Today, while giving my final speech, a bump that had been growing on my arm popped. Pus leaked through my white dress sleeve, and it smelled like death. Everyone noticed. FML

I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe next time check with a doctor to get it removed beforehand or try popping it at home. :/

Sorry Op , that seems like the worst thing that could happen! Hopefully not everyone noticed what actually happened or you can blame something else

Awe that sucks OP!! But hey!! It could have been worse!

That doesn't make it better.

I hope you get a bump up on your grade op

Sorry OP, that's embarrassing! On the bright side, now that you're done with that class you might not see any of those people again!

it could have been an abscess. they can form anywhere and when they pop, they pus. please do not try to pop it yourself because it can cause an infection. I have had one before that turned into a fistula (I have Crohn's disease). next time go to the doctor and get it checked out! :)

She could pop capillaries in her arm if she tried doing it herself and they often don't disappear easily..The doctor is the best call or finding a suitable ointment to treat it...

You had a what?! And it was caused by Crohn's Disease?! I ask because I also have Crohn's.

#29 I have a fistula...an abnormal connection between two organs that forms a "tunnel". it usually starts with signs of an abscess and fever. just look it up and it will explain more.

Honestly, that really doesn't sound too good..

Oh my goodness how mortifying! Is everything okay?

I'm sure it was more obvious to you than anyone else, but next time go to the Dr before it reaches that point.

Final speech? Were they going to execute you? In that case smelling like death wouldn't be so bad. Kinda sets the mood.

Sorry OP, I do agree this sucks but there is so much you could've done to avoid this situation - YDI

Show it anyway

if I could unlike this comment more, I would.

Oh come on. Could've had it removed, didn't have to wear a white dress, could've put a dressing on it for the evening... This could have been prevented.
