Bad Nightmare

Post  micheletroyer on Sun Dec 21, 2014 3:11 am

Just had a really bad dream that I was partially admitted to the hospital (Not ER, Not a room).  Was vomiting, had a 20/10 headache and all they would give me was a drug called "Genesis" which they gave in my IV and it promptly made me pass out.  They accused me of faking.  Then they tried to give me Depakote, which makes me very dizzy even in small doses, and does nothing.  Despite my telling them I had severe nausea, they insisted on piling all sorts of smelly foods on my tray, and wouldn't give me promethazine when I asked for it.

In the end, after I refused the Depakote, they sent me to "Boy's Camp", which was a prison, where again, I got no pain meds.

I got the doctor's name, but promptly forgot it and he was the most unsympathetic, uncaring and insensitive person, insisting on shining his little light into my migraine eyes.  Oh yeah, and all the while, there was a percussion band playing in the room as loud as possible.

When I got to Boy's Camp, they told me I'd be there for at least 10 weeks and that I had to find a job to pay my rent there (I'm on disability due to the Ms and some other stuff).  That's when I woke up in a cold sweat with a 10 migraine.  

At the hospital, they even gave my room to someone else who played cello or bass and was not the least bit sick.  Later, they said that was a joke and I yelled at them for being *ssholes.  My parents were there, and they would not support me, they just went along with the medical staff's ideas and told them I had been sleeping quite normally for some time.  I have severe insomnia and was certainly not asleep with the M banging on the inside of my head and the drum band on the outside.  When I decided to just leave, my parents drove off in their little Toyota Prius and left me to be taken to jail for having a damned migraine.

I even tried to get the dr. to call my neuro, who allows me pain meds within certain limits and all the anti-nausea meds I need/want.  Of course, the doc refused.  I was treated like a criminal.

I'm still shaking and almost in tears.  Will have to stick this mig out until 6 because I'm maxed out on meds.  I swear I will NEVER EVER go to another ER.
