Your Worst Illness
# 1 : Thursday 18-8-2005 @ 01:37
What is the worst illness you ever suffered? I have been relatively lucky.

Mine was a jaw infection when a dentist messed up an extraction. The pain was exquisite. I could barely think. I sunk into a sharp depression. It lasted five days and, looking back, I think I should have been hospitalised instead of being in my appartment in Galway by myself. After that, I vowed never to spend a period of prolonged illness alone.

The second worst only lasted one day - I woke one morning with a bad back. But I couldn't move for the pain. I imagine that anyone who suffers from regular intense back pain must be dealing with a very cruel blow in life.

I passed a kidney stone once. It was so sore, I asked the ambulance driver to slow down over the speed ramps.

You've not experienced pain until you've passed a kidney stone (or a baby) (apparently).

Wow, Dirha! Nothing I've ever had comes close. Hell of a thing to go through.

A bad jaw infection which took 3 months to recover from. An abcess in my throat which landed me in hospital. A bad asthma attack which landed me in the same place.

Nothing too serious. I had scarlatina as a baby and fractured my ankle 6 times but I was a clumsy child. Hopefully Il never have anything as serious as Dirha.

Thank God and touch wood I've been lucky, the worst I've ever had was I had the measles, chicken pox, and mumps all at the same time when I was 12 and I spent about three weeks in bed.

Worst I've ever had was the same as Cheezy's - passed a kidney stone. The pain was so excruciating I passed out in the emergency room at beaumont. When I came round they had shot me full of morphine, so it was probably worthwhile.

Twas nothing compared to Dirha or Loosefit though

Well for me I got blood poison because I did not get an injection after getting paint in my leg. Dam hospital never gave me a tet jab. I was so lucky my leg nearly had to be amputated, spent two weeks in hospital. It was two weeks of hell.

Had Hodgkins Disease at the age of 17 which required a course chemotherapy. Was very lucky, as soon as I noticed the lump I went to the doctor and was operated on within 2 days.
