Today, I got diagnosed with stomach ulcers. They are very painful, and I have been throwing up blood. On my latest trip to the toilet, I was heaving and the pain was making me beat the floor with my fist, the toilet lid decided to come crashing down on my head, giving me a minor concussion. FML

I work at a hardware retailer. For just about the same price as plastic ones, you can get massively heavy ones. Most of which would have no problem causing a concussion if it fell on you with all of its weight. xD

She said she was diagnosed, so it's likely she already went to the doctors. But there are different types and intensities. I've also had ulcers and they were very painful but I was not near death by any means.

Edit: The comment changed! D:

To everyone saying "a toilet seat can't give you concussion": you can get ceramic toilet seats & lids. I'd still say she's possibly exaggerating her story, but it is possible.

And to #35 - having a concussion is not the same as having amnesia. Especially when it's only a mild concussion. You can still remember what happened.

to be honest, it's possible the OP went to the hospital and was released. If what she's throwing up has some blood in it, but not like monstrous amounts, there's really no reason for her to be hospitalized.

since when do you have to go to the hospital every time you bleed? It's only if you're having uncontrollable bleeding that you should go to the hospital, and the OP had already been diagnosed and probably given medication for it, so there's no need to go back to the hospital.

Because when you have BLEEDING ulcers they've reached the end of the mucous lining in your stomach and hit actual muscle wall. If it eats through enough, the ulcer can perforate and you can get sepsis from the bile leaking out into your abdomen and all over your organs, thus eating away at them.

It's horrifically painful, and needs to be properly treated. Some bleeding ulcers are so bad they need to do an endoscopy and cauterize the ulcer before it has the chance to rip you open.

Speaking from experience. Sucks majorly.

I'm going to have to say that I highly doubt this one. As someone who has spent a good majority of the past few years throwing up into toilets, I see absolutely no way that a toilet lid could hit you hard enough to give you a concussion. Sure it hurts like a bitch (I've had it happen, actually) but it takes a lot more force for a concussion.

but FYL anyway, OP, cos of the whole stomach-ulcer thing...
