Scariest day of your life?

Sorry, I have no idea why this posted 4 annoying times. I hit the button once. Just once.
I want to hug all of you for a very long time, in my long life I have not met such a courageous group of people. A kiss on the forehead and a long nana hug to all.
@Sunny My mother is still at the same location. As twisted as it sounds, I love my mother but was always angry with my father. My mother was certifiably crazy and my father was a dick who didn't stop her most of the time. Anyway, I am happily married woman with one daughter. I have broken the cycle. Life is good for me. Hope all of you are there as well.
Yeah I can't read these. Sorry guys.
The worst moment of my life was handing my sweet 5 day old baby boy over for surgery, knowing he had a 50/50 shot of making. Looking back I can see the positive of the 50 to make it unlike a 10 or 20, but in those moments I could only think of the loss. We were very lucky and he is fine now.
Much love to you, fellow CDANers. It's amazing to read how strong all of you truly are.
Sweet Jesus people…love, hugs, peace and strength to all of you. There is a hell of a lot of strength in this CDAN crew! I have a few – the day I found out I had ovarian cancer – the day of the surgery to get rid of it(and all my girly insides at the age of 28) The night my roommate tried to kill me and then every time he stalked for the next year until I dropped off the grid and lived "underground" for 3 years. and 9/11.
@Janet296Where is your mother now? Stories like that are why I can't watch the news or read a newspaper without breaking down in tears.You sound like you've made it successfully to the other side. You are a survivor, a warrior and an inspiration to me an othersMay you break the cycle, and live a fruitful and joyous life 🙂
@csproat Thanks. I am fine and survived childhood. My whole childhood was scary. That was just the day I had finally had enough. My life was hell with my parents, but I know there are worse ones out there. This is a bit therapeutic. It feels nice to unload to strangers. I have read the post and group hug to you all.
You are not alone. I just hold on to the thought that we WILL get there….one day.
That is a great someone was looking out for you & your fam story!
Hope you are ok now
Many Hugs Olivia, I cannot begin to imagine your pain.
Finding out I had malignant cancer after a routine operation and having my 1st thought run to my 4 year old daughter and her being w/o me. I'm better now, btw.
The day we learned that my 20 year old son was missing.
The day my then 5yo son woke up and could barely walk. Took him to ER and found out he had a large brain tumor. He had to have emergency surgery. Some of it's still there, but he has annual MRIs now to watch its progress. He was very lucky.
A simple but profound lesson about there always being someone who is worse off than you.
Peace and comfort to all of you.
A pedophile tried to snatch my then 11-year old nephew. My nephew escaped and ran home safely. Unfortunately, the pedophile also escaped. My blood still runs cold whenever I think about it.
Well what i was going to post doesnt seem so bad now after reading these stories. A big warm hug and a shoulder to cry on to each one of u.
When my 10 mth old daughter had a seizure…I thought she was going to die…scared isn't even the word…It was just due to a high temp and I found out later fairly common…I don't scare easy but I was in hysterics…my heart's pounding just thinking of it again..
My dad is in recovery and doing well. Thanks everyone for the well wishes. These stories are really tough.
I too have Crohn's and take Humira. I've been rather flippent about taking my Asacol (as things are not flaring) but after reading your story, I think I'll be more reliable. Thank you for sharing.
Oh pog, so so sorry!!!!!!
The day my sister was murdered. That plus the next decade .
The day my daughter was born. I honestly thought that either my daughter was going to die or I was going to die.
TracySwingKid, what did you major in?
Honey West – do you still suffer from panic attacks? If not, what helped you?
The day my mom had bypass surgery, I've never felt such stress and fear. Sending your dad good thoughts, Ms. Cool. Been there.
This past Monday, when I had to tell my daughter that her best friend, the man she had loved since she was 12 was found dead. She had already lost 5 friends in the past 3 years and is very fragile. I was so terrified that this would send her over the edge. It hasn't yet, but I'm still terrified.
The day I went into anaphylactic shock from eating peanuts. I was in my 20's, at work, and had no idea what was happening. My co-workers said when the paramedics put me on the stretcher I was blue. (BTW, allergies can come on suddenly. I'd eaten peanuts the day before with no ill effects. So be careful!)
The day my 6 day old son nearly died. Every other day he spent in the hospital after that is tied for a close 2nd place.
Last year the week before Christmas — 2am and my house was on fire. And I had house guests.
On April 9, 2009 I was struck by a pickup truck. His driver's side headlight slammed into the driver's side door. The car was then propelled into a telephone pole. I was cut out of the car. I thank God that my daughter, who would have been in the car with me, was still at school.
I was 7 and staying with my brother at our grandparents (mums side). There was a big storm while we were asleep & when we woke up we found out that the house had collapsed around us. There was one room left standing & we couldn't get out because it was a stilt house & the stairs had gone. I am scared of heights & we got rescued by ladder. The ladder rescue scared me more than knowing the house had collapsed.
The night my roommate's juicehead ex boyfriend came looking for her and her new boyfriend, with a hood over his face and a baseball bat shoved halfway up his sleeve. I was 17 and home alone. I moved out shortly thereafter but it took a long time before I stopped jumping everytime I heard someone outside the door. He didn't hurt me but it still scared the shit out of me.
