: "Waited at the Vanderbilt ER after being laced with Cocaine and was never seen. I was freaking out because obviously I’ve never done Coke and the side effects were scary and unexpected. I was genuinely panicking in the waiting room and almost passed out from hyperventilating. I ended up waiting so long that I made it through the whole high, eventually calmed down on my own, and drove myself home. Apparently a coke high doesn’t last that long (thank God) but is really scary and intense…especially when you aren’t expecting it. Emotionally scarred forever." - DW
