    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 :(

    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...

    Bad Day

    Mildly dislike. Not full out hate. Yesterday I braved all elements of the NHS* to go to the hospital. Within minutes of entering the hospital I came face to face with a lift. A very stubborn lift. I was hopped in with two other brave people and we found that the lift was simply...

    I really do hate hospitals!

    Ever since I went to visit my Father after pioneering back surgery as a kid.. My Mother was also in and out of hospital.. Years later I had to have my tonsils out, I was 14 and on the kids ward, where I was made to feel like I had to lead by example for the younger kids! They...

    I Absolutely Hate It

    I have, for the very first time in my life, been confined in a hospital last Monday. The nurses were nice enough, the doctors are capable, I guess it's just the symbolism of the hospital that makes me weary of it. Everywhere I hear wailing. Either the crying of children, the...

    I was admitted to the hospital last night

    after overdosing on sleeping pills. A lot happened that night. It was the scariest night of my life. I've never seen that many red lights before. There were so many cops on my house. When they out me on the stretcher, I felt like I was an insane person going to an insane asylum...

    Lately I was in a hospital

    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...

    Waiting Game

    It's day 4 of this hospital stay. The cardiologist is going to visit today but no idea when and I'm so impatient. Husband is the one keeping me calm this time. I'm still amazed how well he's talking everything.I hope we can be home by tomorrow.

    I'd Rather Go To The Vet

    Whenever I had my big boy, I had to take him to the vet all the time for different things. They were always nicer to him there than any doctor or nurse has ever been to me I tell ya! Cheaper too!

    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...

    Here I am again, dealing with this crap.

    Honestly, I'm debating leaving. I've been thinking and if this stuff could end up pointless, and I could get worse, why am I wasting the time I'm actually capable of doing something, sitting in a hospital bed and hoping it gets better? I swear, I know it sucks thinking something...

    My dad woke me up before 7 saying he needed to

    go to the ER. I never thought I'd see the day where I would wake up, get dressed, and leave the house, all in under 5 minutes. The nurses and doctors at this hospital need to learn how to communicate with each other, and learn to tell the patient everything that's wrong. My...

    I've spent so much time in them they are like a

    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 :(

    Hospital was awful. Abused.

    so many times in my life, i just want to leave them. I have had 21 operations and been to appointments and small things every month for my entire life. I just want it to stop. Unfortunately, like i said i have been so many times that i have developed a fear of them.
