The room at the hospital was really cold inside

I hate having to go to hospitals, regardless of whether or not I’m the patient or the guest.

My mother spent years in hospitals when I was growing up.

She has severe Crohn’s disease and even had a stint in the hospital at one point with a bunch of blood clots. My mother is like a cat with nine lives, but I don’t know how many she has left now. Crohn’s disease has led to bone degeneration throughout her whole body. As a result, she has broken her back in several different places. And after a massive leg break, she can’t even walk either. After all of this exposure to hospitals, I don’t ever want to walk inside one again. But unfortunately I had a kidney stone last week and it got so bad I had to go to the hospital. They kept me in a room that was way too cold for my liking. I think the air conditioning was set to 68 degrees there because I was shivering. I asked them for blankets on multiple occasions but it took from 4 hours before someone would bring me one. I kept shivering on that bed wondering if I could fall asleep despite how cold it was. And they kept the lights on even though I asked them to turn them down. I hate how cold they keep the rooms at the hospital. It makes it really hard to be comfortable when you’re shivering in the hospital but. Hopefully I won’t have to go to the hospital again for a while. I don’t care if I’m a patient or a guess, the hospital rooms are just too cold for my liking.
