Cancer, Leukaemia specifically (APML) when I was 18, it was my welcome to adulthood present I suppose but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and it did come pretty close to killing me

Whooping cough, apparently immunisation can lose effectiveness before a booster shot. Lots of involuntary gasping (whooping noise) and coughing just before puking. They wanted to admit me to hospital but grandmother a nurse talked the hospital docs into letting her arrange to care for me at home.

Caught mono after a wild night on valentines day with a group of girls (yes i went there). It had caused fever like symptoms for a whole month and was bedridden. No energy to get up or do anything. Getting back to school was really difficult with all the make-up work.

Well, I almost died from a ruptured ulcer, which was really painful, by the way........I'm not sure that counts as "sick", after it happened I was mostly drugged up, knocked out while getting operated on, drugged up some more and sleeping...

I actually felt worse when I had strep thought, a urinary tract infection and walking pneumonia all at the same time. I could hardly function

Well, I was in critical condition after being stung all over my body by wasps as a child after getting too close to a nest and nearly died from what I was told.. I've also had a bad case of pneumonia and a high fever. ..

Never been sick, other than common flu. I have been in some life and death scenarios though, injuries and so on.

Hmm. I had strep throat, tonsilitis and bronchitis all at the same time. Don't know how. But it hurt like a motherfather. Like swallowing thumbtacks and glass every 2 minutes.
