    I'm not sure what group this would go under.

    About 5 months ago, I was hospitalized. I very nearly died. I went into the ER with bloodshot eyes and a red rash that covered my entire torso and neck. I was incredibly luck because the doctors were in the room when my blood pressure dropped. They called septic protocol, and I...

    This past Sunday around 5am I found myself in a

    hospital bed. I could hardly see and everything inside my head felt and sounded fuzzy. Like if they had put a giant pot over my head and banged it for an hour. When the doctor and my aunt noticed I was gaining conscience, they rushed over to me and asked how was my pain level...

    I've been in mental hospitals three different

    times in the last three months. I didn't even make it home. I'd get discharged go to another program and then go back in the hospital. Sigh. I'm just too crazy.

    Worst ten days of my life.

    It got very embarrassing, and I was always nervous, given my appearance. They required me to be naked the whole time, due to frostbite. Even if I had the covers over me, it made me nervous to be naked. Especially since the nurse was a female who wasn't a whole lot older than me...

    I Don't Like Hospitals.

    I've been in a psychiatric ward twice this last spring of 2012. For attempting suicide. I stayed a week. I don't like to be locked up for long. It's traumatizing when I have to be in the hospital. But I know it's only way to keep me safe for a while.
