A photo a day – frustration and boredom

I had a hospital appointment today. When I arrived it took me over half an hour to find a parking place and it was a long way from the hospital meaning I had to wheel through  the rain to get there. By the time I got to see the doctor it was a full hour after my appointment time. The consultation took less than two minutes and the outcome could have been confirmed by phone: I need to have three more procedures. You would think there would be a more efficient, customer friendly way to delivering health care wouldn’t you?

I shot this photo at the main entrance of the hospital because it reflects the reality: that you the patient are entering a massive institution with its own rules. Hence the myriad of signs that bombard the visitor. Imagine what it’s like trying to make sense of this is you are a little slow on taking things in?


Bu the above photo doesn’t really reflect my experience. So my Photo for today isn’t the above index but an expression of it as experienced – see below.

    The altered image expresses some of the frustration but is quite restrained really under the circumstances!
