Down with sickness



Original poster
Kitti has been very sick as of late, though this isn't the sickest Kitti has ever been. The question, then, is...

What's the sickest you've ever been?
I had what I like to call the "plague" when I was 15. I missed the last month of school and spent the entire summer sick and near dead on the sofa before mom finally took me to the doctor. >> I had to take antibiotics for weeks and still have hearing problems in my left ear.
Hmm well I had hypothermia once and almost died from that, all I had to do was go to sleep. :DD IT WAS SO TEMPTING!
Sickest I've ever been, or so I'm told, is when I nearly died when I was two to Pneumonia (I think that is how it is spelled)

But other than that I dont' get sick....well other than my normal allergies come spring.
I once had an abscess in my jaw, my temperature rose to a good 43-44 celcius, and if I hadn't been hospitalized right away, I would have died within several days. I got really lucky then. I've still got a hole in my jaw where they put the drain through.
I got dengue once, skipped a month of school, fun times.
People seem to be sick all the time here, so I'm expecting more posts to this thread :P

As far as I can remember I was sick for 3-4 weeks back in elementary school, but half of it was "WAAAH! Don't wanna go to school!".

Other then that, I usually get a pretty bad cold every winter(mild case of asthma+ice cold air outside=cold).
Sickest I've ever been was when I got dehydrated last summer and went to the hospital.

Fever went up to a high number, shivered like a drenched dog, threw up every ten or fifteen minutes, horrible migraine, numb everywhere... dizziness also accured at times. I wanted to kill myself! >_< Stayed in that damn, horrible, unforgetting hospital from six or seven in the evening to three in the morning.
Dengue part I: age 6
Dengue part II: age 7
Dengue part III: age 8

(I'm one type of dengue away from having dengue-immune blood.. dammit, should have waited for the fourth one so I can cash in)

and then I transferred schools

some really-long-named thingie that I can't even pronounce back then, something to do with my eyes being too sensitive blah blah blah: age 11

Epilepsy: age 16-18

Possible brain damage: 19~ we're still not sure

In boot camp someone brought the flu back to the barracks from Medical. I felt like shit but still had to do the chore of PT.

Anyone here ever done a two mile run with a 105 fever?

What helped was the week before I had gotten my lower wisdom teeth removed and they gave me a bottle of Hydrocodine.
/huggles Orohic tightly/

Around 6-7 years old : pneumonia
~had to go the hospital and stuff. I remember it was really scary x.X

Around 10 : nystagmus (eyes rapidly move from side to side involuntarily)
~started to control it after a while~ now its ocular flutter voluntary rapideyemovement

From like 13-16 : recurrent flu/colds
~like every other week, I would come down with a virus. My immunity was really bad~ :3

-Crazy 103 fever from the summer when I was 13 + homesick in another country
~I used to wake up, eat, cold shower, sleep for like ten days until my dad came and I started to get better (was alone with extendedfamily there)

-Used to faint a lot from low blood pressure when I was 14ish
~that was weird, some sideeffect of some antibiotic I was taking for a cold.

My parents &&doctors say my immune system is weak because I was premature a couple of weeks. So I tend to get sick easily. Old sugar in processed foods makes my throat bad, old chocolates/candies in general, any dust, if I go out in the cold, if I'm near a sick person x) I always manage to catch SOMETHING.

Like when the Swineflu craze was going around, I happened to get a cold. People thought it was swineflu so I had to sit in the hospital for like a weekend until they figured it wasn't and let me go home x3
Sickest I've ever been, hands down, was about a month and a half ago...

Got some kind of stomach virus. I puked/shat like you wouldn't believe. It was so painful, I was wretched...
The sickest I've been is when I got a lymphatic infection when I was about twelve.
I had a fever of about 103 F, I got dehydrated because I had a hard time not puking, and I couldn't help but sleep almost all day for about a week.
Aside from puking each year when I get sick and severe ear aches when I was little...ehh..jaundice and heart murmmur when I was a newborn...Cant think of anything really.

...Does having adhd count XD

Oh and when I stand up sometimes I collapse to my ass or knees, all dizzy and lightheaded. clue why I do that...
I got food poisoning once. It lasted for like 5 days and was probably the sickest I've ever been.

Self inflicted: I drank enough Vodka to kill a horse when i was like 17. I threw up for 2 days straight. This is why, to this day, I hate Vodka with a passion. Yes, even the good stuff.
The sickest I've been was when I had the Sinus Infection in 2007. REALLY sucked. Thought I had the flu but it wasn't. I was in bed for so long, missed class and the worst part was, it happened during a trip to one of the Hawaiian Islands. <_< So I couldn't enjoy it or go out as much as I wanted to.
Aww Sakura I'm sorry you had to sit in the hospital over a stupid cold!! People freak out WWAAYYY too much!!
