The Power of Meth

We respond to a suicidal female, who we learn had run from her probation officer the day before when she was sentenced to 4 days in jail for flunking court-ordered drug tests. When she refuses to open the door for us, we finally kick it in. She then begins a meth-fueled bout of hysteria - shrieking, crying (with real tears), flailing, swearing - the likes of which I've never seen before. I mean 9.5 on the Richter scale, and still going full force 90 minutes later when we left her, restrained to a bed in the ER. I was genuinely impressed at her single-mindedness and endurance. I would've been exhausted in half the time.
