Some of the bruising I received during my DKA recovery in ICU... 6 canulars and 13 needles later.

It took a good few months of carefully discussing the event with my boyfriend before he opened up enough to tell me in full how it went from his perspective. For me, 4 day coma of oblivion, but for him I became a mumbling, incoherent, aggressive stranger.
Poor darlin, that would have really s*** me up too (excuse me) had I been in his shoes. I think he did a grand job and I love him to bits :)
Well, I learned how I became so bruised in Hospital (and this photo doesn't even really show much of it lol) Apparently I was less than cooperative in the ICU during my coma!
Some of the marks looked like fingers and thumbs... The nurses had required my boyfriend help to restrain me. Wow automatic pilot me, liked the hospital a even less than I do/did :) oo er.
So, does it count as self induced if I was not me?
omg eek wow no fun
HOLY HELL!! Either you're a banana, or that phlebotomist totally sucked!
