    Drug Test

    I had a catheter put in because I was being tested for drugs. It was my first psychiatric hospitalization and they wanted to make sure I hadn't overdosed any medication to kill myself. I told them I hadn't, but they couldn't take my word for it and had to do a UA anyway. My...

    I Was Cathetered Once In The Er.

    I was out of it when they put it in. It hurt a little removing it. It burned to pee a few times after that. Not a bad experience. I want to try it again, just away from the hospital.
