Lyn Waring’s Story
“In May, 2010, I almost died. I had a near-fatal reaction to a 5 mg prescription of Methadone. Even though my husband was home at the time, we were in opposite wings of the house. He found me on the living room floor, non-responsive and barely breathing. 911 EMTs came and decided to intubate me during the ride to the Hospital.
At the ER, I was treated with 4 doses of Narcam which is considered unusual, but still I remained unconscious. What I remember is coming to and thinking I had to pull whatever was down my throat, out. To me, the intubation tube felt like an octopus with suction cups for legs. I dragged that thing out even though it felt like sharp knives.
It was after my week-long hospital stay that my husband remarked on my strange behavior. You don’t want to do that in public, do you? he asked me. I had been reaching into my mouth trying to pull out imaginary strings from my teeth and gums. For the next 8 years, we would battle this obsessive compulsive disorder that came to be diagnosed as a Tacile Hallucination OCD.
After 7 years and 4 therapists. we made no inroads, I came to the last one who thought that I might have PTSD. That therapist tried EMDR on me,with no effect. Since tapping has had such a good track record with PTSD, I thought I should try it.”
