Qat and bath salts continued
Here is Qat, a mildly hallucinogenic form of speed, chewed throughout africa, parts of asia, and oceana. As for the case i saw recently, the woman had been out partying at the bars all night and called the squad for severe pelvic pain. She was found in bed with two men. She complained that her vagina hurt and her rectum hurt, and "I have cum all over my leg". She was a ridiculously difficult and aggressive patient. She thought I was a "prick". Oh well, my first case of bath salt abuse anyway.
Although some parts of this blog may be based on real life events, the patients represented are either completely fictional characters, or the details of the clinical circumstances are so drastically changed that a connection should never be made with an actual person or event. Those seeking to make such a connection would do better to look inside their own hearts and in their own communities because this blog is about a large part of America
