    No I'm not fucking dead, but I almost was.

    Some of you who know me more personally may know that I have a sleep disorder that I take meds for. If I don't take them I generally won't be able to fall asleep in any sort of timely manner, which does have a few benefits. One of the benefits (that ended up as the problem in this case), is that I'm able to work a lot longer work hours than I normally would be able to. My work is all dependent on getting the job done, so hours are basically irrelevant in getting paid.


    Basically, my boss had a ton of renovation projects for people fixing their homes, with Winter being right around the corner and all. Two of the other contractors up and quit, so we've been incredibly shorthanded for the past 2 weeks. I didn't want to let my boss down, so I was taking every single project that came through the door, and putting in anywhere from 16 to 20 hours a day for about 10-12 days straight. In all, I clocked in about 200 hours within a 2 week period. #CashMoney

    Can you guess what happened this afternoon?
    I woke up in the ICU of my local hospital with a fluid drip shoved into god damn arm and at least 4 different doctors standing over me. I thought I could handle it, but apparently I built up so much of a sleep debt that I became exhausted, and reached literal system collapse. From what my work records show, I passed out the morning of the 16th, and I only woke up at about 3PM on the 19th, over 3 days later. My landlord found me unconscious on my kitchen floor and took me to the ER. Whether it was my exhaustion, the withdrawal from my meds, or a weird reaction from my condition, the docs haven't found an answer yet. The huge problem was that I obviously hadn't drank anything for the whole time, and I was severely dehydrated. The nurse told me that all of the skin on my body would stick up when pinched, just like the skin on your knuckle, and they had to IV bag me 4 times in a row.

    Well anyway I'm fine now, just glad to be back to the world of the living, but it's still weird as hell to know that it's the 20th.

    Tl;dr I was unconscious for 3 days and almost died of dehydration.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    The real question is if you were dehydrated that badly what did you try to make in the kitchen when you passed out?

    All that'll be gone once the Steam Winter Sale comes around, I can practically hear all those dollars floating away.

    Yeah, that's what I was partially concerned about. Hospital bills are annoying, but luckily you worked that off ahead of time.

    Nigga even if he drank water at the moment he passed out he would still be dehydrated. He hadn't drank water for 3 days...
