Today, while working at a children's day camp, one of the kids who is allergic to peanuts went into anaphylactic shock. I ran and grabbed the boys eppe pen. I was holding it backwards so the injection went into my hand, causing me to pass out and both of us to be rushed to hospital. FML

Not panicking is a good thing. Also, paying attention during the first aid training. And it's "epi pen", for the record.

Too bad you can't spell anything else....

Kinda weird how you managed to get epi right but you couldn't spell anything else right :S. (202)

I'm sorry, but you failed.. FYL D:

This is very unfortunate. Hopefully the both of you are ok.

FYL? How about the kid's who was dying because you didn't know how to use the right side of a pen? My brother's deathly allergic to peanuts too and he's had several close calls, so I can empathize with the kid, but seriously, this is an F HIS L, stop feeling sorry for yourself

At least you tried. #4- Unless you have been around highly allergic people before you're not likely to know precisely how to administer the medication.

I wasn't aware that you could pass out from too much epinephrine (aka adrenaline). Interesting...

I'm completely allergy free, have no friends who're allergic enough to own an epi pen, but even I know that adrenaline can kill you if it's overdosed. It causes your heart to speed up. What do you think happens when you're pulse is going crazy? Yeah, you pass out. Or die.

207 when u have too much adrenaline u pass out then u calm down and it's "your" by the way

209, You have no room to talk! Your writing you as u. ...dumbass...

Well, at least you kept the kid company #6, I believe too much adrenaline is similar to being bitten by a black widow. I'm not too sure though

Today, I was stupid and they sent me to the hospital. FML.

hope that kid died, he doesn't deserve to live if something as harmless as penuts can kill him

That was uncalled for. Cunt.

IIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTT. U SUCK AT LIVING
