Up, kiddo, back to hospital. It must have done you SOME good before, and it really wasn't such a bad place after all (there was an RN we called Nurse Ratchett, but the rest of them were kind).
In fact, my roommate went to the mental ward for VACATION. She told me that whenever she needed a break from her kids and her abusive husband, she would cut herself so they would lock her up. I said, "Was your husband abusive to the kids?"
She shrugged and said, "Sometimes."
I just stared at her. Here was an abnormal person who thought she was normal pretending to be abnormal. And her poor kids! I would kill anyone who tried to hurt my kids, and she seemed to care less. I was shocked and disgusted.
Then she said, "Oh, if you see me passed out on the floor, just call the nurse."
I said, "Uh-huh". I figured I would leave her ass on the floor - when she got cold, she would get up. What a strange person.
Sorry, don't know why I got into that. Generally the hospital was very helpful for me.
