"A person whose life is devoted to the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification." Straight from a dictionary. If you have the Internet, you can easily find out word definitions. No need to ask here and look lazy and helpless.

#11 someone who is hedonistic essentially lives their life solely for pleasure and pleasure alone. There is more to it but that's the gist.

yes 23 i agree, but also you should know that it is thousands of dollars to get an ambulence, which insurance rarely covers...

19- Reasoning may lead to the conclusion that OP did not necessary type this while the hallucinations were occurring. And I know that the first person I would call with a fever or hallucinations would be my mom. OP's mom should have attending to her and THEN made an executive decision whether to ca 9-1-1 or not.

....19 you do realize that it takes some time for the stories to be modded and posted right? and that the site editors/moderators/monitors/what ever add that 'today...' so op is probably well on his or her way to being healthy

i am an er nurse, and so you know... a fever is almost never considered a medical emergency, unless you have other health problems, are extremely young or extremely old. they would give you Tylenol and advil and tell you to go home and laugh at you for being stupid enough to go to the hospital for a fever and then charge you several hunded dollars.

35 not in Canada medical bills are payed for by the government the only thing you have to pay for are advils :)

Yeah dipshit. "today" is just for the flow of the web site. This bullshit could of happened two years ago.

can't believe ppl can't read it says her mother checked her out ...... and then said she was hung over and just wanted attention you ppl do know what hedonist means right???? and the 911 and hospital comment is sarcasm .... if your grown enuff to drink your grown enuff to take care of yourself ..... all your mother can do is check you out at that age it's not like she is 15 and under

@86, a high grade fever can certainly be considered a medical emergency. especially a persistant one that presents with hallucinations. fevers are signs of many other conditions, even a simple infection. op may not necessarily need to go to the hospital, but a doctor's visit might be called for.

Well if it was sarcasm, you really need to learn how to write with it, because Internet sarcasm and real life sarcasm are different...

and for an ER nurse I am appalled that you would think that if a patient were hallucinating as the OP said he was that it isn't serious, especially with a high fever. you're the ER nurses that my unit can not stand because they can't get their head out of their asses. you probably are one that when you get a psych patient in, you roll your eyes and then ignore them until they are moved to the psych floor. anyways - yes I do agree with you that a fever is not a medical emergency, but a high fev

Your mom has only one job. Taking care of her kids. Even if it was just from a hangover, its stupid of her to refuse to help. Especially if OP was at the point of hallucinations.

It wouldn't be an FML if the OP was just hung over. And I've had some pretty horrible hangovers, but never have I hallicinated because of one.
