.....but I bet she's the life of the party!

Deborah Peel came in by EMS last night because she overdosed on her prescription medications. She was fairly somnolent, but arousable enough to answer some of our questions. Here's how the first part of her triage went:

Triage Nurse: "Deborah, what did you take?"

Deborah Peel: "Ambien...."

MonkeyGirl (to the other nurse beside me): "So she's gonna be sleepy...."

Deborah Peel: "Phenergan..."

MonkeyGirl: "And she won't be pukin' on us..."

Deborah Peel: "Mirapex..."

MonkeyGirl: "Holy Hell, get the restraints, quick before she starts gambling and having illicit sex!!!!!"

Seriously, if regular doses cause such things to occur, what does an overdose do?!?!?!?!?

I guess she'll be shopping (or gambling) whenever she wakes up...or calling the lawyer to get in on that lawsuit thing.

I don't know, but I OD'd on the stuff, and woke up with my weenis in a slot machine.

At least it wasn't something with acetaminophen in it and have her blow out her liver. Maybe the overdose of ambien and mirapex will have her having gambling, having illicit sex, and eating without memory when she wakes up only to find herself in bed with a couple of boxes of cookies, some snicker's wrappers, some strange person or animal, and a bunch of lotto tickets or chips from a casino.
