I Hate Hospitals

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 695 People

    I don't hate that they exist,

    I mean so much good happens in them, but I hate how I feel when I go visit one, whether I'm sick myself or visiting someone else. I had to go today to visit someone and felt pretty ghastly about the whole scenario. I hope he gets better :(

    A Bit Ironic

    I was never very fond of hospitals. I suppose that’s because when I was very young I used to wind up there often with dislocating things in my body, becoming so dehydrated that I was forced to go on a drip, having grommets put in every few months, ect. Then, I must have looked...

    I can't deal with people lying.

    . It's so annoying. It doesn't make sense either. I'd rather have someone tell me the truth than be "polite" or "nice" .. Anyways, I'll probably be going to college soon.. It'll take three years to finish my program, and then, hopefully I'll be living on my own. I decided to...

    I really don't like being in any hospital.

    This last hospital visit from November 19th until December 4th was no different. I was hospitalized for high blood pressure towards the end of my pregnancy. They ended up keeping me there until I delivered (by c section, since inducing didn't work) on December 1st. Each day I...

    because I accidentally OD'd on sleeping pills because I had been awake for over 35 hours and couldn't do basic math. After 16 hours my siblings freaked out and called an ambulance. When I woke up in the hospital they didn't even listen to me and automatically assumed it was a...

    Odd Looks

    I always get dodgey looks from the nurses there, like they know something I don't know, i.e. I'm going to die or something. It's rather scary when I get that look, I'm not sure what to think. What have I done?? What's going to happen?? I don't like nurses :(

    Mortality

    I hate the hospital, not because I fear mortality. I know we must die, and I accept that. It's because I hate seeing people in pain, their dreams fading, their last hopes not working. It's not death, it's the dying part, the poor worriers fighting for health, the realization that...
