HYDRATION!!! I have actually been treated like a drug seeker and turned away when the ONLY THING I asked for was HYDRATION!! I explained my disease and the fact that I can't take in enough liquid. The doctor said "your chart says you have chronic dehydration".. I said "yes, and occasionally I need some help getting enough".
He sent me home and said to drink some water. I was admitted 2 days later after passing out and busting my head open!! A freaking bag of fluids!!! That's ALL I needed to prevent an 8 day stay in the hospital (not to mention the physical AND emotional pain that brings). It's absolutely sickening!! They should be charged with ABUSE or NEGLECT!!!
