Almost lost my life last year. Few words but a hell of an experience. Yeah... Nothing to boast about when your body gets completely white and you are about to lose your consciousness. I'm so glad I'm still alive. Lucky for me I can experience this beautiful life.

Getting 2nd/3rd degree water blisters on my back and shoulders when I was in fourth grade. Had to lay on my stomach as much as possible without moving for weeks.

When my mind broke down and attacked itself against my will, caused by regret, and hatred towards myself.

Eh...

Never really had any sort of surgery or serious injury.

But emotionally it was abandoning all of my friends when I moved from Colorado.

I never want to abandon someone dear to me ever again.

Worst physical pain ever? ... One word :cryopexy.

If you ever get a detached retina this is one of the ways they try to reattach it.
Basically they take a freezing gas probe and
jab the white of your eye to freeze burn where the retina has detached.
The resulting scar tissue acts like glue to pull your retina back in place.
Also to help the process sometimes they add in another procedure called
Pneumatic retinopexy.
Which is where they take a needle and suck some your eye jelly out to make room and then inject a gas air bubble
that floats around inside your eye
(it pretty much blocks/distorts the majority of your vision in that eye and takes several months dissolve/disappear )
and is supposed to apply pressure from the inside of eye to hold your retina in place while its healing.

The worst part is,its done while your awake under minimal local anesthesia, which doesn't
help at all and the entire time you have stare at a bright spotlight (which becomes painful in of itself)
above you while trying keep your eye as still possible and the assistant nurse is constantly squirting you in the eye with saline solution so it doesn't dry out because its taped open ,but it still drys out anyway.

The 24 hours after are some of the most painful combinations of deep piercing and dull constant throbbing pain
at the base of your skull and suffocation as your eyes and nasal cavity fill
with fluid and drain down your throat and out of every opening in your face trying
to cope with the onslaught of trauma it just received.

The best part of the entire ordeal is that the process causes some peoples retina to detach even worse (like me)and then you have to have a surgical procedure called a scleral buckle which is even more barbaric, but at least they knock you out for that one.

The moral of the story is protect your friggin eyes because the technology to fix it is brutal!!!

I have had two kidney stones, and while passing those was pretty nasty, it does not get number one. I had a broken wrist bad enough it stopped just short of a compound fracture; still not the worst. I have been shot with rock salt. That can be surprisingly painful, but once again, not number one.

When I was in high school I was playing basketball that turned full contact mid game. I got piled on by several guys and then kicked in the back of my knee. The knee cap ended up on the left side of my leg and one of my ligaments actually ripped a chip off from my bone where it had been attached. My leg was unable to bend and no one believed me, even though it was so big my jeans were stretched to the max from swelling. I had to get up off the floor with one leg locked more or less straight without help while in the most brutal agony I have ever felt. It was not cool. I have even woken up during all three of the surgeries I have had, and none of my after-care pain meds have ever worked for pain for me. None of that hurt as much as what happened to my knee did.

Fryman, yours sounds pretty nasty.

various self-harming incidents. Off the top of my head having bleach get into some lacerations on my wrist would have to be the worse. I definitely passed out.
