Sometimes we need to share those things that happen in our bedroom at night, namely, the nightmares. Here is my most recent one…
Just got out of the shower and sat on the edge of the bed and got my 70/30 insjection ready. Everything went well until i pulled the needle out. The needle didn't come out. It stayed in my abdomen! I tried and could not locate it. I tried to think of what to do. Decided to get a black magic marker and circle the entry point. Then I thought about how to get to the ER. I was afraid if I drove myself and was in the sitting position that the needle might move. finally, I called 911 and they said they would dispatch an ambulance for transport. 45 minutes later they arrived. (Yes, that is how long it would take them to get there!) So, they transported me to the ER laying down and sent me to XRAY. They saw it on the film. They said the only way to retrieve it was to cut in and get it and that I would need to be fully conscienous. No problem, I passed out when then started and woke up when they were done.
Now why would I have a dream such as this? Well, I am cheaply creative. Can't stand throwing all those perfectly good syringes away, so earlier that day I had taken a few of them and tried to remove the needle so I could use a few of them to apply oil in tight places. Tried as I might, I could not get one loose. Had no trouble doing it in my dream!
