1. What was the most sick that you've ever been? My appendix burst when I was 13, and no one knew about it for ten days. I went to the doctor the day it burst, but he was looking for symptoms of a yet-unburst appendix, so I went home. My mom told it was probably just menstrual cramps (or maybe cysts) and I should suck it up because I'd get them every month. As I'd only had my first period almost exactly one month before (terrible timing, huh?), I believed her. I floored the doctors when I finally went in and got a CT scan. I was sent to surgery immediately to insert a drain for the poison, stayed in the hospital for a week and at home on antibiotics for another week (with a foot-long IV in my arm that took an hour to get in at the hospital O.o), and then had the shell of the appendix removed three months later.

2. What disease are you afraid of getting? Anything that degenerates my mind, particularly my memory, like Alzheimer's or even amnesia.

3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses? Medicines don't bother me at all, but I don't take them unless I really have to. (I refused morphine through that whole appendix thing, actually, because I just didn't feel I needed it. I am HARDCORE :-P). I had always been perfectly okay with needles until that foot-long IV I mentioned above. Now, I'm still not overtly afraid of them, but when I went to give blood last year I think my body remembered and rebelled; I passed out before they even got the needle in me! It was ridiculous!

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad? No, not at all.

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it? Maybe for a period of time, like a year. It would get old after a while-- but the only reason I hate being sick is my lack of productivity, and if I'm earning money than I don't have to worry so much about that.

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been?
I've never really been horribly sick unless you count the time I had the Chicken Pox when I was. I never even been in the hospital for anything.

2. What disease are you afraid of getting?
Hmm... Anything that requires penicillin cause I'm allergic and that would suck

3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?
Nope. I used be anemic as a kid and had to have my blood drawn every week and I'd watch them do it, fascinated.

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?
I hate doing to doctors and haven't been since I had that really bad sinus infection a few years ago.

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?
Depends. Is this $1000 for each shot or each month? (either way would probably be yes considering shots don't bother me)

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been?
It seems like I have a really freaking good immune system, I rarely get really sick. The worst was a bad urinary tract infection, I had to go to the emergency room because the nausea was so bad.
2. What disease are you afraid of getting?
Mental diseases that make you lose your memory and other cognitive abilities. Also, sexually transmitted diseases that aren't bacteria.
3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?
Medicine doesn't bother me, but shots do. I can handle them if I'm looking, though.
4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?
Depends on what kind of doctor it is and why you're going...
5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?
Heck no. The flu sucks.

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been?
--I think it had to have been when I was 7 or 8 and I caught the flu...I wouldn't eat, was always throwing up and I felt sore and achy all over (-__-)

2. What disease are you afraid of getting?
--AIDS or any other STD...

3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?
--I don't think so, I'm more of a baby about the sickness rather than taking medicine or shots to make me feel better

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?
--No...I guess if you don't have any health insurance and you have to wait for like 3 hours just so a doc can say "here are some antibiotics" and then go home...I can see why it can be bad (>.<)

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?
--If you mean one month, two times...then hell yeah! But if you mean for twice a month for like...a year...maybe not.

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been? When I was 10 I got some viral infection which made me feel like I was part of the living dead. I only remember it cause I was satying at my dad's apartment (which was on top of a brothel) and when it came time to take me home he had to carry me out of the main door. He got a tonne of wierd looks from people on the street

2. What disease are you afraid of getting? aids.

3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses? Nah... I take pills without water

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad? Nope. I don't mind it at all :)

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it? HELL NO! I've got my second flu in as many weeks and I hate it :(

What was the most sick that you've ever been?
I overdosed on a very large amount of Tylenol a few weeks ago and nearly wrecked my liver. Other than that, I have a tendency to get bad Strep.

What disease are you afraid of getting?
Diabetes / Alzheimer's (my grandfather had both).

Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?
I have to get blood tests done a lot and I always freak myself out way more than I should. And I'm just lazy when it comes to my meds.

Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?
Not really, I have to go to the doctor a lot for counselling. I just get embarrassed when I haven't taken my meds like I should.

Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?
Considering I already get sick at least once a month, I would love to get something for my anguish.

1. Once when I was 11, (I think it was a stress breakdown or something but except I don't know what a stress breakdown is) I got so fricking damned sick and was aching all over and somehow ended up going to hospital for a day (seriously) even though it was just like this really bad fever and headache, which could just possibly have been flu. BUT it was disgustingly horrible cos I didn't want to do anything at all, felt too bad to do anything :(

2. Anything that makes me lose my memory, or being paralysed from neck down

3. T___T no? lol. I think the last time I screamed for an injection was like when I was 7 or something LOL

4. Depending. Some doctors can be nice (fantastic personalities!), and also depending on what you're going for...

5. Give me that money first then I'd consider! :P

1. What was the most sick that you've ever been?
When I was a kid, I had Urinary Tract Infection. I was in the hospital for probably four or five days. I was so weak, I couldn't even sit up by myself. My mom was able to stay in the room with me the whole time. Whenever I needed to go to the bathroom or something, she had to help me up and lead me to the bathroom. I couldn't even keep solid foods down. But the last day I was in the hospital, my health just did a sudden 180. When I woke up, my head was no longer pounding and I got out bed myself and went to the bathroom without any help, and to the doctor's amazement, I was totally hyper. So they released me. But one very weird and ironic thing was that the medicine they were giving me to kill the infection, gave me an ear infection. Go figure.

2. What disease are you afraid of getting?
Cancer. It runs on my dad's side of the family. So I've been trying to reduce my risks by being a vegetarian, not smoking, and being as healthy as I can get.

3. Are you a big baby when it comes to taking medicine/shots for your illnesses?
No. I have a tattoo and I give blood when I can, so getting shots doesn't spaz me out like they did when I was a kid.

4. Is going to the doctor really THAT bad?
No. Infact, when I was a kid and I would fake an illness to get out of school, I didn't mind going to the doctor. The waiting room was always quiet, they had a TV and coloring books, and the doctor was always so nice. He's been our family doctor my whole life.

5. Would you have the flu twice a month if you were paid $1,000 for having it?
I'm in need of money, but I'm not willing to suffer to get it.

Ugh, Norwalk virus. I had it last winter. Having had the stomach flu a lot as a kid, Norwalk virus was far worse. *twitches*
