    That sucks, Jasc.

    My doctor's trying to upsell me on having my tonsils removed, since I get strep a lot.

    Pros: It might reduce how often I get strep.

    Cons: EXTREMELY painful procedure. Might result in viral sore throats, which cannot be treated with antibiotics and could be "as frequent"

    Gee, let me pick...

    When I was little, I used to get serious sinus and chest infections (of various styles) at least twice a year. It seemed to wear off as I got older, but there's a chance that the sinusitis is related to the unknown infection on my left ankle that made my life a living hell for two years - an unknown autoimmune disorder that causes localized white blood cells to join the other side and overthrow my otherwise functional systems. The doctors couldn't pinpoint any known disorder, so eventually they just said, "Well, be careful."

    It seems like a silly thing to have typed up now that I've done it, but basically the idea of untreatable infections of any kind is completely horrifying.

    No shit. for around two years my knees and ankles would swell up and hurt like a motherfucker. I figured it might be gout or rheumatoid arthritis, and I went to the doctor for it. Some blood tests later they find out its neither, and the doctor says, "Okay, if you get one of those acute flare ups again, call me right away so I can get a sample."

    They haven't acted up since.

    I'm wondering how long she can go being in infant form.

    I suppose she's not immune to the age related causes of death. Metabolism is still wrecking her body, even if at a slower rate.

    She's really getting the worst of both worlds.


    Unless you count someone wiping your ass for your entire life a big plus.






    wait


    of course!

    Underdeveloped because she's still essentially a toddler, though. It's blowing my mind.

    When she's 70, she should be ready for kindergarten.

    She'll be collecting social security, too.

    It's kind of like Benjamin Button, only instead of being born old and growing young, she was born young, and has to spend her entire life a shell of a human being who will never know she is a prisoner in her own body, doomed forever to blissful ignorance, shitting herself and sleeping 16 hours a day.

    Last time I was in the hospital was when my mom took a nasty fall and (we later found out) fractured her L1 vertebrae and crushed the disc right above it or something like that

    Worst, most frightening experience of my life, and not just because I was worried to death about her ending up paralyzed or something

    ER waiting rooms are pits of misery and death

    had the same experience again and had to go the hospital again

    diagnosis: anxiety for sure this time, got a prescription for atavine

    so both times i went to the hospital were because of panic attacks it seems, had the beginnings of one on the way back to home after the 2nd hospital visit but im fighting it off pretty well so far

    gonna stop typing cause this is making the attack a little harder to fight

    yeah it does. if you have a disorder then odds are it's not going any time soon. the hard part is accepting that fact, and to not get depressed about it. i still struggle with it a lot. like for example, i specifically have pretty bad self esteem, so I get into this thought process that says I'm only doing this for attention, so that I can get pity and have others take care of me.

    again i don't know if that's you, but I'm just using it as an example of why it's important to try to accept it.

    and I just want to add, you can't just hope it doesn't happen. the best way to deal with panic attacks is to go out and do things. don't get in over your head, but constantly push those walls. 8 years ago I wouldn't leave my room, and now I can bus all the way to the other end of the city! it's not going to magically go away, but you have to learn to control what you can.

    Man I've been though that (the crushing of your vertabrae). It is fucking terrifying when you are 16.

    you telling me its just part of the attack really helps tho thanks

    One of the most charismatic, athletic and all around best people I know has panic attacks

    Don't think it's the end of the world

    When I was about a year younger than you I lost hearing in one ear and was told if water got in there it could cause an infection bloom and kill me.

    It just becomes same ol' after a while. It sucks, but you'll live
