My most embarrassingly entertaining memory from my GBS ordeal
Some of this memory is jumbled so I might be combining several memories…
My mom and sister were in the room when I was at the hospital and we were practicing on trying to stand or at least moving around. Then I suddenly noticed something brown on the bed.
Oh god. My heart sank to the bottom of my stomach.
I just crapped myself. In front of my sister and mom.
I think there was a nurse in the room. Everything is very foggy for me to remember, I just remember feeling the embarrassment and shame creeping across my face and then the world was kind of swirly and I couldn’t keep track of where it was on the bed.
It wasn't just the embarassment of having gone on the bed, it was the fact i never even felt it!
Damn this stupid body, get back to working!!! My cheeks were probably red tomatoes.
Hehe, so there I am freaking out thinking I am sitting in my own crap and eventually my sis and the nurse calm me down I guess. I don't really remember anything else.
Evidently the feeding tube had come undone and dripped onto the bed.
I think I found that out pretty recently, like only a month or two ago; ya know, 3 years later I find out I didn’t really crap myself in front of my sister.
Heheh, so now people can start to tell what a prideful and vain person I am.
Hospitals really have no room for shame and pride. :)
