Anxious about Hospitalisations

Been hoping that I could leave my hospitalisation days behind, but recently had to be hospitalised again for a blood transfusion. Chemo attacks dividing cells and that includes red blood cells.

Was very reluctant and dejected about going in, as I was traumatised by the previous experience of one day of hospitalisation stretching to almost 2 weeks. Felt so claustrophobic and hated that loss of control.

This time though, I’m so relieved that it wasn’t so bad, apart from severe bloating from all the IVs. I immediately put on 2kgs just from the excess fluids, but definitely not as awful as the 9kgs from the last hospital stay.
