Totally True Tales of the ER by kevinbolk Totally True Tales of the ER by kevinbolk
Read the NEXT "I'm My Own Mascot" here.

Continuing the saga of my recent back injury, I didn't know at this point I actually had disc goo leaking out of the sides of my spine. So naturally, I figured I pulled a muscle and felt like a wuss going to the ER for it. Hence, "Batman: Knightfall" and monster bees.

Next up: DRUGS!

When I first read this, I read that as 'drugged-out labrador'. Makes so much less sense.

could also keep it simple and believable... fell down the stairs, tried lifting a car and had to get your disks realigned so you wouldn't be paralyzed if it fucked up more. i don't need a back brace but i have scoliosis. ive had it since i was a kid. they found it when i was ten because they were doing x rays and finding other things. they also found arthritis, hip displatia and a bunch of other fun stuff. -.- i avoid hospitals. since i have PTSD they wanna check my mind before they check my body. -.- idiots. I used to be on prescription pain pills but i was weaned off of them via my request growing up, because while you get used to pain pills the pain still gets worse with things like that. Because of my pb being an idiot when i was in labor, twice, no not an idiot but because im over weight and have a large chest and PTSD, he decided that since social security lost the records i was full of shit so he wouldn't check. He almost killed me and my sons because my spin isn't simply just curved, its twisted. when they had to put needles in my spine for emergency c section guess what info they didn't have because his dumb-ass didn't take me seriously? thank goodness the doctors otherwise were able to save our lives when the fuck up nearly killed us. epidural for emergency c section, plus it going as a spinal tap... with all due respect i told them at the hospital and they did the best they could with it, with my second son and the first time the anesthesiologist saved our lives after nearly killing us because he was going off of the information he had on paper like he was told to do. the second time they had to keep trying until they got it right which meant fifteen minutes of stabbing sensations all over my body while they found the right spot. -.- their has GOT to be a more humane way of doing that. This was overseen by the OBGYN who was doing the c section after several times of my second son trying to come early and their being distress in me from it and having stopped labor too much. My body was having trouble handling it. anyway, he was the last doctor id recommend to anyone with any type of mental health diagnosis. PTSD is in laments terms, nightmares and flashbacks. a flashback varies but for me, my mind wonders and replays it much like you would replay any memory, only mine have triggers that replay them not because i want them to be but because they were traumatic. Ive had more back pain since than ever before and I have these phantom pains that i know to be nerve damage but i dare not bring it to a doctor... they will just check my head first. oh yeah, another symptom is to avoid sources of trauma. -.- gee i wonder why. anyway, because i have this label people seem to lose their ability to see past that its supposed to mean im sick in a different way as implied by the term illness in "mental illness"... -.- anyway... basically it means i have bad memories and flinch when someone grabs me or things like that... -.- ... and you would think doctors would be less effected by the stigma on mental health diagnosis's... but they are not. -.- Id say be glad its not that and say something more believable like that you fell, just make sure to tell the doctor the truth and that thats what they say to your family as well but that the truth gets told to the doctor and in paperwork, if it means that much to you.

i will. just so that you know. the leviathan of mythology could never and would never be tamed. It would be like taming the moon, or stopping the colors of an auroraborialis. :)

Well, that's why Fiction is called Fiction. Rules, Standards, and the Laws of Nature are outright obliterated when it comes to Fiction. After all, in Fiction, Gods can die.
