    First time you pee in a bottle is the first time you live

    But yes, if I were you I would definitely try to understand the source of the heart palpitations. They can be a sign of...a whole lot of bad things. Not to aggravate your anxiety ;)

    when I had to pee in the bottle it almost overflowed

    it was several years later before I realised you could stop peeing mid stream

    even if they just listen to my heartbeat

    aw man that sucks :(
    hospitals are the worst places :(

    anxiety disorders can be dealt with though, i had one when i was a kid/probably still have one but i went through therapy and stuff to learn to cope with it/should probably go back to therapy for a refresher course.

    some sort of sedative i imagine if you were having palpitations and an anxiety attack
    they'll probably try to put you on anti anxiety drugs

    so you'll either feel like that all day every day
    or like a zombie
    i felt like a zombie

    it was so terrible. i didn't have any feelings whatsoever

    When we were on a school sports trip, a guy I know went up an asked the bus driver if he could pull over on the side of the road so he could pee. The bus driver said no, so he said "okay then I'll just piss in a bottle", and the bus driver was all "yeah sure you will, whatever". So he did, and filled the bottle to about a quarter of an inch from the top. Then the bus driver pulled over and got all angry at him, then he reminded him that he had told him he was going to and it was his own stupid fault. It was pretty funny.

    I haven't been to a hospital since I was a tiny little kid.

    I had pneumonia.

    They gave me medicine that tasted like bananas.

    just reading it made me immediately try to stop the pretend stream of pee from coming out
    like it's an immediate reaction when i read about someone not attempting to do it.
    so weird.

    The last time I went to a hospital was at the age of seven for something

    It was a hospital in Russia. They may have experimented on me.

    All I remember is my gran bringing me pancakes.

    Just cause you can stop it midstream doesn't mean you're not delaying the inevitable though.

    Important lesson to be learned there.

    I know we've had poop threads before, but I don't think we've ever had a full pee thread? Could this be the start of new territory for SE++?

    speaking of poop threads
    when i was a kid, i ate too much junk food so i had to go to the doctor to get poo taken out of me because i was so constipated
    that was an interesting doctor's visit.

    You know, I've had pneumonia maybe three or four times, and now I'm thinking maybe that's why I hate bananas

    Also hospitals suck. Even good ones, where the doctors are chill and know what they're talking about - you're still sitting on the world's least comfortable bed with a needle in your arm watching reruns of Roseanne while the world's smelliest old person farts in the next compartment.

    You know that feeling when you've had to hold in pee for aaaaaages, then finally get to let it out? So good.


    Ugh having an IV or other thing stabbed inside me for a long period of time seems horrible. It just makes me think of like... leaning on it wrong and ripping the hole open or shoving it further in or something and uahahgahgugghhhhhhhhhh

    ok i spent a lot of time typin up the story i got autologged out for inactivity, postin this so my story doesnt get botp

    edit: alright ok story time

    so here it is like 3:30 am im on the reading chillin and maxin eating some pringles, when all of a sudden, bam, i feel a weird irregular heart beat

    this has happened before but this time was different, i could feel my heart just go fucking faster and and then i started freaking out which couldnt have helped

    so once gaain its 3:30 am i fucking thrust open my dads door and yell "HOSPITAL 911 CALL HOSPITAL MY HEART"

    as my dad is throwing himself out of bed i check the mirror and i am fucking incredibly white, i have rosacea for an example and all of it was gone

    so my dad turns on the bathroom light to get a look at me while im muttering and freaking out "hospital 911 call" and hes like "youre scaring me youre pale white and your lips are blue oh god go get your shoes" so i get my shoes and cellphone just in case and my dad gets his shoes and we go downstairs to the car

    now my experience in the car was probably the worst experience of my life

    my hands start going numb, my right hand is on my heart trying to make sure im still beating, and were fuckin speedin out of the parkiling lot right now, i rolled up a window and my dad is like "DEEP BREATHS BREATH CAN YOU BREATH OH GOD DONT DO THIS TO ME DSAVE HIM" and this numbness is now covering my entire hands and movin up my arms as we're in the street barreling to the hospital

    now this numbness in my hands means I CANT FEEL MY HEARTBEAT ANYMORE OH GOD and my dad puts his hand to my chest and hes like "ITS OK I CAN FEEL IT JUST BREATHE DEEEP PLEASE GOD DONT DO THIS" and this numbness is in my feet now and also around my chestt, so now its my chest and hands so i cannot feel heartbeat at all and im constantly asking my dad "IS IT STILL BEATING" and hes like "YES PLEASE JUST BREATH TAKE DEEP BREATHES MOVE AROUND JUST"

    im like going "oh god oh god im sorry im sorry ill start believing in you again i dont want to die I DONT WANT TO DIE"

    the numbness feeling is getting stronger too as we finally make it to the hospital after like driving through 3 red lights for like 9 minutes

    we fucking speedwalk right into the emergency entrance and my dad talks and i get put into a wheelchair just muttering to the nurse" cant feel anything so much numbness my heart is beating so fast"

    anyway skipping that part i put on the gown and everything and lie on the bed and get hooked up some machines and get those little tube things in my nose that provide oxygen while the nurse asks me questions and shit

    i gradually start to feel better after talking to the nurse, i talk to the doctor, then i talk to the nurse again and i go give a urine sample and then i go back and get hooked up to the IV with some relaxation drug and am just told to chill as she gets blood samples for results with the doctor

    the results take 1 hour to get back so im just sitting in the bed:
    1st half hour twitching like mad trying to breath normally
    2nd still twitchin like mad but feeling better psychologically

    anyway then the doctor says all life signs are normal, blood sample found i need some potassium supplements so i take those nearly coughing them up

    and then finally for the next 20 minutes till the doctor gets the diagnosis and eveything im pretty ok got a heart beat ranging from just 75-105 now, and the twitching has finally stopped

    then i get the diagnosis and unplug from everything and we leave and here i am


    the doctor said that im really fucking thin and that the distance between my heart and my lungs is so small, and that i should pretty much stop drinking anything with caffiene for the next couple months at least, then we got a recommendation for another doctor to check with in 2 days

    few years ago I was in the hospital getting a mole removed off my neck. Family has a history of skin cancer so I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    One second I was waiting in line to pay, next second I was in the emergency room with my skull cracked open.
