    1. For a heart problem, surgery and check-ups following surgery - probably about 15 times.

    2. A&E for a broken arm as a child

    3. Ear surgery as a child as I had skin grown over the eardrum, once (not sure if I had appointments there before or after)

    4. A&E for tripping over a tree stump and falling on my face (ouch!) as a child

    5 A&E for falling off the bed and landing on a toy which caused a large cut on my back (I was quite the problem child wasn't I?!)

    6. Visiting an old family friend in a psychiatric ward.

    7. Visiting a family member following their own heart surgery.

    8. A&E following a minor car accident (I was fine but was in early pregnancy so was really worried about miscarriage)

    9. 4 times for additional antenatal check-ups.

    10. 2 separate visits to triage before being admitted to labour ward.

    11. Give birth and for a few days following birth.

    And I'm not sure how I forgot surgery. Because it was new year / bank holiday, we had to come back up the new few days for dressing changes.

    To visit family - many times, estimate over 50 times but maybe even more as my stepdad and papa don't keep well a lot

    Me - about 15 times at A&E. Most serious was for when I had pneumonia and then when they thought I had a blood clot - turned out I just seriously hurt my back exercising a few days before

    I wasn't born anywhere near a hospital.

    I have been in hospital though:
    1. 1994, adenoid removal.
    2. 1997, release of prepucial adhesion and removal of potentially cancerous moles.
    3. 1997 part 2, release again of prepucial adhesion (stuck open).
    4. 1997 part 3, circumcision at my own request.
    5. 2013, visit to check status of sinus.
    6. 2013 part 2, had sinus checked again.
    7. 2013 part 3, blood test preparation for surgery.
    8. 2013 part 4, turbinates cauterized.
    9. 2014, allergy test concerning persistent sinus trouble. Left without results; had seizure during proceedings so they were cancelled.
    10. 2015, hearing test. Turned out my hearing is better than perfect which is why I struggle to focus on speech.

    once when I spilled boiling water and dropped a kettle on my feet. Got third degree burns, still got the scars. After that I had to go in again to have an operation on my toes, only a small one to fix how ****ed up my nails got in the burning. I've been pretty lucky health wise

    Never for myself, but for family members I've been a few times. I spent a number of hours waiting in A&E after my sister fell over our back garden fence and smashed her top lip open. Then numerous times when a family member had a major health problem :/

    Saw my granddad in hospital last year, seen a family friend in hospital a couple of times, went for a blood test recently, been for ear test or something, been for a couple of other problems too; enough times to not have kept count I guess
    But I've probably only been there for something imminent when I cracked my head open at about 5 (I assume I went there, don't remember..)
