Comments for this study:

Norman (3 years ago):

I used to take Benadryl because I knew it would make me hallucinate. Sometimes the hallucinations would be overwhelming to the point that I had to go to the hospital and the whole situation fealt like a loosely controlable lucid dream. About the only thing I could comprehend was that I knew not to sign the 3 day watch paper. The funny thing was the nezt day when I saw the paperwork that I filled out at the hospital was complete jiberish.
