I see absolutely everything!

Yes, I know everyone thinks I am under sedation and my eyelids  are mostly closed, but I am unresponsive. Therefore, they began with the operation.

My heart pounds in my ears louder than a ten piece drum set. I desperately struggle to open my mouth, move my legs, arms, hands, anything to get their attention! My fight to alert them is completely useless.

The doctor stands there with the surgical tool in his hand while the others silently stand by waiting to assist him with the operation.

I feel I am about to die from horrific fear and the most agonizing pain imaginable.

Wait! I see,  through blurred eyes, one of them pointing out the flood of tears washing down my face!

  1. Oh my gosh that would be frightening! To be about to go under the knife and you are not under. I cannot even try to imagine! (I know how much it hurts when you wake up from an operation and I sure wouldn’t want to be awake during the operation!) Great story Jessie!


    • Thank you so much. This was not an actual story of someone I know, however, there was a guy that was operated on sometime back that this actually happened to…it was on the news. Our oldest son is very concerned that he could be in this type of situation one day….he has a very difficult time of whenever he has work done on his teeth…he has to be given twice as much medication than what is usually called for.

      • It’s horrible to think of someone having to go through that. I don’t blame your son for having that fear, everyone should have a little bit of that fear. Thankfully, it has never happened to me. I have been in the dentist when they started work and I wasn’t deadened enough. I made them stop real fast. Haha! So I understand your son’s concern.


  2. Thank you so much. Dreams can be really scary and seem so real. I’ve had some that were so bad I was so grateful when I woke up and realized it was a bad dream and just laid there feeling so relieved that I woke up and the dream was gone!
