It's actually illegal here for a pedestrian to cross the road on a red light, so I always have to look and check for police officers before I step out. And some traffic lights here take up to five minutes to change to green for pedestrians, and then gives them about 10 seconds to get across before it turns red again. It really isn't nice for people with walking frames and such things.
well many many drivers think pedestrians are a lesser species..... they should not be allowed to cross the road. I gamble with my life somethimes, and my husband is convinced i will die crossing he road. Every time i get to the other side, i am liberated. I have a sad life.... ha ha
I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to doctors and medicine. I don't like them. I was in a lot of pain but I have a pretty high tolerance. I also was taking numerous herbs and supplements. I started vomiting and, my husband says, I was very very pale. He dragged me to the hospital. I thought I was just dehydrated but my temp was 103.4 and my blood pressure was 90/60. They did a bunch of tests and then told me that my appendix had burst and it because of the amount of toxins in my body, it most likely burst a few days ago. Then the nurse simply stated, "you should be dead now".
About a week after I was born I got a horrible cold and was in the hospital for a couple weeks...obviously I lived but ever since then I've had asthma. Later, when I was still a baby, I almost choked to death on a bagel. Since I don't remember it at all, I think its actually pretty funny
I had a near miss in a car wreck. I was inches away from the person who was killed and had injuries myself; but I've never thought of it as "I shouldn't be alive." I've always thought of it, "Well, if anyone was 'supposed to be alive', obviously, it must be me."
Life and death is such a chance. A freakish chance. I was born dead. My mom could not give birth for 4(!!!) days naturally and they did not have a specialist to do cesarean so they waited until she started getting really sick. My twin brother was dead too . They revived me but not my brother. I hate doctors. My poor mother. She survived death of her first son, could not survive death of her second one,again freakish chance. She lost some of her mind, became a little crazy.
