Drilling in my head again

June 23, 2020: I woke up in the middle of the night only to find someone drilling in the back of my head. It didn’t hurt, but it was just like what you might expect, kinda like a dentist drilling in your mouth, but this was someone with a larger drill, drilling into the back-right side of my head.

This happened once before, maybe 1-2 years ago, and that time I panicked. I started trying to yell, “I’m not dead,” “I’m not asleep, either!” I just wanted to get the heck out of there, so I woke up quickly.

This time I was extremely groggy, but I realized that there wasn’t any pain, just noise, so I tried to keep my eyes open and look around. Unfortunately most of my view was obscured, and I could only see out of my right eye, and most of that view was blocked. I could only see the floor and the bottom of some people’s outfits. From what I could tell, they were all wearing white and lightblue or lightgreen surgical garb.

Meanwhile there was that drilling in the back of my head. Then it stopped for a moment and they were doing something else back there. The only thing I got from the entire event is that one of the nurses said, “Dr. Ar-mould, blah blah blah.” When I woke up I wrote down that name, but I have no idea how to spell it.

I was probably only awake for 10-20 seconds total. Unlike last time when I panicked, this time I wanted to stay there as long as possible to “observe and report.” But unfortunately I was too groggy to stay awake any longer.
