When was the last time you were at a hospital? I had to go recently because my physical was due, and I had been feeling a little more tired than usual. I talked to a few people in my family and they suggested that I see my doctor because the symptoms I had could mean I had something more serious than just being tired. I have learned a few things about myself over the years.
One of them is that I cannot handle stress very well. The first time I realized this was about 6 or 7 years ago. I was working at the time at a job in the sales area. We had a lot of deadlines to meet and a lot of stress that came with it. The first time I felt some related symptoms was once that I was working a little late and I had a little difficulty breathing.
It was the very first time that something like that had happened to me, so I didn’t really know how to react. I panicked a little bit and I ended up going to the doctor. The doctor ran all sorts of tests on me, and even though I thought that I had some sort of serious condition, it all ended up being stress and nothing more. He suggested that I take it easy and try to exercise a bit.
I mean, I felt I had always exercised a lot and I didn’t need any more, but one thing that I had not realized was that I had stopped exercising some time before. I would always say that I would restart the following week and the following week would never come. Anyway, after that doctor visit, I got a little bit scared, and I started exercising again.
One thing that I did experience was being a little uncomfortable while there. I don’t know what it is about hospitals that makes me uneasy. Although I must admit that there are many hospitals that really go out of their way to make their patients feel more at home. There’s one of these hospitals near my house and I must say that they do such an excellent job that going there doesn’t seem that big of a hassle.
Another of these hospitals is the Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. A patient went there recently as she needed to treat her strep throat. She needed to take her sisters with her because she didn’t have anyone who could look after them while she was there. The doctor noticed that her sisters were a little uneasy about the visit, so Dr. Chima Matthews decided to do something to cheer them up that ended up making headlines on the Internet.
