warn me of any side effects. Through the entire experience, I really thought I might be having a lethal reaction to the drug, and It was all incredibly terrifying. I can’t imagine going through that experience alone, without someone close being there. Anyway, turns out it was a kidney stone, that I passed while I was at the hospital, so they sent me home. We got to the hospital at 6pm and left at 6am. The Drug was Ketamine.

lyrics

She made me a prescription
The IV nurse was stuck on
A plastic bag was in her hand

Some killing pain medicine
In three minutes will begin
I am so grateful you are
Waiting with me now
I’ll get back to you some how

The rush was unexpected
I felt my face had melted
Wide opened eyes completely blind

My body swirled and blended
You spoke and kept me grounded
I am so grateful you are
Waiting with me now
I’ll get back to you some how
But I can’t tell up from down
And my mind’s turned inside out

My vision finally returned
I’m feeling so much better
I’m feeling so much better now

Don’t give me that drug again
I don’t want that shit again
I am so grateful you are
Waiting with me now
I’ll get back to you some how
I’ll get back to you some how
