I hate hospitals. I guess no one loves hospitals but i really, really hate hospitals. I don’t know if it is the colors or smell or people walking around in scrubs and knockoff crocs but I absolutely hate hospitals. I’m starting to hate the word itself. Hospitals, blarghh !
I found myself in one today. I became queasy as soon i stepped in. I don’t know, maybe it’s the people but something gets to me. I don’t feel like myself. Maybe the memories are to blame. Shit, just talking about it makes me uncomfortable!
Or maybe it is just me. But fuck, i really hate it.
I got lost in one once. It all began when my girlfriend had this problem and we had to rush to the hospital. We had gone away for the week so we were out of town. We get to this local hospital, she has to do a bunch of exams and after what seemed like endless hours, they tell us she has to stay the night. Well, this is not fun, i think. So they take her to a room and i tag along. As we go up, we notice everything looks empty. I ask why. They tells us the hospital is being renovated so they moved most of the people to outside units. Only emergency cases are able to make use of that wing of the hospital.
So, okay. Seems legit. We get to the room, they prepare their shit and they tell me i have a few minutes with her but then i have to leave. They tell me to take the stairs and exit on the first floor. There should be a security guy to open the access door to the emergency room and from there i’m able to get out.
I don’t know where i got it wrong but i got fucking lost. And everything was dark and empty and i’ve seen my fair share of scary movies to guess that this isn’t looking great for me. I panic a little, maybe have a run just because. I get to this door and it’s locked. I look out the window, i feel like I could do this jump. But i don’t, i decide to take another turn. So I go down a floor, turn this way, that way and get to ground floor. I look around for the door and it’s locked. I’m a relaxed dude, i don’t lose my shit easily but i’m about to. How the fuck can’t i find an unlocked door? I get nervous, very nervous. I start to think i might spend the night here. I don’t even know how to get back to the room, that’s how lost i am! I walk around the floor till i get to another door. Locked! I just knock on it, hard in case someone close by can hear it. I see the window, take a peek and think “I’m gonna break this shit”. So now i’m thinking how to break a glass window. There is nothing around. I might just cry, i’m stuck! But then the fucking security guy doing rounds opens the fucking door and i have to explain myself and i’m good to go.
So yeah, i fucking hate hospitals.
