So Day 58 was NOT a good day! Actually it was a complete nightmare! For all the ladies out there please listen to this and please be cautious when you are out and about especially over this holiday weekend......
It started out nice enough, woke up early with my little man, took him shopping for some last minute christmas gifts and some food for the party that DH and I where attending later in the evening and spent the whole morn. just running errands and spending time with him. In the afternoon the DH took him to my moms house while I got ready for the party and than we attended some close friends first annual christmas party, it was actually very relaxing and nice just to hang out with friends and relax. After the party a few of us decided to head out the the bar and hang out a little since DH and I had a sitter we figured Why not! My sister in law and her man where there and so was DH and my brother in law, everything was nice and I really enjoyed myself... and that's where the happy ends!
Flash forward Sunday morning, I wake up on my brother in laws couch and my body is throbbing. I rolled over and saw my brother in law sitting on the other couch and I'm like why am I so sore and he says you dont remember last night? You dont remember being in the emergency room or me caring you out of the bar? WOW! Stop right there now I'm really freaked out at this point, I have bruises all over my arms and my legs what the hell! So to make a long story short someone put something in my drink at the bar. After my husband left someone must have thought that I was alone and saw a chance when I went to the bathroom and bam my ass is down! If it wasn't for my brother in law being there with me I dont know what would have happened and I spent all Sunday morning crying hysterically just thinking about it! What kind of person does this to someone? My brother in law said that he had to carry me out of the bar and since I'm bigger than he is it was extremely hard and so I spent alot of the time on the sidewalk and I even hit my head when I passed out in the bar. Everyone thought I was wasted but I knew that I wasn't, when I woke up in the morning I kept saying I wasn't drunk I wasn't drunk and when I checked my tab from the bar it was only ten dollars. Now I drink alot and I know that ten dollars worth of beer will not make me pass out and lose time like that. My DH took me to the ER and they confirmed it. Please ladies take this as a warning that this can happen to anyone! I am in some huge pain as I still am bruised all over and it feels like I took a beating but DH said that I pretty much did from all the falling down. I felt like such an asshole that my brother in law had to deal with all that but I am so grateful that he was there and that no one took me off somewhere! DH said that it was like I was unconscious but with my eyes open and looking at him. I couldnt talk and I barely remember being in the ER and the doctor trying to talk to me, I threw up a few times while I was unconscious and DH had to sit me up so I wouldnt choke and die! My brother in law had to carry me in his house and they had to help me to take a shower and wash my hair because I had fallen on the cement so many times and gotten sick.
Apparently from what my brother in law tells me(everything went black for me and I dont remember anything past when my DH left) the bar tenders just thought I was wasted and wanted to call the cops on me because I was passed out in the middle of the bar, lucky for me he knows the bouncers and so one of them helped him to get me outside where I proceeded to fall on the cement a few more times while he struggled to hold me up (in the rain btw) until DH got there. At that point they took me to their moms house (my mother in law) where her husband looked at me (hes a retired sheriff) and said that I needed to be taken to the hospital ASAP because I started foaming at the mouth and I my breathing was irregular.
SO needless to say I am still in alot of pain this AM but am very grateful that I am only dealing with bruises and not something worse! It makes me so mad to think that someone would do this to a complete stranger! I spent most of yesterday crying because I couldnt believe what had happened. I asked my brother in law over and over if I was ever alone or gone for a long period of time but he says that I wasn't so that makes me feel a little bit better. I never left my drink alone but for a second to go to the bathroom and even still my brother in law was right there with it except when he would go to take his shot at the pool table.
This whole experience has really but perspective on alot of things for me. This is why I have decided that I will not have another sip of alcohol and If I do it wont be until May for my birthday. I am a control freak and the fact that I had no control over anything that I did that night scares the hell out of me. I know I wasn't drunk and I know that it wasn't my fault but just something about it makes me not want to drink anymore. I will def. not be going out by myself (actually without a man I can trust) again. Please just use my story as a warning and please be careful when your out there.
