For most of my childhood I was in and out of the hospital. For me this was hard as meant I couldn’t do things like go to school.
One of the things I did like was making friends, who I still keep in contact with today. Some of these people became like my second family.
The great thing about the hospital was the children’s hospital had a special fairy garden I and others could escape to when needing a break. This garden was my safe place and I sometimes wanted to sleep out there. The lady that made it is a real fairy and she helped me so much.
There was also a starlight room with games for people to play. We would also get famous people who came to visit. I met sports people,actors and even politicians.
All these things made it more bearable and easier to cope.
