I work at a hospital and had to cover a sick nurse's shift last week. I worked 14 hours straight without a break, on top of having been up 10 hours prior to that. Either you got totally duped into letting them admit you, or you're an abnormally weak individual...

Yeah, i mean, plenty of people around the globe go to clubs and come back home at about 8-9:am after about 24 hours without severe exhaustion. FYL OP, it must've been very rough for you, sorry it was that terrible, but you're an aunt now so i think it was worth it

You now what, i don't sympathise with OP anymore, way to weak. I was awake in a hospital for 48 hours, looking after my father who got surgery

6- I ACTUALLY, and unfortunately, know the individual in question in your profile picture. It's kinda weird when you know someone who is an internet sensation for a picture taken of them when they were younger. I use 'Internet sensation' rather loosely by the way...

Wow. OP would not fare well in the military. Sleep deprivation is normal and expected. I've seen guys pass out in the ditch while doing a section attack or pass out walking.

Whoa, whoa...wait. You sister GAVE BIRTH and you are admitted for exhaustion? Quit being a damn pansy ass, she spent twelve hours pushing a damn baby out of her vagina, and YOU'RE exhausted? Goddamn softie.

12 hours... So. 24 hours in a day most people only get 8 hours of sleep a night(recommended and on average) so, now, I'm not very good at math but I think 24-8 is 16. Meaning just about every day people are awake for roughly 16 hours working or studying etc. So, that being said, why did this get pushed through?

I wasnt saying anything or blaming the hospital. It was a question. Didn't you see the question mark? And I know that not all FML's are someones fault.

I think you made a legitimate point, zerolce. The fact that OP stated it was the same hospital at the end of the FML would seem unnecessary and pointless unless it was b/c the hospital had caused the exhaustion making the statement unfortunate and ironic.

WTF? OP was not even the one that gave birth. 12 hours, really???? If you can't stay up for 12 hours without becoming "exhausted" you have some serious health (or mental) problems.

18, my husband is an EMT and before I gave birth to our daughter he was on a truck for 48 hours and ran the whole time. He spent 72 hours at the hospital with me on about 5 hours of sleep. OP sounds weak. There are many people in the healthcare field actually doing stuff for 12+ hours on little to no sleep.

I was saying that because some people get really exhausted faster then others, so 11 is being uncaring, by coming to conclusions without knowing everything. Like for me, I get exhausted faster then other people do

84, but why would OP be dehydrated? It's a hospital, lots and lots of water. Plus, with the information given, it seems ridiculous that 12 hours WITH, not even being, someone in labor is enough to be admit for exhaustion. While working at a hospital you get to see a lot of babies, some are even full grown, doesn't mean nurses aren't caring-just means they won't always feel sorry for you, especially if they've pulled longer and more stressful shifts than a labor bystander. It's not like OP had to do anything during the labor.

Or, 12, OP is a pansy ass. Most people are awake for more than 12 hours EVERYDAY. I've even gone without sleeping for two days twice and I wasn't the tired at all. OP is just a complaining crybaby that can't handle staying up for 12 whole hours.
