What is the most epic thing that has ever happened to you?

For me? It's being mistakenly declared dead. Thankfully, I wasn't "dead" for long. The only thing I remember clearly is the look on the nurse's face when I came to. She turned whiter than my bedsheets.

So u r jus stressin about the wedding? If so its normal, its okay.... but when u feel yourself about to get angry with him , try to relax.... let him kno u r sorry.... let him kno u appreciate him... although he is a good man, I'm sure he would love to hear these things..... cookin n cleanin is a full time job too.......... talk to him bout y u depressed, it will help!

I have a very similar story to you mama. Except in mine my csection incesion burst and I started bleeding out in the er waiting room the nurse got me on the gerney and I felt all peaceful I was pissed when I felt like myself again. I'm in the same boat done fighting dieing.

Quoting sherry132:

I had the flu but didn't realize it was the flu. We moved from Oklahoma to Kentucky. In the move I got over tired etc and developed pneumonia in my lower right lung and in the upper part of both lungs. We moved into a horrible little apartment that apparently had a mold problem, but it was supposed to be only for a few weeks until we had a house. Anyway, it was bitterly cold, snowing and sleeting, and I had to get the kids to school. I got behind a truck with bad exhaust and was breathing that in. With the pneumonia and the flu, I couldn't actually smell it but was trying to take deep breaths because my lungs weren't getting enough oxygen. 

I took my daughter to school and my son and I went to Burger Kind so I could get him breakfast. While I was there the manager suggested I go directly to the hospital which was across the street from Burger King. I took my son to school, 8 miles from the hospital, and then decided I really needed to be checked. On the way I was breathing exhaust from another vehicle again. By the time I walked in the ER I collapsed. My right lung was seized completely open and full of carbon dioxide. My left lung was only working at 60%. 

They rush around and load me on a gurney and rush me back. Before they could get me on the table, I passed out completely. There was a lot of yelling and I could tell people were freaking out. There was beeping too, a horrible long beep that they wouldn't shut off. Then it got real quiet. Just this wonderful warm peace. I was so happy there in that peace and love. 

Then I felt the shock, the pain, them pushing on my chest. Then I felt the peace again. Just when I thought I could finally rest, the next shock came again. Someone was yelling my name. I heard my ribs crack, I felt the needle go in my chest, I wanted to scream but couldn't get a breath to scream. Everything was spinning, and spinning, and I wanted so badly to go back to the peace, where I didn't hurt. 

When I finally got that breath I felt like I had been robbed. I was so angry. In those minutes, I never had a thought about my kids, parents, husband, no one. I just wanted to be in that peace. I've been fighting death my whole life. I don't want to fight anymore. I have felt that peace. I just don't want to fight dying anymore. 

Quoting Earth_Mama90:

What happened if u don't mind me asking



Quoting sherry132:

Actually being dead for more than three minutes. They had to resuscitate me twice that day. They almost called it when I took a real weak breath on my own.

You'd think I would be grateful but if anyone allows the doctors to use paddles or does CPR on me again, I'm going to get even when I get over the broken ribs and sternum.

I got drunk in Reno with this tall ass Margarita and ended up going to a sex shop afterwards, there were two lesbians in there and i had gas from i guess the drink, and had a silent but deadly fart, and did it while walking by the lesbians... i actually was able to hold my laughter, and when my ex smelled it, he said holy shit those bitches stink ;) everyone couldn't handle the smell, left the store and i laughed in the car saying it was me. He said omfg that was the most epic fart ever...

Being diagnosed with cancer at 37.  I had been so sick for so long that the diagnosis actually came as a relief.
