I’ve always disliked hospitals. When I was younger I even fainted in them. I have visited people in four or five different hospitals in Japan. It’s always a challenge because the hospitals here are very Japanese. I mean there is not much English written anywhere and English is not spoken very often. This week a new sister in our ward had a new baby and I wanted to go see and yet I didn’t. The idea of going to a part of the city that I am not familiar with and then finding the hospital, and patient’s room is always an intimidating process for me. If it’s not too far away and I have time I ride my bike there first so I know where I an going. I didn’t have time this week. I got out the map, checked the train route finder on how to get there.
I don’t know why I worry so much. I should have more confidence in myself. I found the hospital just fine. The new mother looked great and the baby is beautiful.
