You may think you’ve had some odd experiences (especially if you’ve had VISITOR experiences), but I think something that happened to me is right up there at the top.
I woke up to find several faces peering down at me, asking me questions like, "What’s your name?" "What date is it today?" "Who’s the President?," and I COULDN’T THINK OF THE ANSWERS!
I often can’t remember the date, but I DO know my name (and Obama’s too).
I was in an ambulance, being whisked to the hospital, after having had a seizure. It turned out this as set off by a certain type of prescription cough medicine I had taken for the hacking cough that was keeping me awake all night.
I believe in good doctoring, and I’ve been to see a neurologist and will soon have some tests, but everyone agrees it was the cough medicine that did it. It could be that I’m particularly sensitive to it.
Whatever, it caused me to bite the he– out of my tongue. You don’t realize how much you use that organ until it’s too sore to function anymore.
I also flipped my feet around so much during my gyrations that I now have a limp (I’m going to see a doctor about THAT too!)
Poor Whitley was woken up by a scrunching sound, and looked over to see my eyes rolled back into my head and my limbs jerking uncontrollably. He didn’t fool around: He called EMS.
I’m not going to "throw the baby out with the bathwater" (does anyone still use this phrase?) and forgo prescription medicines, which can be lifesaving, but I AM going to avoid this type of medicine in the future.
In the meantime, I’m limping around and subsisting on soft foods.
