even my bad memories, surgery for first fusion and others. yes fusion is a bad memory but i remember funny things to take my mind off of negativity. an example. a guy next to me had a fusion again because he had an infection and they had to clean up and redo. he was upset because he took methadone whereas i had oxy. one day he started to act weird. he told the nurse to watch out for me because i was talking to ducks, specifically donald duck. the nurse came over and said what was going on and i said ask him he is getting weird. then he started to really go off the deep end he said he wanted to go home because demons were after him. then, i swear this is true, he got up took off his clothes, put on his shoes and socks, packed his bag and said i am going home. he walked down the hall in his birthday suit with shoes and socks. he got to the door and the nurses caught him and put him to bed. he started crying and then they called his doctor. the doctor said what was up? the patient said he wanted to go home because he was upset about the demons. they called his poor wife, and then put the poor guy on another med. the next day he wanted to get my number to keep in contact. my wife said no way so i politely said i don't give it out. i feel sorry for the guy's wife and him but it is kind of funny seeing a naked guy walking down the hall with shoes and socks on. a funny memory keeps me laughing and making a negative experience funny. as the old saying goes make lemonade out of lemons. if you have memories, make them positive and or funny and not dwell on negative memories. it does not good to dwell on negativity
