I am going to write about experiences iun the hospital over the past week under this title thingie as i have a some things about it on my mind . I hope not to offend too many people and especialy the guys here . Remember , the delete key is always close by .

As some of you may know by now , i was in the hospital this past week for some minor arthroscopic knee surgery which i have had done before . Actually , this was done because like the bad girl that i am , i have been like real guilty of hopping and it just took it's toll out on the knee so , repair time . This was also to be the first step in a series of steps to get me to WALK again rather than use these stupid crutches so , off i went . This is also the first time i had anything like major done to me since i was injnured and that expereince was likke the expereince from hell .

Ya , i put on a brave little face and said things like ya , it's no biggie but , i was like REAL scared inside and tried everything to hide that . Didn't do too good a job at it i guess because some peoplevery close to me saw right throught the fear . I mean like , the last time i was in for anything big , i came out with less and while the outcome would have most likely been the same , the last Dr. who did anything to me messed up real bad so , i hav ethis like HUGE fear of Drs. now . I guess what ran through my mind was stuffs like wondering what they will mess up now .

Well , monday morning and I check in and go to the place i ned to be at . To my huge surprise , I got this private room . well , i settle in with my mom , dad and michelle and we discuss what will be happeneing . some time passs and now , the Dr. walks in and we all have a talk about what it going on . By now , i had to change into these UGLY hospital clothes . I mean like , these people here ned a serious dose of MJ's fashion clinic because the stuff they wore and made me wear ust didn't cut it in my fashion file .. YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUK .

My mom , dad and michelle all in the room , the DR. startes his exam of my knee and while it was a notrhing sort of exam , i like went totaly whacko on him . I had this past memory event replaying big time in my head and it was getting worse . The Dr. must have given me something to chill me out because i don't realy remember much after that . I had the op the next day and i was told that i like totaly freaked out again as i was coming out of the anasthetic thingie . and am not surre if i was again sedated ot was resrtained . I HATE DRS. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR .

Well , i should have been out like the next day but i had to see the staff shrink to see what the deal was in my head . Anyway , the shrink was made aware of the situation and sort of tried to help me work it out but with not much success . So , i had mom or dad or michelle stay with me pretty much the whole time i was there in like shift things . However , i also had my very own angel with me ALL the time so i knew i would be like fine .

Friday came and since that is my usual day i see my own shrink once a week , she came to me this and we talked like forever . she has been like soooo good with me and while she does make me mad sometimes , she at least really tires hard to clean up the head .

So the lesson here is that when one has to see a Dr. for anything , it is a good idea to tell them EVERYTHING since at least that way , they have a better idea of how and what to do or not do . For me , i prefer and well , insist on have woman Drs. for em since i sometimes wonder if a male Dr. can like rally iunderstand issues that are realated to us gurls only .

I had this song running through my head like the whole time :

" .....When I get to the bottom

I go back to the top of the slide

When I stop I turn go for a ride

When I get to the bottom when I see you again yeah ..."

( Helter skelter ........ Siouxsie and the banshee's )

I was like sooooooo totaly confussed and messed up for a while that i felt this other song to but i don't know who wrote it but i like love the words :

" .... a knife , a fork , a bottle and a cork , that's the way to spell New York ... "

( unkmnown artist )

However , after all was done , i elt like a totaly new person with a whole new outlook and knowing that the future is now about to start . Here is the future , here comes , here come slushy gurl . Og course , i have to try hard to keep my sort of like this bad gurl thingie too .

The reason hospital cloths are so ugly is they don't want people running away

Eric , trust me , it's teh food they feed you that'll mak epeople runaway much faster . I mean like , no art , no cool clthes , elevator music . Run away ? HA ... they even took away my crutches while i was there and i had to get around in this like really old crappy looking wheelchair . GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR . On the plus side however , they did have this way cool supersized shower they FINALLY let me use .

Nooooooo Eric, the reason the hospital clothes are so ugly (at least over here anyway) is to stop people nicking them I think.

MJ, we've all done the disgusting robe thing I think at some time or other-brown flowers were my least fave :lol:

Will PM ya.

Sorry I couldn't help it :blink: After years of resistance (and a diet) I have now decided I CAN wear a thong and feel all sexiful :angry: I love the ones with all the fancy jewelly things on the back-certainly gets attention from the fellas B) Hasten to add, I don't run round flashing my knickers or 'owt, they just tend to be visible above your jeans or whatever :blink:

Even the gown's have changed with time....From red roses to withered brown daffodiles... :P :D Let's get Gadget on the case..... He might have a contact at the NHS..... :D

Helloi MJ,

Written by Lennon and McCartney.

Origionally recorded on The Beatles White Album.

Haven't heard Siouxsie and the banshee's perform it. I will keep my ear out for it.

I hate Doctors and hospitals too, and for the very same reasons, but prefer female doctors for other reasons. :lol:

Welcome back. It's good to have you home and on the forum. Wishing you a very speedy recovery so that you can go forward and conquer.

All the best,

Hey Johnny-get outta the girlies thread when we're talkin' knickers and things, deary me, have you no shame?? :o :lol: Like busting into the ladies loos when we're having one of them private group girly chat type things is that~nods~. I'm only pullin' your leg and before anyone decides to make the quip I usually do that it could drop off, that's MY gag okay. :P

Siouxsie and the Banshees version was really good Johnny, have a listen sometime-you might like it :)

Johnny , i you want to hear the BEST version , you REALLY need to listen to the LIVE VERSION from SATB . It is one of the MOST powerfull songs i have EVER heard from a gurl who can outsing just about anyone . If you also want to sample some their other stuff , i might suggest ARABIAN KNIGHTS or ISREAL by the same band . I can listen to those songs 24/7 .
