Some of you know i am a medic. This weekend I had a patient, who is also a friend. He say he hit his head on friday, at work (unwitnessed) and dont remember getting home. Saturday his family says he went to that bar and the bar called and said he left walking the wrong way. So they searched for him for over an hour, found him walking in the mud, really confused, brought him home and called an ambulance. When I got there he was very angry, didnt recognize any one in the house (g.f and family) and couldnt remember the day, year or how old he is. BUT he knew me right away by name. Finally convinced him to go to ER. They released him saying no head injury, just to much booze. Now tonight the family couldnt find him again. He was found wandering the streets again 3hrs latter. I found him, he said hes just very confused, and has been walking. Im kind of concerned. When my mom was alive, she drank so much she would "black out" and not recognize us kids. Could this be whats wrong with him? Or do you guys think theres more to it? Maybe drugs? I know im the medical person, just wondering if blackout drinking is a common thing and can it go on for days at a time?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
