Last weekend...

So last Friday I was admitted to hospital for a long and arduous 3 night stay. Only 3 nights you say? Trust me, when you are in hospital, lasts approximately a week.

I was admitted with acute abdominal pain. After twice being diagnosed with appendicitis on the first day of admission (my appendix having been removed in 1995) they have now settled on it being a girl problem they are reluctant to intervene with, other than to manage the pain with painkillers.

So there comes my first irritation. Forever to be referred to as "The Night From Hell" having been told that my pain would be managed with analgesia, I was written up for paracetamol. Despite hours of sobbing, hours of being told "the doctor will see you shortly" and absolutely no sleep whatsoever, 19 HOURS LATER I was finally seen by a doctor and prescribed some proper pain relief.
