I was hospitalized once for having typhus. Not a good experience at all. I hate the smell of hopital! I was tortured with my disease though.. ;p It was the most awful 2 weeks in my life.. I couldn't go to school, I couldn't do anything except lying in bed and watching TV.. I even couldn't go bath by myself..

It is cool. Your parents get worried and treat you kindly lol Just kidding, being hospitalized sucks. I had that experience several times when I was a child, I had those asthma problems, so every now I then I had to go to the hospital. Not good at all!

I don't like hospitals so I have had three home births. When I was 22 years old my older son was born. I had a water birth at home which was delightful. However afterwards I had a retained placenta. I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and had a manual removal which was incredibly painful. I stayed for as little time as possible before I went home. It was a matter of two or so hours. When I was 36 years old my daughter was born at home on my sofa. After her birth I had much difficulty delivering the placenta. It came out with four blood clots. I lost two and a half liters of blood. My blood pressure went very low and I kept fainting. I was taken to hospital to a high dependency unit. I discharged myself after two days. I hated it there. I saw many different staff including a consultant that scared me by saying I would probably die. I proved her wrong I am glad to say. I went to my local hospital for two more nights. I rushed to get home but needed six weeks taking things easy.

It's good to do the home births if you can. My first baby was a c-section so I had to be in a hospital. With the other two they were natural but had to be helped out because my pelvic bone is deformed from an accident when I was four. I could push all day and baby isn't going to come out on its own. Some people just shouldn't be in the medical field. Telling someone they are going to die is just beyond insensitive.

That was good for you. I cannot recall how many times I have been confined in a hospital. But I do remember the last two because they are more recent. Back in 2007 I was hospitalized for a couple of weeks. I had an operation due to ovarian cyst. My left ovary were removed together with the cyst which is almost as big as my fist already. That was really one the experiences which I don't like to happen again. The most recent is back in 2008, month of June. I was rushed to the hospital due to severe stomach pain. I was so scared that time because I thought that it was due to another ovarian cyst again since the doctor said that my right ovary still has the possibility to have that again. Luckily it was just gastritis that is making my stomach in pain. It took me several days in the hospital that time.

hello ayebelle! i am just like you who have never been confined in the hospital...and like you, i am also thankful for that. i just visit the hospital for a check up and once in my life i have been there for a simple surgery in my knee due to an accident when i was still a child about 5 or 6 years old...huh! but i also go home that day so no confinement for me... but i know how it feels to stay in the hospital for quite sometimes....its kinda boring and sometimes irritating...hehe that's according to my mom coz she is always being confined in the hospital...and another thing is that its also difficult for our relatives who take care of us while we are there...i also know the feeling coz we experienced that when my grandmother has been confined for about or more than a month...huh!

Conratulations for never been confined in a hospital before. You must be very healthy. I was confined twice in the hospital before. I was still a litlle girl that time. I had pneumonia. And the second one ws that I was dehydrated. I can't really remeber my diagnosis on my second confinement. Anyways, honestly, i enjoy being admitted on the hospital before because I was really pampered by my parents and that everyone was serving me in the hospital, lol.

you enjoy being admitted? LOL. Yes im so lucky for not having such illness, infections, and diseases. So it much be better if you stay healthy and not being admitted again, because its really need a lot of money.

As far as I know, I'd been confined only once and that was when I was very young. That has got nothing to do with an illness though, I hurt my eye while playing. That gave me nice memories of caring nurses, doctors and nice food. Well, that maybe be a little different than what you are trying to point out. That being said, I have been to hospitals a lot, visiting friends, encouraging and helping people out. All I can say is that it's not a pleasant and certainly not an enviable experience.

Me too, However i can't say i have a healthy body and strong immune system but luckily i am not able to try being confine in a hospital yet and never in my dreams to be confine unless i give birth in the future. Besides hospital will make me sick so i rather choose to stay at home whenever i get sick. Well never had a bad sickness that needs to be in hospital before. So i am thankful for that. I always pray for good health. Have a nice day!

I have been to hospital many times, and I would say, I don't like it much. But then those were because my family members fell sick and not me. I mean hospitals aren't the most fun place to be. Yet there was a time when it didn't really feel that bad. It was when I broke my arm. I was pretty young then and while playing I lost my balance and fell from the first floor of my building. I broke my right arm by the wrist. It was looking pretty horrible. Everyone in the building came to the rescue and one of the uncles took me to his place. He then called my parents and they took me to the hospital, to get me a plaster. There I was laid at a bed and the doctor gave me some sedative, after that everything went a blur and it all felt like a dream. He then put the bones back at place and put on the plaster. It was kind of fun, I mean not the "Breaking your arm" thing, but the whole hospital experience, cause I had never felt that way. Well that was the only time, except that I am proud of myself and my body. Hope I stay this way. Take Care

Hmmmm. I've never been hospitalized either, except the day my mom gave birth to me in the hospital :) But basically, having graduated from a Nursing course, the hospital seems to be our second home. But I do believe it feels different when you work in a hospital, compared to when you are the one confined. But on the part of the nurse, it's really a tough job as you have to monitor all of your patients and make sure you carry out all orders efficiently, and at the same time deliver your TLC to your patients :) Happy myLotting! :)

Like you, I have never been confined in a hospital yet. Last June, I was about to be confined because I was very sick that they almost thought I have A(H1N1) virus. But then it came out that I didn't have it but only a form of a viral infection. I was glad that I was not confined because I hate staying in hospitals. It's like I feel imprisoned there or something. Haha. Take care!

since i was a kid i've been the to hospital many times due to gastro-interitis and influenza. when you're in the hospital you feel so special because you are treated so well and your parents will give all your request especially food. they want you to feel better and eat more to regain health and not to be confined in the hospital longer. as i grow older, no more hospital drama for me. my last was when i gave birth with my second child, i am on CS. you are lucky enough not to be hospitalized. stay healthy.

I stayed in the hospital once, when I was 14 years old due to some surgery I had. I stayed there for about a week, and it was kind of boring. Just imagine you are in the room and not suppose to do anything rather than staying in bed to rest. I didn't enjoy it, some people who came to visit may entertain you, but only for a while. After that you'd back to your boredom lol. Health is indeed more valuable than money, so keep it very carefully.

Good day.. It's nice to hear that you have a clean bill of health and to stay that way you should have at least one regular check up a year. I was once hospitalized for an operation which was a removal of lipoma in my chest. Well., it;s kind of scary since you would be on sedative and when you wake up it's going to be over. My operation went well. I think one should be aware that going to a hospital is not that bad instead it is life saving.

Hospital Mask - I was admitted at The Medical City last July 14, 2009. This photo was taken by my friend who visited on my 2nd day. I was required to have a face mask because I have pneumonia and my asthma was bad.
Wow. Lucky you, I guess. I have been confined quite a couple of times. The most recent one was last July 14, 2009 and I stayed there for almost a week. I went to see my doctor for just a checkup and to get prescriptions and I ended up not going home and being admitted that day. I guess that was the longest I had stayed in the hospital. I usually get discharged overnight or a day or two after. I used to enjoy it because then I could have and eat whatever food I want, my dad would spoil me like that. But during my latest admission, it wasn't as "enjoyable" as before because my parents were not with me, I was alone (with only an aunt and helper taking care of me). It made me miss my dad even more. And since everytime I am confined, my dad always buy me take outs I didn't get to eat hospital food until last July and I hated it. Needless to say, I only felt the "hospital vibes" recently and it's not good... not at all.
