I turned 20 on the third of this month, and since then I fell as though the universe is trying to kill me in every way possible, or hold me back. My boyfriend dumped me on the 7th, big deal right? I’ll be in another relationship soon enough. On that same day I found out one of my closest friends died, killed by a drunk driver. On the 8th I went into the hospital with kidney stone pain so bad that after almost killing me with painkillers they sent me up to Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. While there I had surgery to remove said kidney stones, lasoring them to pieces then dragging them out through my urethra, and putting a stint in so my urethra wouldn’t swell shut. I’M NOT DONE FOLKS! I left that hospital with the flu, and a pain in my left arm. After days of not being able to keep ANYTHING down I am forced by my grandmother to go to the hospital because the pain in my arm had gotten so bad I couldn’t move it, I couldn’t sleep, and anything touching it would cause me to almost pass out. I go to the hospital, they try to put an IV in my arm using a 20 gauge needle. The only thing I asked the nurse not to do is dig for a vein because I HATE that feeling and it hurts like hell, and what does she do? DIG for 5 minutes causing me to faint. After waking up from that hell they came in wanting to try AGAIN, this time they got the vein in the same stabbing hole they tried last time. They had me in my room and the first test they do is an ultrasound on my arm. My arm being in agonizing pain already I asked for some painkiller. The nurse told me
"ok one moment."
The ultrasound tech came to get me before I got said pain killer. They do the most painful ultrasound they have ever done in my life then wheel me back to my room. 20 mins later I get the pain killer I was promised. After half an hour of waiting (Yeah pretty short of a waiting time for a test in the ER), the doctor came in. I have a blood clot in my arm getting closer, and closer to my heart. I asked the doctor how in the hell I got it. His reply? From having too many IV’s in the same freaking vein. He gave me meds and a treatment plan and sent me on my way. Do you see why I think the universe is trying to kill me?
