The Hospital

is not as packed as you see in films
with maybe one or two children in the ICU at a time
I don’t understand how you can have a phobia of hospitals
it’s mostly just a couple of rooms with some beds in
I didn’t know the doctor’s name but she seemed
pretty friendly at first, you know, she had a kind face
the TV was a good distraction
I didn’t want to look straight in her eyes
