“I was asked to view a video on how to give a shot to myself. I told the nurse
I already knew how to give myself a shot and that I’d seen that video
before. I said ‘no,’ I do not want or need to watch it again. The nurse said,
‘we have to follow the rules.’ I could have said ‘no,’ again, but sometimes it
is easier to ‘be good’ when I’m sick than to put up a fight. It was easier
to sit in pain and watch that video than it was to argue any more. How
I was feeling in the moment was less important than following protocol.”
