I am stuck at home - no driving privileges until I get the okay from my doctors. I am stir crazy. I have an appointment with a therapist on Monday, an appointment with the dentist on Wednesday (I chewed two teeth loose on the breathing tube while comatose and an oral surgeon extracted them), and an appointment with the cardiologist on Thursday (I was diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson's White Syndrome - which is the ongoing hypothesis as to what put me into a coma in the first place). Getting out should help some with the boredom, but I can still think of other ways I'd rather spend my time. I actually miss work and my kids. I know - crazy!
In the hospital I had what they call ICU Psychosis... ie Delirium. Mine wasn't so distressing as it was bizarre. While unconscious, I heard a lot of what people said around me, but my brain wasn't working correctly and misinterpreted just about everything. This continued after I began waking up. I lived through delusion after hallucination after delusion. I could fill several pages detailing the weird stories I had in my head. Even now, I start thinking on something that happened in the hospital and then have to ask if it really happened or not. Usually, it didn't. It is amazing what can happen to your mind when the electrical signals are misfiring.
The last therapist came Thursday and gave me the same exact cognitive test that was given to Trump. I think I know what it feels like to be in 2nd grade again.
A couple of months back, I bought a Wii on Facebook for $20. It came with four wiimotes, two nunchucks, four steering wheels, four wii-motion plus attachments, the wii, all hook-ups, and about 10 games. I thought it was quite a deal. I don't play games very much - no one to play with - and hadn't ever taken time to hook it up until I got home from the hospital. As it turns out, Nintendo closed the store on the day that I went into a coma, so I was unable to obtain any of the wiiware. So, I decided to softmod it and use it for emulation. Well, now I have a machine full of games I won't play. Hahaha!
Before the hospital, I backed NESMaker on Kickstarter. I am a somewhat poor person and only contributed enough to obtain the software when it comes out in August. Now I am seeing a lot of what people are making and wishing I had paid enough to partake in the beta testing. When I finally get the software, I probably won't have much time to make games because I'll be heading back to school.
