So as some of you may now, doctors found out I have high blood pressure and am producing too much cortisol in my body. They're trying to figure out what the cause is, and I have to go to the hospital for 2-3 days so they can take blood samples at different times of the day.

I have two questions:

1.has anyone ever done this before, what should I expect etc.

but more importantly:

2. what should I take to amuse myself with? hospitals aren't exactly video game arcades, and I'm definately not gonna study when in the fucking hospital. also, I doubt they'll let me take my guitar with me

That sucks bro

You can amuse yourself with hearing your orchestrated track (in 2-3 days )

You can also amuse yourself with hitting on nurses and reading stories for kids. The latter suggestion will work well in combination with the former

Shouldn't be much more than taking blood samples to be honest. Just don't be surprised if they wake you up at stupid o'clock in the morning to do it. You may also be asked for urine cortisol levels (much better for Cushing's Disease), undergo the dexamethasone suppression test (Cushing's Disease) and an ACTH stimulation test (Addison's Disease). But maybe at a later date- I know dexa and ACTH testscan be done at the same time, and I doubt they'd do it at the same time as a blood or urine cortisol test.

In other news, take a Mega Drive into the ward.

Aww that sucks, get well soon. I wonder how hygienic/sucky/much more attractive nurses are in German hospitals. Probably better than Australia

I had to stay in the Lough Erne Hospital (highest MRSA rate in the UK) for a few days a while ago. Because I'm under 18 I had to stay in the kiddies ward.

Take it from me I have spent 3 weeks in the hospital in the last year. Here's my advice.

1. Bring a laptop, the hospital will have free internet. This will keep you sane
2. Bring some junk food, chances are all the food they serve there will be fat free, sugar free, taste free crap.
3. Don't take shit from the nurses. You don't HAVE to wear their god damn gown, even if it is "Hospital Policy".
4. Catch up on school work(or job work depending on age) so that you don't have to do it when you are home.

Take a hat and see how many times you can "drop" it and have the nurse pick it up before she realizes.

Flirt with the nurses.
I have to get blood tests every couple of months nowadays, I swear to god each and every one of them is lonely and horny. You don't even have to try.

Ah, That blows. Well last time I went to a hospital, I was too busy trying not to puke over myself ( and trying to puke on the nurses), don't recall getting bored.

I hope the nurses are nice and that you feel better soon.
