Today, I woke up with horrible pain in my gut. It got worse and worse, and I started vomiting from the pain. My mom said it was flu and that I needed to "man up." It turned out to be appendicitis, and I'm now typing this from my hospital bed. FML

I second that. I'm sorry, original poster, that your mom wouldn't take you seriously. That's such a serious thing. I was puking so hard the ER the other day that I passed out from it. It's sad how people don't take illnesses seriously. God Speed, Original Poster :-)!


his appendix swelled up painfully pushing against his other organs than burst causing unbelievable pain to his insides. have you ever been driven to vomit in pain? no, now shut your mouth

It's only your appendix, man up op! It's not even a vital organ!

A ruptured appendix can kill you because of infection, internal bleeding, or from plain pain. Sarcasm isn't cool to use on this topic and you can't tell sarcasm over the internet.

@29 - Sometimes, the appendix can become encapsulated after rupturing and the person can live for many months with it like that, possibly not even knowing the pain is from their appendix. It happened to a family member of mine. I think she thought she had stones, but we were all shocked to hear it was her appendix after all those months!
