My ex and I were watching a documentary about Bill Gates one night when the power went out. I was lying on the floor and he was lying on the couch. When the lights went out, we simply didn't move and dropped right off...

... only to be rudely awakened three hours later when all the lights blazed on and the TV, which had a weird quirk about sound, blared ON AT FULL VOLUME!!!

Took 10 years off my life, I swear.

This is why I refuse Versed. But I had surgery today and the anesthesiologist was fine with my refusal of the Versed. Of course, I don't freak out in the OR, either, which helps.

Now on percoset, which I am taking because this sumb!++* hurts!

I have no work scheduled for this morning. So, I will do some billing, drop off the CDs that I transcribed, possibly pick up some new work, definitely pick up some checks. Then I will come home and work on some game publishing material. This evening, it's the nanny job.

See Patrick? You're not the only one with a hodgepodge of support endeavors. ;)

Thats multipurpose. It isn't JUST for inducing the amnesia. being on the heavy side of sleep kills the pain while it's happening.

Yes, that's true. I never said it's solely for amnesia. What I'm saying is that there are other substances that don't cause amnesia that they will use upon request, so you can remember. They default to amnesics without informing us. This bothers me.

I'm talking about twilight anesthesia, in which drugs are given to deliberately prevent the formation of new memories during medical procedures. Pretty handy for practitioners, isn't it? And yes, it's deliberate. I have requested they skip the Versed, and I remember those procedures. This totally creeps me out. Call me paranoid.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

You will note I qualified "deprived of memory" with "deliberately by another person". If you ignore parts of a statement, you're not really replying to/refuting the statement.

I went through a surgery with a local anesthetic and was surprised that I couldn't remember it. When I asked why, the anesthesiologist told me about amnesic drugs that they use routinely at the end of procedures done under local so patients don't remember the discomfort during the procedure. These were not disclosed in advance, nor was permission granted to use them. They have to tell you every little possible outcome of the surgery, but not that they're going to wipe your memory. I find this violating and horrifying. In subsequent surgeries, I have requested they omit the amnesic, and they have done so. So yes, I remember hurting during surgery, I remember having teeth chiseled out of my jaw, and I just don't care. Those are my memories and it's my choice to keep them.

You're welcome to take amnesics. They are not for me.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I can't speak for UAE, but being deprived of memory deliberately by another person is a violation of my innermost being. I find it offensive and rather horrifying.

The only place I learned European history was in French class, where we learned French history in French. US history education is pretty sad.

You might be surprised at your typing speed. I was without use of my left index finger for a couple months, and found I could type at 75-80% of normal speed (which is usually about 85 to 90 wpm). You may be able to work around it, keeping the finger in a splint so you don't find yourself moving it involuntarily.

I can type fairly well for a while, then - because the ring finger is being held straight - my middle and pinkie fingers lock up and won't bend. My accuracy is terrible. I think having the finger gone would be better than having it there and splinted.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking is a wonder, though. I have found a way to have it automatically transcribe the audio files I've been working on. I have to go behind and punctuate it, but that's only one listen through the file for me instead of the usual 3. AND, I can correct and punctuate the bulk of it with Dragon. So it will boost my throughput.

Realize, too, that the initial injury was not only to my ring finger, but it also strained the neighbor fingers and two fingers on my right hand. I was miserable typing for a while. Now I have muddled along with this entire post without much trouble!

Aaaaaand... coffee is ready! Woo!

Go Monkey!!

I slept for 8 hours. I have coffee. I have an appointment to get my (9) nails done and am going to ask if they can wash my freaking hair because I can't do it well. I have a gift card for a department store and may get my first brand new clothes in a year or so.

It's going to be a good day.

Amby:
Honestly, it's not that bad. The surgeon who can do it right away will be happy to do the work for twice the standard price according to the healthcare bluebook. Also he gets one star on Yelp reviews, while the surgeon I'm waiting to see is a consulting surgeon for the Rockies and Broncos. I prefer in the orthopedic groups that treat the professional sports teams because there's typically nobody better. The owners take care of their assets as long as their assets are still making money for them, right?

If I end up with a frozen DIP joint, it'll hardly be noticeable. It doesn't hurt that much now and I just want them to be certain it doesn't hurt in the long run, as much as I use my hands. The splint is TOTALLY in the way for everything, but I spent 90 whole dollars on Dragon transcription software and can now function pretty darned well at work. It's not too bad using hunt and peck to edit text while Dragon does the bulk of the work for me. I may end up making more money per hour on my transcription work, which is flat-fee, because Dragon accelerates the process so much. And really, I've got insurance. I shouldn't need to do fundraising, right? So I'm chill. It'll get fixed somehow, someday. I'm not climbing the walls about it any more.

I'm a strong INTP as well, and I small towns make me twitchy. I lived in an apartment in a very small town for a couple of years. Every time I stopped in a store, people wanted to talk to me - who am I, where am I living, where am I from, where do I work. My neighbors were always sitting outside and checking on where I'd been and why I didn't come home last night and who I had been with. When I changed a tire on my new car (because I had never changed a tire and wanted to do it where it was safe), they all came out and watched me and commented. "Pretty girl like you don't need to be changing tires. You can get a man to do it." Everybody always up in my business. It was a nightmare.

Living in the city, my neighbors only cared that I didn't make noise. Nobody cared if I came home at 6 pm or 3 am. Any time I got a wild hair, I could hop the El and go to the symphony or opera or art museum or library and see and hear the best things humanity has to offer. Nobody bothered me. Nobody struck up idle conversations. Clerks at stores didn't give a rat's ass about who I was or where I was from. There was generic hassle from guys, but you get that anywhere. It was heaven.

You're never more alone than in a crowd in the middle of the city.

I like the anonymity of cities. You can be dead there for years and nobody would know it, not even neighbors. That's very comforting.

So this all started because there was a drink on the cocktail menu at Lovecraft with some fanciful name that was described as "whiskey, with sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters". I asked the waitress "So, what's the difference between that and a Manhattan" and she said "Yeah, it's a Manhattan, although I like that you know your cocktail recipes". So even the bar is betting we don't know what a Manhattan is :)
it's like someone telling me a two wheeled terrestrial vehicle operated by manual footpedals is a starhopper.
