Going To The Emergency Room Dressed As An Inmate

On my way out I heard a man say, "Her shirt says State Inmate on it." I figured he was referencing me, so I turned around. I saw he was standing outside an room at the e.r. I was at. He looked like a guard. My guess is he was guarding an actual inmate. I was simply in an inmate get up. I was supposed to have gone dressed up to a Halloween party. I missed it though. I ended up having a cvs episode and going to the emergency room.

My doctor laughed about my handcuffs before he gave the order to the nurse to insert an Iv. Into me and give me intravenous Zofran and Benadryl.

Sure, I missed a really awesome party. Sure, I missed going dressed up. However, my emergency room visit was so wonderful.

I walked right in and told them I have cvs. They handed me a puke bag and got me into a bed right away.

In my experience, hospital beds are super comfy at first. They don't start getting uncomfortable until you're feeling better. That way you'll want to leave. I swear there's a science to it.

I remember earlier that day thinking I was coming down with an episode. I prayed that I wouldn't get one. It was then I heard a voice say, "You never know who you will meet when you go there."

And I did meet someone. I met an amazing nurse who had his own journey to wellness. Thank you so much for helping me.

To this day, I still go to the hospital when I start having an episode. However, I only have an episode occasionally. I am so grateful for this.

Happy Halloween :)
