I woke disoriented.

Details flooded back. My body remembered searing agony.

“Remember to breathe.”

I peeked at my wrist. The needle, encased in Tegaderm and tape, confirmed I should be feeling no pain.

This was the price for not listening and disregarding the instructions.

The tv droned. I know I told them to turn it off. My lunch tray held a carton of milk, a cup of pudding, and a frosted container of ice cream, designed to tempt me.

Shaking my head, I pushed it aside. How many times must I tell them I am lactose intolerant? No, not kidding.

  1. details! how often we miss them or see just what we want. on a different note, this would be a serious case for the clinic or hospital involved, food allergies must be visible to all caregivers.

  2. I use to work in a hospital, (Ward Clerk) and I have to agree, some hospital staff are diligent, while others have the attitude if they are well enough to complain, there well enough to go home.
