Project: 10 Year
There were two times I visited the emergency room. The first time was when I was in high school. After my school festival, I was helping one of the teachers clean up the posters on the wall. When I removed one poster from the wall, it rolled from the wall and hit my eye. I had to visit the hospital for weeks, but thankfully my eye is back to normal.
The second time I visited the emergency room was in early 2012. I was visiting my in-laws and my husband. My throat was a bit sore. The pain got bad quickly, and I couldn’t drink water. Because of that, I became weak and dehydrated. My husband took me to the hospital and I took two full IVs and some medication. It wasn’t anything serious but I was in enough pain that it made me think about my health. It’s always like this; you don’t notice something good before it goes bad. Also it’s easy to forget once it’s back.
It was very nice to enjoy the scenery after I got better. Everything looked better and I even spotted a rainbow.
I don’t drink soda much, but after my doctor discharged me I asked him if I could drink soda. I think I wanted to have something sharp that could scratch my throat. The doctor was very nice too. He had cool dreadlocks. It’s almost impossible to see a doctor with hair like that in Korea. I like this kind of freedom in the U.S.
Stay health everyone!
