What this topic be too risky

<p>For my college essays next year (i know this is very soon) I was considering discuss my stay at the hospital that occured back in october. The problem is I don't want the adcomns to think that I have a chronic health problem. Truth is what I had was a temporary condition in which can easily happen to some people. </p>

<p>How should I approach this? Should I give the name of the condition in the essay so they can look it up if they like?</p>

<p>EDIT: Sorry about the title. I was in a rush.</p>

<p>i would give the name of the condidtion and add in the essay the fact that you have risen above this challenge, that youve learned to deal with this obstacle etc. I was going to write about something having to do with medical issues but the way I wrote it I was told it was kind of depressing and a "pity me" kind of thing. If you can show both a struggle and a positive light then you should try it. but let others read it to make sure it conveys what youre really trying to say</p>

<p>I see. I'll make sure I incorporate that. It's just my main worry was if they looked at it in a negative way just because I've been to the hospital. I'm scared of assumptions.</p>

<p>If you're really worried maybe you can focus on another topic but then have your hospital stay as a part of that main focus? Drafts and drafts and drafts will get you there good luck</p>

<p>If this is a non chronic and curable condition name it. If the name sounds too medical then briefly explain it in plain English without being graphic.The reader should not have to look it up. If naming/describing the condition will have the reader more focused on the condition than than on what you have to say then just mention that you were in the hospital and make light of the condition you were in for. Lots of people go to the hospital for benign reasons. A hospital stay can provide you with lots of good material that has nothing to do with the reason that you are there.</p>
