Girly goes Kafka
So my shaman says I need to go into a 3-day treatment program to eliminate the alcohol because it is preventing his concoctions from working. I say, "I'm game. Let's give it a go." So I go in yesterday around 1500 and a nice physician's assistant checks me in, an excellent phlebotomist takes my blood, and then a pleasant armed security guard watches me change into a blue-is-the-new-orange flattering attire and leads me into a room which locks behind me and some nurse starts yelling at me about some red line on the floor "YOU'RE NOT LISTENING TO ME." "RED LINE. DO NOT CROSS. GOT IT. I REQUIRE NO FURTHER INSTRUCTION." Way to treat me like an idiot right out of the box fucking asshole.

And then things went downhill. Witch Doctor told me to check in with an BAC at least >0.08. pfffft, that's just lunch time for me and I went in with an BAC of 0.28. Pretty much my cruising altitude. I give them a list of all my medications. I need my Seroquel and Trazodone to sleep. I spend an hour or 2 jibberjabbing with the other drunks and bothering the staff and another 3 hours staring at a blank beige on beige wall. I can work with white on white but I can't live with beige on beige without some lysergic acid diethylamide or psilocybin support. Around 2130 I was stone cold sober and realized I was gonna be staring at that fucking blank wall stone cold sober for another 12 hours. Girly's fucking outta here. Dudes didn't know what to make of that. "The doctor has to release you." The fuck she does I'm about to go all illegal detention all over your ass. Release was suddenly authorized.

This is not the proper way to detox people by treating them like criminals. This is not the way Suburban Hospital detoxed ManlyGirl. In the 9 hours I was there I never saw a single doctor.

I guess I learned how we treat drunks. I left feeling like a useless piece of shit having to plead my own freedom. .... fucking assholes. ... yeah, that helped my treatment a lot. ... fucking assholes.

I got to visit a similar place several years ago. They weren't the hardass types but they gave so many drugs that I was more loaded than when I got there.

Holy fuck.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Girly goes Kafka
Tell your shaman what happened, tell your shaman that the place is unacceptable, and tell your shaman to find a different place.

Or get a new shaman.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That does suck. Addiction and recovery is difficult enough without the shaming.

There was an eye in the sky. Shaman knows what happened. .... What pissed me off the most? "We're only keeping you here until your BAC is 0." Yabut my BAC is already 0 and you fuckers ain't checked it yet after 8 hours and you ain't checking it again for another 12 hours. I'm going home. ... fucking assholes. You don't give a shit if my BAC is 0. You fuckers don't a shit about me at all. .... fucking assholes.
....
Girly went home.

Without knowing much about your situation I will say something obvious that I do know first hand for certain:

Alcoholism is brutal.

Shit brotherman, sorry you had to deal with that. Next time dump the shaman and go with a Bokor, but make sure he ain’t lacing your meds with detrodotoxin powder from dessicated pufferfish.

This from one of our talks...
