I’ve been in hospital for 2 days now with an obstructed bowel. They said it wasn’t that bad when I came in but now nothing they’re doing seems to be working 😥I’m scared, I miss my kids, my tummy really hurts and I just want to go home. I can’t sleep here, I feel anxious and I am so, so tired.

So sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly. I know just how frustrating it can be when there doesn't seem to be any improvement or end in sight particularly when you have kids you want home too. A lot of wards have patient WiFi these days do you have a tablet and headphones you could watch netflix/prime on to kill some of your time. When you feel scared and anxious it's also easily to get overwhelmed on doctors rounds and no sooner have they given you information you've forgotten it all, I found it useful during my last hospital stay to note down any questions I had while I was awake at moments like this and then jot their answers down during rounds so I could look back on them and properly digest any information in my own time. I really hope you are on the mend soon.

Its really scary but unfortunately you can't change the situation so try to change your mindset.
I was in hospital for a few days last year and tried to think about it as a mini holiday 🤣. I had face packs, books I'd been meaning to read for ages, a TV show to binge on my sons tablet. It still sucked but it was more bareable once I accepted it and found some ways to distract myself.

Top tip, get someone to bring you your home pillow.

I hope you get better soon!

The problem is the pain, I can’t relax because of it. I feel scared and anxious and helpless and I don’t feel like it’s getting any better. If the pain would go I’d be able to sleep but I’ve slept for an hour total over the last 2 nights because my stomach keeps cramping and it takes my breath away.
