Auld Lang syne
Type of Spiritual Experience
Hospital psychosis! Presumably this is another thing thought up by those who can’t be bothered to find out the real cause – the poor chap is going deaf, they may even have damaged his ocular nerves in the hospital who knows………. I despair... an observation from wisegeek
A description of the experience
I am a 72 year old man who has been hospitalized several times in the past year. During one stay I began hearing about 4 bars of Auld Lang Syne sung over and over. I called my nurse to put an end to it and she called two others including the head nurse. No one else could hear the music.
During a subsequent stay, I began hearing all sorts of music, a lot of which I hadn't thought of in year and some of it World War II music. The same bars play over and over. This is not a case of a little ditty that I think of in the morning and stays with me during the day. This is something I can't stop. I was told I had hospital psychosis.
I've been out of the hospital a couple months now and recuperating very nicely but the music continues. Right now, Auld Lang Syne has been playing for at least an hour. I can change the song by thinking of another and then the new song will play repetitively. Fortunately, it's not bad music and it's not very loud so I can put up with it.
