    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.

    Tell them conditions

    and have to ASK for help and what to do. They can't do anything about seeing if I have issues with my ospheagus or anything. Absolutely nothing. They lie too!! And are incredibly lazy and slack. Spent five days in one 24/7 and I can't believe the horror that is the hospital...

    I really do and have actually passed out going

    to see friends who have been hospitalized . Its embarrassing I get all light headed and if I don't get out in time for fresh air I end up on the floor . I went to have a lot of rotten and broken teeth removed about a year ago and passed out before they knocked me out .

    Er Trip On Fourth Of July

    In accordance to the title, many would assume this story is about a fire works accident this past weekend. No, nothing obvious of this nature. Instead, I was awakened at 6:30 in the morning to my 7 year old bent over at the waist and gulping, " I can't breathe! I can't breathe...

    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 :(

    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...

    Only day 3 and I'm struggling to contain my rage levels! The patient care on this ward has never exactly been good but it's getting worse. One of the ladies on the ward has her toenails half on, half off due to her condition, they won't let her walk around the ward without...

    An elderly relative fell

    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 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...

    I have been to hospitals

    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.

    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...

    Hospital was awful. Abused.

    I really hate hospitals especially

    when I'm the patient. Waking up as they roll you out of the back of an ambulance is scary. Totally freaked me out having no idea where I was. Luckily enough they let Mo ride so seeing her face helped. I was hoping to only be here for a couple hours while they ran tests but...
