One of the most annoying parts of going to the hospital is having to wait around to get a prescription filled. I have prescriptions that I take essentially every day, so that means I have to go to the hospital and wait to have them filled just about every week. I have the day written on my calendar, and I usually feel that it will never be a decent day. Waiting around in a hospital is terrible enough with sick people coughing and screaming little children running around. On top of that they don’t have wireless access, so I can’t browse the internet while I am waiting around. I usually just sit down and think about what’s going on in my life until I can pick up my prescription! However, even just resting and thinking is taxing when it’s incredibly freezing inside the building. My hospital must have industrial strength air conditioning equipment, because every time I go there, it feels sort of like I’m getting hit in the face with artic air. Even when it’s snowy and freezing out I can count on our hospital to have its air conditioning equipment running as high as it can go. Because of this, I’ll dress as warm as possible to pick up my prescriptions. People definitely look at me funny while I am wearing a sweater and jeans in the summer, but I can’t risk freezing in the air conditioning at our hospital. I suppose the air conditioning is set high for some medical reasoning but I’m not really sure. What I know for certain is that it makes me feel entirely uncomfortable every time I have to go there. Air conditioning equipment is most definitely a blessing, but when used excessively it can quickly turn into a curse.
