Hoffy in the Hospital
« on: October 18, 2017, 04:03:33 AM »
So I have mentioned several times I had night terrors. Pretty severe. well the worse thing happened two night ago.

I jumped through my window during one. I have four major lacerations, two on each one, one of them just missing a major artery, I lost just under a litre of blood.
 I made my wayinside and layed on the floor while our tenant kept pressure on the major wound. I saw them later, skin hanging off and fat tissie
I have no idea how much damage is done, they took a cat scan and said they couldn't see anything troubling. I have been waiting for surgery for two days. Hopefully it will be done in about eight hours.

I'm absolutely terrified. I just needed to vent

Crap Hof! Hope you get better soon. Is there anything you can get/do to reduce the night terrors? Never heard of them being that bad.

On phone and zonked on oxycontin. Forgive the weird spelling.

Don't know, the only guess we have is not playing or wtching intense things before bed. It's so buggered sas watxhing Gates motel that night.

Damn that is rough. I hope they get you fixed up soon.


I don't know much about night terrors but I assume that the episodes only last a few minutes. AFA next time, can you move something in front of your window to keep you from easily jumping through it until you regain awareness of your surroundings? A heavy piece of furniture maybe?

for the sake of trying to find a bright side in all of this - at least you don't live on the 28th floor of a building.

I had no idea adults could have night terrors. My 4 year old has had them. They are terrifying.

Get well soon.

I didn't until Hof mentioned them a while back.  Totally nuts.

My older daughter had night terrors when she was younger. We cured them by taking her to the bathroom before they hit...they would come every night at the same time, around midnight. Took us 18 months to solve that problem. I have a sister who also had them as an adult. If you would like, Hof, I can ask her how she deals with them. I know she is on some kind of anti-depressants but not sure which or how much.
