This one makes my skin crawl.
Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do
I hope I never have to take my family to the emergency room. Emergencies terrify me. Hospitals that take care of those emergencies terrify me. I hope and pray that never has to happen so I can avoid it all together. When I was a child, I never broke any bones, I was never rushed to the hospital, I really didn't have much experience until my sister's temperature peaked to past 104 degrees (when your DNA starts to unravel). We went to the hospital and the response was frustratingly slow. She looked so awful, I can't even describe. She couldn't walk so my mom and I took turns trying to carry her. The nurses were nicer than the doctors. I know that if you work in an emergency room you're over loaded and each person who comes in thinks that their case is more important than the next person... but the whole emergency room situation scares me.
More than the fact that Emergency rooms are chaos, it's also one of the situations in which I feel completely helpless. Like being sued. Like being told you have an incurable disease. Like trying to understand and work through a bureaucracy.
Thinking about this is completely draining.
