Sound Waves

I totally forgot about the following account til today, but I thought it was still interesting enough to write it down. When you think of places that play soothing sounds in the background, people usually think of salons and spas. Well, add ECT treatment room to that list. As I was getting situated for ECT, I noticed the sound of the ocean that seem to fill the room. Since the last time I had my treatment, they had decided to install a bunch of sound machines in the room. Someone asked me if I wanted to hear something else, but I stuck with the rolling waves. I could hear from the other beds the sounds of chirping birds, though. I can’t quite remember what all was said about this machine since it was right before my ECT.

As strange as it may seem to install something like a sound machine to the ECT room, I think it’s a pretty good idea. I often have to lie there having to listen to my own thoughts, and it was nice to be distracted by these tides crashing to the shore. This is yet another reason why I appreciate Parthenon Pavilion.
