All this talk about being sick has got me thinking about the worst sick times of my life. I'm trying to crown a "worst sickness of my life" but am having trouble narrowing it down. It could be the morning (all day) sickness that plagued my life to the point where I had to have medical intervention. It may have been the strep throat I had over Thanksgiving break in college one year. That had me planning to remove my throat by myself with no anesthesia.
Pretty much everyone has been at that "I can't take it anymore" limit when the sickness is so overwhelming that death really does seem like a nice option. I'm just glad that my illnesses have never lasted more than a day or two. Some people have to endure terrible illness for much longer. I don't even want to try and imagine that.
When have you been the sickest?
