Being admitted to hospital is no jolly ride. Nobody enjoys it and let’s be honest, it ain’t easy to fill up the days whilst lying there… been in myself more than once and the loneliness hits hard!

Last admittance, was for a total of 5 days and boy if I cried! I did have a laptop but the pain was too much for me to move around and handle the laptop. Too much in pain to walk to any common room to watch TV… so how does one fill in time?!

During my first stay at Mater Dei Hospital there was still a TV service with every bed. I could watch TV in the comfort of my own bed. But alas, now there’s nothing to do!

This issue was also highlighted by someone on Facebook… and everybody agreed hands down!

So we ask… is it high time we rethink this?
