3 Things I Don't Like About Hospitals


1. When I'm in one. (I passed out once after going to see a family member after major surgery.)
2. Needles. I always get poked with a needle for something when I'm in a hospital.
3. The gross, depressing-green color they paint hospital rooms.
why do they paint hospital rooms this yucky green color? It does not make you calm..it makes you depressed...

I do like that we have hospitals to help everyone who needs help though! I admire people that can handle seeing blood and all kinds of things that just make me want to pass out.

I don't really want to write this post. I don't want to write a depressing, "oh, I had to go to the hospital" post, because there are people who are in the hospital for serious and much worse things than my little concerns.
So...yesterday my heart was feeling weird. I've been feeling a little "weirdy" for a few days. Felt like someone wash pushing on my chest or something and some other "not-normal" symptoms.
So after I posted my blog yesterday is started getting worse. So I called urgent care...the lady freaked me out saying if I have chest pains I need to call 911 and get to the hospital right away. I didn't think I was that bad, so I just drove to the hospital- Jordan (my son) came to help to be the big brother-babysitter for me. (CLICK HERE TO SEE my KANDEELAND blog for our other pictures we took to kepe ourselves busy)
Good thing he didn't have school (spring break)...he helped so much when I had to get my chest xrays and all the other test they had be do, and needles I got poked with. (ugh, not a fan of seeing blood- especially my own, when it's not inside  my veins)

But they did have these cool lights that looked like blue sky...

 I stared at this sunflower light after my cell phone died and I had nothing else to distract me while I waited for more random tests...
Well, I did look at how silly the pain rating scale was...I think they needed a "12" that showed someone screaming, because I'm sure just a sad face with tears isn't good enough for some people who are in real pain! ha ha ha

Long hospital story short...
I am home now...
I have another doctor's appointment next week...
I won't bore you all with all they said...
but the doctor did say...the amount of time I sleep is not enough to keep someone going and that your body will start lighting up your control panel saying- hey we're not working right like this.
He said I'm suffering from exhaustion and lack of sleep....this sounds silly because tons of people are exhausted and don't get enough sleep.

Well, I knew that. I could've just self diagnosed myself...I just didn't want something to be wrong with my heart...since some of my family has some funny little heart issues.

so that's all I've got....I'm trying to rest and I didn't blog last night like I normally do (as you can see by this late post)...I just went to bed...

I love you all, and don't worry about me...I will be fine...I do always love your support and love...your comment make my day, make my heart feel warm and hugged, and put a smile on my face,
love from Kandee

PS. I was just gonna write it on my kandeeland blog- because I write about my "daily life" there everyday, and I thought, "I don't wanna write about this"...then I thought, "well, it was a  part of my day"...sooo just write it anyway. Then I thought: "well, shoot, if I just write it on my kandeeland.com blog, people might worry if I post it on facebook, because no one really read my kandeeland.com blog as much....so here you have my post I didn't really want to write. I promise it will be back to fun, beauty, style, cool or funny stuff

huge hugs, kandee

Hi kandee,
I am a clinical research assistant and work at a hospital. I give patients a pain scale test, but I wish we had ones with the silly faces! Because I always get asked what the numbers really mean.
Hope you're doing ok!

Kandee- you don't have medical insurance, I'm sure that was so expensive! How much did that all cost you?? I HOPE you feel better honey, rest up! Lots of love, Ruby Jensen.

Get well soon kandee and take rest. Nothing in this world is more precious than a life. So health comes first. Take care

lizzie said...

You're young. But you still need rest. Super true!!!! Do it for your family. For your skin. Hahaha. But seriously, rest is more important than exercise for your long term health. And I want you to be around giving us all your great beauty advice. Where would we be without your wonderful tutorials? Sweet dreams <3.

Dear Kandee, wether u don't sleep enough our u sleep too much u can have heart problems, plz try sleeping more often, ur way too young to have heart problems, ur kids need u and we love u ♡ u can at least skip blog posting day so u can sleep more often, I'm pretty sure ur healthy blogging would be able to kick more butt because they already do! And you would be able to blog for longer in ur life, and please woman.. Go to sleep early! I know it's hard, and I know u know this, but if it's too late, we can wait :)
Love u always, and take good care of yourself ♡

Winona Hernandez said...

Get well soon and as everyone else says I agree, get lots of sleep

Please take care of yourself and feel better soon! I love your videos n blogs but can live without them if it means your not taking care of yourself and resting. I'd much rather see one video a week from a healthy happy kandee than a week full from exhausted kandee. You are such an inspiration and I'm sending love and prayers your way!

Lisa Verduzco said...

I am glad you are ok. You are a funny beautiful creative crafty mom!
I can understand how scary that was for you and your little guys. Get some rest please. Today I my eye liner finally looked good because of you! You are a fantastic make up artist.
Thank you Kandee

Dear Kandee, I'm sure that you will be alright. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts. That happened to me before, its caused by indigestion and stress. Many times it can cause heartburn too. Take Care and God Bless you!!!! ;)

Amina said...

Hi Kandee, I've been a fan of yours for ages. Not only do I work in a hospital as a pathology lab technician/phlebotomist, I also have to attend hospitals all the time as I have chronic kidney disease and sickle cell thalassemia. I sympathise with you as hospitals are never fun, especially when you're waiting around for hours! Please please take care of yourself, rest is so important and integral to your health. You were right to get it checked out, it's better to be safe. Get plenty of rest and sleep! Please sleep!

Lorena00716 said...

Dear Kandee,
I hope you feel better soon.
Just wanted to say I admire you so much for being so brave and optimistic.
The world is a better place thanks to you.
Sometimes our body is telling us to take a break and to look after ourselves. I cannot say that is your situation, of course.
Thank you for sharing part of you with us
