63, wrong comment & first, she didn't make fun of anyone. Second, dyslexic people aren't crippled. Lastly, it could very be she had the q flipped into a p... so what are you on about?

I have chronic hiccoughs; I've gone to several specialists about them (to no avail). I have ZERO control over how loud I "squeak" and have never met anyone who claims that they can control the volume of their hiccoughs. I'm never even aware that there's about to be another one, so how can I be expected control it? OP, I feel your pain. The height of my hiccough issues was during a period in my life when my job required I frequently take business calls. Thankfully, most of the people I spoke to (mostly reps) were understanding and found it amusing.

Troller I'm not sure why, but I find your profile pic hilarious. Needless to say, only one of us can have it. Now go on with your day, I won't be in your closet waiting for you to fall asleep. ;)

Hiccups and Hiccoughs are actually the same thing, just spelled differently. They were originally known as hiccoughs because in olden times doctors believed them to be related to coughing. Hiccup is the more modern spelling.

Really YDI because manners dictate you should have left the room when the hiccups started. Just like if you had a crying baby. The baby cannot help crying but only a fool would let it go on during a funeral. It's about the family of the deceased, not YOU.

Then the friend would have accused them of being rude for leaving and still accused the poor woman of trying to ruin the funeral. Besides that, babies often cry for a reason and will stop after they get what they want but some people can't stop their hiccups no matter what they try and can only wait for them to disappear. Plus, depending on where they were sitting, it might have been difficult to leave their seat without disturbing quite a few other people.

No he's not spot on. It was rude to stay while hiccuping. Has nothing to do with looking bad or not it is that fact that it is respectful to the deceased family and the people trying to listen. The friend might have just gotten angry at whatever happened but everyone else probably would have appreciated it.

And it's common curtesy to leave the room when something like that is happening. People can hear that shes hiccuping, they'd think its more rude to stay then to leave so people can hear the eulogy.

I hate the hiccups. Sometimes they're really painful. Don't worry OP, just apologize to your friend when she's calmer. It's rough what she's going through, anything will upset her at that point.

You'd have to be a pretty stupid person to actually pass out while holding your breath to stop hiccups. Most people know when to start breathing again, even if the hiccups aren't gone yet. Just take a deep breath and start holding your breath again.

you shouldve excused yourself or minimized the sound. but try n be patient with your friend. i doubt they meant to lash out at you like that. their mom just died... expect odd behavior for a little while

Well, OP, as a fellow frequent hiccupper myself, it's just polite to excuse yourself from the room to go some place private to place your head in between your legs while holding your breath till they are all gone . . . or until you pass out - which ever happens first. Either way, your friend would have thanked you for finally bringing some peace.

This is what you do: Get a glass of water, put your top lip on the side of the glass furthest from you, lean forward, and drink. Instant cure. I promise.

Hey, I am in nursing school, so please bare with what I'm about to say, but hiccups are caused by a spasm of the diaphragm because of respiratory alkalosis (breathing too slowly). This pretty much means you're retaining oxygen: the spasms are your bodies attempt to retain more CO2. So when I get hiccups, I breathe into a paper bag; that way I'm breathing in a higher concentration of CO2. . . So, there's my tip of how I get my hiccups to go away! :)

Ops friend just lost their mother its a hard time for him/her, she was just trying to take out some of her anger/sadness, it was wrong to take that out on op but it didn't mean that ops friend was a bad friend/person.
