    Chlamydia which turns out isn't that bad and is fun to share. The cure is only a handful of pills.

    I had an esophageal tear a few years back. I had bronchitis, but opted not to quit smoking because fuck the doctor, I do what I want. Turns out, that was a bad idea. Lucky Strikes and bronchitis don't mix.

    One time in the army I contracted some kind of virus that made me vomit and diarrhea everything I ate or drank. I was unable to eat anything for 4 day and shat so much my anus started bleeding from wiping too much. When is was over my stomach was so small all I could eat was one egg and half a slice of bread before being full.
    The worst part was that the muscle you use the push out shit is the same one you use to force out vomit. So every time I sat on the toilet I would also puke on the floor at the same time.

    My body manufactures kidney stones and I've gone through the ordeal at least a dozen times since I was 12 years old. I have to maintain a healthy diet and very low caffeine intake to avoid it, and even then it's a coin flip. Due to this, I have developed a very high pain threshold. I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy.

    This shit. I was on holiday at the time, so I didn't go to the doctor for way too long and eventually had to endure a solid week of the worst pain I've ever felt. Picture getting kicked square in the balls every few seconds for seven days with absolutely none of the numbness that I imagine would eventually happen after having your balls actually smashed to a pulp.

    What is that a tumor? The pain you described is very similar to mine. Kicked in the balls, stabbed in the abdomen, and stabbed in the lower back every 10 seconds for a week straight.

    It's a bitch aint it?

    Nothing as serious as a tumor.

    I've never had kidney stones, but if they're anything like this I can easily say that I'd rather break every bone in my body than endure them.

    On a scale from 1 to 10, it's a 15. If you'd rather break every bone in your body than endure it, then yes, I'd say it's similar.

    I think like 2% of people develop them throughout their life, and I'm one of the special 2%ers who get them chronically. I cry like a bitch every time.

    The only thing that springs to mind is my appendicitis. I had it when I was like 9-10, so I barely remember the experience. I just remember that whenever I tried to eat anything I would instantly puke.
    I had to get surgery to get my appendix removed, and now I have a nifty scar.

    Well earlier this year I got type 1 diabetes. basically my immune system permabanned the islets of Langerhans cells in my pancreas meaning I no longer produce my own insulin so it's a lifetime of injections for me. to be honest, the whole business sucks donkey cock on a scale you can't comprehend. I actually wished that it had been cancer instead of this. at least that would have probably been decided whether I would live or die by now.

    fun fact: before christmas '11 I weight in at around 16 stone. when I went into hospital in march this year I weighed 12 stone 12.

    Yuck. Why would I stray from what's working for me?

    No, I just looked down, gave him a friendly squeeze, and felt very pleased with myself.

    There are some days when it's really great to have a penis. Today is one of those days.

    If I got that it would let it kill me and not treat it. Diabetics should be banned from driving or anything else that puts other people at risk.

    Assuming overdoses or being hit by cars don't count, it was getting E. coli.

    Wasn't attempting to rile you. Seriously. Diabetics are ticking time bombs that should be banned from the roads. I almost got killed by a guy in a Suburban who went into diabetic coma and ran over me.

    I agree that those who don't keep it under very tight control should be banned. in the uk if you have more that 2 episodes of severe (i.e unconcious) hypoglycaemia in a year then they take your licence away anyway though.
