Well, they didn’t see Crohn’s on the colonoscopy or the endoscopy so I have to do the “fantastic voyage” test. I have to swallow a pill that contains a camera and photographs my entire digestive system over the course of 8 hours. Cool, huh?
Anyway, they did knock me out for those tests, and they did give me that drug which makes you announce whatever your inner feelings are. Some people have told me they cry, other people have told me they cussed their mothers or confessed to committing a crime.
Wanna know what I said under the influence?
I begged for phenergan.
Yes, that’s right. My fear of vomiting and my constant nausea are SO everpresent that even while under the influence of truth serum I begged for anti-nausea medication.
The trouble was that they’d already given me some in my IV and I didn’t believe them. I imagine it was quite,er, comical. Or sad.
