Following on from Philomela asking for advice re RBH admission i thought i'd do a light-hearted post about costa
Has anyone been in costa for stuff other than asthma with funny / random stories to tell?
I'll start if off. I'm lucky that i've only been an in-patient once and it wasn't for asthma.
I had a VERY large abscess in my armpit that the GP said needed lancing in A&E - get to A&E but they say it needs full surgery general anaesthetic the lot! Oh well, got admitted to SAU and got talking to the other ladies in there. Obviously you get talking about why you're in and when i was telling them about my abscess i showed one lady (i was wearing a top with big floppy sleeves) and when she saw it she said ""ooohhh give me a pen i want to draw a face on it!"" hahahahaa Thankfully she never got her wish!!!
