I'm "Special"

So when I was put in the hospital I was asked if I had any allergies. "Yes!" I'm allergic to Benadryl. I needed the Benadryl to keep me from reacting to the chemo they had begun. I begged them not to give it to me as it makes me COMPLETELY loopy.

Guess what? They didn't really believe me and gave it to me anyway. I don't remember much from that time period but apparently my nurse asked my friend if I was "special". "Special"!?!

At least she could have had the decency to be PC and say, "mentally challenged".

Not my best day!

Oh, bless! ... stop it now, you're making me laugh... Maybe they should write that in your notes?! No, not the 'Special' - the being allergic bit! Or maybe in future when they ask an important question like 'are you allergic to anything?' they should actually take the answer a little more seriously! Honestly!!
