You can be as detailed as you like, or not.
Had Diphtheria when I was very young. Also had the measles and chickenpox. I'm likely not immune to MMR even though I've been repeatedly vaccinated. Should have frozen to death a few times. Mom got hit with a fucking snowplow while pregnant with me.

47 years on this twice accursed rock, a 6 way bypass at the age of 32, a category 5 hurricane (and several smaller hurricanes) rolling directly over my head and the aftermath of that, incarceration a couple of times, a little over a year of heavy LSD usage, 30+ years of smoking.

I remember the black and white tv days haha.

Lets see, the three that stick out in my mind...

I was snuck up from behind, knife to my neck and robbed. Had to deliver a pizza to the hood at 2am. Hell, when he grabbed me, I thought it might of been a friend, and because I have a deaf ear, I didnt hear 'em the first time, was kinda laughing, and I said what. Thats when he tightened up on the knife so I could feel it, and I looked at him, and he said "give me the money muthafucka". He snatched what was in my pocket and took off. I was more mad about it, tried looking for him for a couple months, never found him.

Another time I was working for a used car lot as a detailer. Had to follow the boss to pick up one, and the damn van barely had any lugnuts on it. Im following him on the interstate and hes speeding ahead, its pouring big time, and a gust of wind off a semi started me fishtailing. Couldnt control it, I spun around, was facing oncoming traffic that could barely see me because of the rain so hard. Big truck went off in the median to avoid me. Finally the rain let up, Im shaking like hell, and cars finally stop, so I could turn around. That was crazy.

The scariest situation I was in was the first time I went backpacking up on a mountain, miles from anyone, and I was solo. Slept in a 1 man tent, which aint shit. Looked like a coffin, but smaller. Im laying there that morning about to get up, when something heavy comes running down the mountain at me. I think its a deer. I hear it getting closer and Im thinking its gonna run right by the tent. All of a sudden it came right to the tent that it kicked it, then it took two swipes at the tent with my face a lil over a foot from it. I could see the shadow but that was it, but I knew it wasnt a deer, and looked like a bear. So I grabbed my pistol, and gave a half scared, half trying to scare it scream lol. I knew you were suppose to be loud. Well it took off, and quiet. I gave it a minute, then opened the tent door where it was swiping real quick and poked my head out, it was gone. That was damn crazy haha.

I've been shot in the neck with a pellet rifle pumped all the way up before too. I was sparring with another kid. Had to surgically remove it. That wasnt that bad though, just felt like someone plucked my neck real hard. It was when the other kids said they saw blood squirting out that I realized what happened haha. Years later I found out it was one of the older teens. He said he was sorry, that he meant to hit the other kid haha.

A few overdoses, some big falls off rocks, a few car crashes, a gun to my head, suicide attempts, river swims, angry girls with knives, being to close to trains, being thrown out of boxcars, falling from trains, hypothermia, pretty much the usual shit that life throws at you. Oh, well except the gun fight in an LSD lab, life doesn't throw that at most people. I was just there to buy and the some folks tried to rob the place. I was 16.

I survived being 3lb 9oz at birth. Spent the first month of my life in hospital in a humidicrib until I reached the required 5lb to be released.

Two severe car accidents. One at 5 - thrown from the back seat onto the floor. VW beetle car a write off. Second at 8, day old peugot that crumpled. The back seat was pushed in over 6inches with me strapped to it.

Severe kidney infection at 12. Why get the flu when you can get a full blown kidney infection that leaves you bedridden for weeks.

Hepatitis at 20. Spent two weeks in hospital waiting for complete liver failure, while my immune system fought the infection. Was fully recovered and immune within 4 months. (Doctors told me that I'd be in recovery for at least 18mths if I ever fully recovered).

Had a 54hr labour with my first son. Followed by an attempted forceps delivery, which became a vacuum extraction, requiring complete reconstructive stitching of my internal walls.

Cancer cells on my cervix. Removed by loopal diathermy.

Two twin pregnancies, both with c-section delivery. One with tubal ligation, resulting in staph infection behind my ovaries.

I survive constantly with rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, osteoarthritis, achilles tendinitis, golf and tennis elbow, stenosis of the neck, supercalcification, spurs, sciatica, fibromyalgia, asthma.

And I survived being a smart arse to my parents when in my teens. But only just.

a half cracked open melon/head when i was 6 years old...no details on how it happened just didn't listen to my parents and everyone else that warned me not to do something and i did it any way. It was truly stupid enuff said. they wanted to put stitches...i had a psycho fit where they couldn't calm my ass down enough for it and my parents didn't want me to be sedated for whatever their reasons i can't ask them as they are dead now so...i had my head all bandaged up with that white shit name isn't coming to me for almost 2 months. that's when i started having a few blackouts a year YET doctors couldn't find anything wrong with me. Yeah ok fucking idiots.

Chicken pox twice 7-8 the first time, second around when i was 14. been pretty fortunate health wise since then other than several nasty flu's, dehydration, pinkeyes twice...

What do you mean by blackouts? You blackout like a drunk person, fainting? Pls explain, if you don't mind.

I assume so.

Concussions fuck you up, I've had two. You just kinda sit there and watch your world go dark at the corners then slowly go dark completely, but your too "tired" to do anything but watch it happen. It's freaky.

That’s happened to me a handful of times but without the concussion part? The worst episode was bad enough that I kinda thought I was dying. I was at a concert, completely sober. Hands started tingling, felt like all my blood dropped into my feet, extreme nausea. I tried to tell my friend but I couldn’t really make myself talk? My vision got darker and darker, and it sounded like everything was getting further away. I tried to fight it but it was impossible I don’t remember after that. My friend said I was dead weight and my pupils were gigantic. I don’t know how long I was out but he said he was shaking me and I was completely unresponsive. When I “woke up” I might’ve been on the ground, I don’t remember. I was somewhat disoriented but was able to walk after a few minutes. Felt sick the whole way home. Bizarre.

Sounds like you had a panic attack.

I always wondered what it was like to have a concussion, my son had one once but he was too busy complaining about his dick hurting from the pelvic fractures to say anything about his head.

That’s what everyone else says but I was not feeling any fear or anxiety or panic, at least no more than my usual amount? It was pretty much all physical sensations. It doesn’t happen often, maybe like once every other year or so, if not longer.

Gyro, I agree, could have been a panic attack but also sounds like a huge drop in blood pressure. You should buy a home blood pressure thingy and test yourself periodically. Have a friend test you if it happens again. I've been surprised at my results. I've been told I have high blood pressure, and it made since to me cause when I get "worked up" I feel like my theist is closing due to an outside force. Think of an inflatable arm pillow for children around your neck being over filled. I check my blood pressure, extra low as is my heart rate.

Black out's can come from low red blood cell count ( low Oxygen )
and also come from low blood sugar and in any case if you are having problems should be under a Doctor care- - - - - - -

Good advice Haze.

Thank you.

I have low red AND low white blood counts. Yay!

They say it's normal for me so just go with it.

Double yay!
