At the ER they put me in a room and gave me a dose of Morphine. Morphine is a very nice drug. It had the effect of filing the pain away in a convenient subdirectory where I could access it if I needed it, but was otherwise out of the way.
Brilliant description. I recently had a healthy diet of Morphine for a couple of days (followed by a few more days of oxynorm, which is similar). After my first dose of Morphine the emergency doctor came to see me and I couldn’t help grinning like a loony, despite the horror of my injury. Good stuff when you need it.
