This recent visit to the hospital began on Wednesday the 19 night at 10:00. I hate coming here but unfortunately I don't have any other options. I have a cyclic vomiting syndrome among other GI issues. My issue is whenever I come here I'm being judged based off of how I look maybe my tattoos or the fact that I'm young or that I've been here multiple times. But I can't trust you all to care for me. I have a plan of care in my contract or folder and it's like y'all aren't following it or just looking at that and not listening. I tried to cooperate even taking pills by mouth knowing I can't swallow. It's only making the issue worse and I tell them that and they don't care. This is torturous. It feels like my pain is your pleasure at this point. If I keep telling you I'm in pain or struggling why can't they give me the recommended dose versus something that's not working. I'm individual I'm not a piece of paper you can ask that piece of folder how I feel all day and it won't do anything for you I thought our nurses were supposed to be here to protect us I feel like I'm literally being neglected have people rolling their eyes at me saying under their breath when I ask for medication that makes me feel like crap on top of the fact that I'm already sick and have been here for the past 3 days and will stay three more days if they can't get my medication under control. I haven't been able to sleep for the past 2 days because I'm in so much pain my anxiety is through the roof and no one cares. I feel like I'm in isolation this dark room is doing wonders for my depression not to mention the lack of care from your staff. I'm not even disappointed I'm heartbroken I put my health in your hands and it's been taken as a joke hopefully I won't pass away from this. Also no one has come by to clean my room or change my sheets I've done it myself at least twice.
