Weird. If you thought it came from the pink pill, did you save the next dose, crush the pink coating off and see if there was a battery in it?
Yeah, I bit into it the next night. It was a normal tablet.

At the time I thought my mistake was telling a few people what had happened, and they didn't do it again because I had told people about it.

Though now I'm not sure if telling people was the reason it didn't happen that night.

Btw.

I still felt ill on the second day, I think I was fine after that. Hasn't seemed to happen again since. (that I know of)

How big was the battery, measurement wise.

It wasn't one of the flat batteries, and it wasn't one of the smaller button cell batteries.
I would say my best estimate is over 5mm wide but less than 10mm wide. It was almost as 'thick' as it was 'wide'

The same size as the tablet. reply to: Atsbhct

Did it have the positive/negative markings?

Maybe it wasn't a battery but an expired pill that hardened or something?

I woulda left it In a cup of water or something to see if it dissolved at all.

In any case, I bet it was the meds that made you feel ill, regardless of the mystery battery.

I'm glad you're doing better!

You can't mistake a button cell battery for a tablet. Tablets aren't silver and they don't rust.

You said it was the shape of the tablet. I know they make some of those meds so you can't split them and taper off.

I was thinking maybe the shell dissolved and revealed the medicine that hardened into a metal like state.

Far fetched, but so is the premise of the OP.

But it had the battery markings on the back, though I can't remember what they were.

I said the battery and tablet were the same size, but if I remember I'm sure the tablet was more oval shape. a reply to: GoShredAK

I can't remember as I have changed type of medication and dose a few times.

But it was an antipsychotic.

Weird, I wouldn't put anything past psych doctors really. I'm not trying to freak you out either. I have been down this road before.

I never left the room nor did anybody enter the room.

I threw my tablet in the toilet and went to bed, next day I went straight to the toilet when I woke up.

No one had been in my room using any device (during the day) unless they were using the device on me, and no one used any device on me.

I thought of something else.

Bear with me. Ever flushed the toilet, watch stuff disappear down the hole only to see a small bit come back up right at the end?

All toilets have what is called a siphon trap, an elbow in the design to keep smells from coming back from the pipe into the bathroom through the toilet. Its possible the battery, (being too heavy) was caught in the trap for some time before coming back into the bowl when you flushed it.

It may have been there, been thrown away by some nurse like I suggested earlier, but not completely flushed away.

I figured it was either some people I had met not long before I went to hospital, that we're into some weird things (paranormal things)

Or an agency of some kind (government/secret society). Although I went through some unexplainable events and talked about it, I'm not sure this is enough of a reason to poison me, as a lot of people talk about paranormal experiences.

I have thought that maybe one of the nurses that gives out the medication could have been in on it. But I don't think the doctors were...although I can't be 100% sure.

They didn't use any devices on me, so why would a device be in my room? And it's unlikely that someone entered my room with a device not intended for me, whilst I wasn't there.

This is the most plausible explanation IMO.

Maybe,

But like I said I was in that room for a few weeks, so it's unlikely to be from the mental patient in there before me...

And no devices were in my room for the whole time I was in hospital...

Also strange that it happened the same night I flushed my tablet.

Not surprising at all. Modern life is deeply unfulfilling, especially for men. Deep down every guy knows something is seriously wrong. Every man who's testosterone hasn't already been obliterated by all the chemicals is still effectively living in the wilderness, or his biology is anyway. He needs to go out and fight, f*ck, hunt, build stuff with his own hands, craft, run, and howl.....
That has nothing to do with this thread.
