So, I was just on a very typical triage call and one of the very regular questions that gets asked is about drug use. Sometimes they just ask in general, sometimes they get into detail about certain drugs if the symptoms require a more precise answer. As I was listening to the list and the poor fellah with the pain in his belly was answering in that tone of voice that says, “What?! I can’t believe you are even saying that word out-loud!!” I thought to myself if I were asked the same list of questions to the tune of have you ever, I would have to lie a number of times in order to give all no answers. Which made me think about my personal ideal of innocence (in general, not just about controlled substances) in comparison to my actual level of innocence if I really put a hard look to the records in the Wrey Vault. Funny how ideals and reality hardly ever match, aye? I figured I would create a scale to represent where you feel your level of innocence lies. I am sure we will all have our own reasons for why we choose what we choose, so there is no sense in trying to make something all inclusive. For certain, someone's description will be left out.
