The Crash

Chapter 1

Life Sucks

Beep, Beep, Beep… “What the hell is that damn beeping?” Mike said, as he awoke from his sleep. His head pounded as he strained to get his eyes to focus. Slowly a room came into view and he wondered where he was at. He was glancing around his surroundings while in a somewhat dazed state. He challenged his brain to think through the pounding in his skull. The room was lime green and there was a familiar smell in the air. One of first things he saw was a pair of heavy leather wrist restraints applied to both of his wrist and a bandage on his left forearm. The bandaged area on his forearm was soaked through in dried blood and there was a dull pain coming from the area. In his right upper forearm he saw an IV protruding from the bend in his arm. Following the IV line up over his head to the right he saw a half empty bag with a clear yellow colored fluid in it. “Ah, what did they call that kind of bag?” he thought to himself and then it came to him “a banana bag.” Some nurse had once been told him that it had vitamins in it to help prevent brain damage in alcoholics. He then turned his attention to that annoying beeping sound that coming from the left side of his pounding head. Mounted over his head was a small television screen of a heart monitor and the beeps were just his own heartbeats. No doubt about it, he was in a hospital room.

As Mike became more aware of his surroundings he was now faced with a sudden urgency. He fought the leather wrist restraints to no avail and then started to call out for help. At the foot of his bed was a large wall of glass with a closed sliding door. The drapes on the windows were opened all the way. He saw hospital staff hurrying past his room while paying little attention to Mike who was slowly getting more frantic. Other people who were most likely patients or family slowed down their pace as they walked past Mike's room. They stared at him as if he was some kind of freak show exhibit. “I have to piss!!” Mike shouted out. A male staff member in scrubs came stomping into the room and pulled the curtain to the room closed. He pulled a plastic urinal jug out of a rolling cabinet in the corner of the room. The man pulled back Mikes blanket, lifted his gown and put his penis in the opening of the urinal. The staff member held the urinal and then stated “You can go now.” Mike looked at the staff member puzzled and then said “Can you untie my wrist so that I can do this myself?” The staff member stated that he was just an emergency room technician and needed the ok from the doctor or nurse to remove the restraints. The tech then said that they were very busy in the ER today, going on to say “This is the best I can do; at least they didn’t stick a foley catheter in your penis this time.” Mike thought at least that was true and started to piss into the jug. When he finished he asked the tech to send the doc or nurse in to see him.
