Wordle #64 “June 8, 2015″ – Elouise


This week’s fun words: Cartilage Paint Session Atomize (to reduce to fine particles or spray) Denouement (the final resolution of the intricacies of a plot, as of a drama or novel) Handle Cue Lapse Cocktail Paramnesia (a distortion of memory in which fact and fantasy are confused) Mizzle (misty rain) Column

Elouise Chandler lay unconscious in the ditch and was found by the paramedics just in time they said, as it was clear to them that Elouise had a cocktail of drugs in her system and over the coming days her condition was described as being a severe dose of paramnesia. In other words she didn’t know if she was coming or going.

She kept up a steady stream of abuse to all who gathered around her to help in her recovery. Her language painted a scene of not only distress but also her inability to handle the reality that confronted her.

She remained delusional for several days. Her sessions with her psychologist were handled with patience and each cue he gave her to commit to some form of reality only caused her to relapse even further in to the dark and grey mizzle that was her mind.

On the third day of her treatment when leaning against a column in the ward Elouise felt her life atomise before her eyes when an cartilage in her knee decided it didn’t want to be where nature had put it and moved seriously creating an interesting if not painful denouement to her state of mind.

Her already paramesial state of mind went from bad to worse, she suddenly realised the mizzle was falling on her head not inside and for reasons best not explained she had this irresistible urge to paint the hospital columns a cocktail of colours that could only be explained as a lapse into insanity.

Today Elouise drools happily in the closed ward and writes long essays about atomizing herself in the denouement of every story she writes.

    The run-on sentences add to the insanity.
    I do feel sympathy for (and empathy with) Elouise.
    Great use of wordle words in a very pleasing way! (was going to make run-on sentence, but it’s late, and I’d best be abed.)

    Sadly true picture–well written.

  3. I also sympathize with Eloise as I suffer from paramnesia. When people tell me about dreams for example I have to mentally remind myself that their dreams are not reality, sometimes I have to ask them a few times to confirm that the dreams are not based on factual events. They could be talking about dragons and I think well maybe who am I to say lol They look at me oddly but I think reality is rather flexible haha

    Fascinating response to the wordle – which in itself is – as usual interesting and challenging enough.

    You paint such a vivid portrait and character – it’s almost too real – and heartbreaking as well. But not all stories end well – all of the time. Well done Michael 😀

    It’s always interesting to read the stories you come up with and the ways in which you manage to get the wordle words in there MORE than once. I find it a challenging enough task getting them in there once!! Great job 🙂

    great story, Michael. I met a girl in one of the many psych wards I was in who had paramnesia. It’s such a sad disease and seems to be little help for it. You painted an accurate description here.
