A nurse burst in this morning, declaring; ‘it’s time to change your bedcovers!” Those words instill fear in any patient, storing contraband in their pillowcase!
Oh crap, oh crap, OH CRAP! I rolled onto my tummy and began frantically searching. Pillow 1- nope!. Pillow 2-Nope!
Are they under my sheet? Are they in my pockets? Have they fallen down on the floor!
I begin stripping the bed myself. They think I’m being helpful, but I’m not. I’m almost frantic!
Then boom, tucked down the side of my mattress I finally find them.
You can take away my straighteners, you can take away my clothes, you can take away my dignity, and freedom, but you can never take away…………………
