Thank you so much Verkiter. Congrats on a full recovery.
I have followed some of the earlier links, and I think things will get better.
I also went through that emotional stage....still do. Everything seems more beautiful, enjoyable, and awesome afterwards. Possibly it has to do with the Subconscious mind knowing that you have actually died on the table. The heart is stopped, the body cooled, the head packed in ice, and the machine takes over. Then you are re-animated with electric shock. (I had scorch marks on my back)
That was not the worst. For me it was the learner nurse who pulled out my urethral catheter as if she was starting an old outboard motor. Then after my eyes cleared she was looking at the balloon on the end, and saying, "Hmmm that's not supposed to be like that"
Now every time I go pee, it sprays out like garden sprinkler. I have the name of a specialist. He is not a urologist, he plays a sax in a band, perhaps he can show me how to hold it properly.
Ok so bring on the wind....
