Hospital following an OD: Day 1August 2010

I’m a bit confused about the ‘191 pictures’ though, surely I haven’t posted that many pictures on this blog? *Shrugs.*

And because they’re amusing, here are some search terms people have used to arrive at this blog;

–  ‘how to survive with a cluster b’ : Best ask Dr T, she’ll tell you how to do it…
–  ‘tara palmatier silent treatment’ : One of Dr T’s solutions for the search term above?
– ‘ how doctors stop someone from peeing in hospital bed’ : A catheter perhaps? Random!
–  ‘do energy drinks help people with mental issues’ : Interesting idea that one, I must try! Who knows, I may find myself cured…
–  ‘mentally insane person behind glass’ : Err yep, that’s me….
–  ‘the psychiatrist makes me cry’ : You’re not the only one.
–  ‘do psychiatrists watch you in the waiting room’ : Do they?! You’re making me paranoid now…
–  ‘lady in asia has a growth disease and cant stop growin then they try to put her in an ambulance but she can’t fit’ : That one’s really random.
–  ‘why my psychiatrist does not reconise me when i meet outside the office’ : Because psychiatrists cannot see past your diagnosis and the $300 an hour you make them, clearly.
– ‘ website for insane people’ : Totally what my blog is.
