like twice when i had seizures
Posted 12/13/13
I go once every three months just for a checkup. I've been for other reasons too. Twice my knee slipped out of place and I had to go get x-rays and medicine for it. lol That's not all though. Just my experience that stands out the most.

Hm I think 4 or so times.
First two I don't remember since I was too young, but I have scars from them and I was told that I got stitched up for each one so yeah.
Third time I stuck a bunch of those little helicopter seeds (a maple seed?) in my right ear, they had to vacuum it out.
Fourth time I stuck my hand through a fish tank that I was cleaning too hard, cut my hand and wrist up pretty damn well. Still have a two inch scar on my wrist from this one, it definitely made me more aware of how dangerous glass can be.

I don't know how well off I would be if it wasn't for modern medicine...

Geez. Cheapest fish tank ever or you must have been seriously working out some aggression on that thing. Those are usually pretty thick. At least all the ones we have ever had were.

Well as a patient of only been there a couple times. Once when I was real little I think it was a hernia i had removed and a cyst on my eye. Then I split my chin open a few years later. (Sorry I lied there were three times) Beyond that I've been in an ER as an EMT student.

I had it on the ground and was scrubbing the bottom of it putting a lot of pressure on it, probably a lot of my body weight. Thats not to say that it wasn't cheap though, I think it was one of those $20 dollar ones, idk.

I went in for a quick procedure when I was around 15. I had a pyogenic granuloma (a lump of arteries and veins) on my lip; the hospital visit was to get it removed.

The only other time I went to the hospital was when I visited the mental ward. I had come back from Christmas and was a little down, so I told some of my coworkers. Unfortunately there had been a suicide in the unit recently, and everyone overreacted, so they took me to the mental ward at a nearby hospital. Despite the constant jokes people make about wanting to go to an asylum... it's not a fun place. Got diagnosed with a PD and discharged 6 months later.

Not fun.

Twice. Once to get my tonsils removed, no big deal. I was about 8. Second time was two years ago when I had a kidney stone. That shit was not fun. Not fun at all. It literally feels like your sides are being split open.

My parents drove me into the Emergency ward, and the staff did two things that really irritated me. One, they preformed an ultrasound to make sure it was a stone and not appendicitis or something. Getting an ultrasound when you have a kidney stone hurts like mother flipping hell. The lady was not gentle, either. When she saw me writhing in pain, she asked in a monotone, unconcerned voice "You okay?" and then proceeded to jam the thing into my side. No mercy. It was the middle of the night, so I guess she was just cranky about working the graveyard shift or something.

Second, they made me lie in a bed with all those monitors and IVs hooked up to me. I didn't see the purpose for this, since they said all I'd need to do is take the medicine they gave me to ease the pain, wait a while, and then go home. When you have a kidney stone, it helps to be in constant movement. It hurts a lot less if you walk around or, as I did, skip. Laying down, all still, is a nightmare. I felt like I was being set on fire, but I couldn't stop drop and roll. I was just being held there to slowly burn alive.

Then there was the puking. I almost forgot about the puking. I really wish I hadn't remembered. The pain got so bad that I threw up every couple minutes.

After a few hours in hell, the pain had dulled a bit and I was too exhausted to feel anything anyways, so we went home.

At least the nurse was nice.

If for just myself... I have only been in twice... once was when I was little I ran up the stairs tripped and nailed myself pretty good on the chin, needed stitches after that. 2nd in middle school I passed out during a soccer match, woke up in a hospital room. Don't remember all the details there.

But otherwise I am still "in the hospital" yearly for my handicapped sister, when she was little she practically lived there as well.

Speaking of yearly, I do yearly physicals or whatever, so I guess I am still in hospitals that way as well.

Well a month ago I went to the hospital because I broke my left knee. It was a skateboarding accident, I was trying to heelflip an 8 stair and when I landed I completely lost balance and fell of my board. Anyways I had surgery and I currently have a cast on. I'll be able to start walking on January 15! It sucks that I have to spend the holidays on crutches but I guess skateboarding is a risky sport.

About two years ago, I started showing symptoms of muscle weakness. I've been admitted to the hospital about 4-5 times (two being muscle biopsy surgeries and the rest just trying to figure out what was wrong w/ me). Long story short, they finally found out what was wrong w/ me after the 2nd surgery and diagnosed me with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. Haven't been admitted to the hospital since last year.
