Descriptions of how I nearly died 3 times in the last year

Post by Vega » Thu May 19, 2022 11:41 pm

Hi

Below is my description of how I nearly died 3 times in the last 12 months.

1. Eating a meatball sandwich from Subway.

I was eating a meatball sandwich while under heavy influence of cannabis. I was not really chewing the sandwich as I ate it; more gobbling the food up. I ended up with an entire meatball lodged in my throat.

So I couldn't breath.

I started punching myself in the chest and slamming my chest into a door jamb. Reached into my throat multiple times trying to pull it out. Finally got it.

That was awful.

2. Walking to the local hospital to see a mental health counsellor

I had left the house bright and early and about midday ended up heading to the hospital for an appointment. I ended up getting off transit prematurely with the intent of stretching my legs. Maybe 4-5 km of walking on flat terrain. It was boiling.

It was about 35°C that day (or 95°F). I didn't drink enough water. Ended up realizing this as I showed at the hospital. Could not drink water due to heat exhaustion, I guess? Ended up passing out. A paramedic ended up wheelchair-ing me at warp-speed from the psychiatric area to the ER as I passed out.

3. Infection on my neck

I had an infection on my neck.

Day 1-4 was insignificant. I was perma-baked the entire time and the infection just made me feel as if I had a permanent hangover that was becoming continuously worse.

Day 5 I woke up not being able to breath.

Went to the hospital and received 8 hours of IV therapy. And then about 45 minutes every day for 30 days.

I received a needle aspiration biopsy (I think that's the one) and they drained the infection and sampled the bacteria.

Their cultures never grew.


------
The nurses at the hospital are hot is all I can say. Dude, fuck I need to get out more.

I almost died after being reassured repeatedly that my gallbladder removal was routine surgery that would only take like 45 minutes. 5 hours later I wake up in a dark room surrounded by loved ones because they didn't know if my heart was going to stop or not. People there tell me I was actually awake for almost an hour unable to comprehend what was going on.

Yeah.

Medicine can be scary.

I always avoided studying Biology and was more-so into Physics and Chemistry. More controls and fewer variables; at least in the textbooks.

Well looks like you can't be my boyfriend if you can't breath from a tiny meatball.

Exactly, learn to deep throat my massive meat and we can be boyfriend and girlfriend. Or you know, you can die from something like choking on a bit of food. I would rather you stay though.
