OK here goes:)
The 123 MeMe (tagged by Indigo a/k/a Thistle, Halo, Willow, Ashen and fellow bell ringer)
Ok, so I think I’m supposed to take a random book down off the shelf (presupposes I read, LOL), go to page 123 and read the first three lines of the first full paragraph?? Or something like that. Well here goes:
The book is DSM-IV Made Easy (RIGHT!!!- my comment) by James Morrison, M.D.
Page 123 describes 292.89 Phencyclidine (PCP) intoxication:
Criteria for Phencyclidine Intoxication
The patient has recently used PCP or a related substance During or shortly after its use, the patient develops clinically important behavioral or psychological changes that are maladaptive. These may include assault, belligerence, impulsivity, agitation, unpredictability, impaired judgment, and importe work or social functioning. Within an hour of use (less, if PCP is snorted, smoked or injected), the patient develops two or more of these: Nystagmus* Rapid heartbeat or high blood pressure Numbness or decreased response to pain Trouble walking Trouble speaking Rigidmuscles Coma or seizures Abnormally acute hearing
(Wonder which comes first – the coma or the abnormally acute hearing?) *nystagmus = eyes moving rapidly back and forth or around
Gee – learn something new every day, don’t ya? Cannot imagine how anyone can resist such an attractive drug!
More on the wedding and catching up tomorrow! But just to give you an idea of how weird my world has been, I’ve added a few pics… Why? Well, it is a unique thing for my linen closet to be neat, for the playroom to be decent and a calculator to be on a large white ball.
Beyond that…don’t ask!
