That magic little pill that differs for everyone. My flavour is lorazepam. I asked the nurse what it stood for. She didn’t know; “something latin about calming I think”. It turns out that yes PRN is latin and it stands for Pro Re Nata or As the circumstance arises. Basically it’s medication given to us loopys as needed. It’s non scheduled but it seems to be the go to response when staff see you having a rough moment.
I was caught beating the crap out of my bedroom matress. “Have you had your PRN today?”. Yeah because that fixes all of life’s problems, let’s drug everyone. Admittidely I have now become less ashamed asking for it. It takes the edge off. In a world where I am monitored every 15 minutes and can no longer self harm, PRN has become a bit of a savour. But hold on, When will you actually start fixing me?
You have a beautiful soul.
