- Mood : Ashamed
Wow, didn’t realize that was so long. Sorry, guys.
I’m so sorry that happened to you @985921sqh, I would get yourself seen by a doctor just to be safe Echo, please don’t feel ashamed Echo, I don’t want to see you feeling unwell and having trouble breathing, do stay healthy and take care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally, everything will be OK Echo, keep going forward and never give up, you can do it, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent, stay strong, you are never alone (hugs)
While I’ve had my fair share of choking spells, I’ve never had one to such a degree like that. But I have seen my mother go through that more times than I could remember counting. It’s terrifying.
I can only imagine how scared you must have been, as well as your family.
I would go get checked out if I were you, just to be safer than sorry. Unless you’re starting to feel better, but your lungs undoubtedly took a beaten from that. I’d recommend staying in, resting, and then probably seeing a doctor within the next day if you still don’t feel well.
but ur ok now and thats all that maters
Damn, that’s heartbreaking. The same happened to me too 6 years ago, when I chocked on a clump of meat I had in my mouth. For some stupid reason I wanted to challenge myself to see how fast I could eat my dinner, so I kept on getting a big amount of cooked meat, and the next thing I knew, I started choking. I was holding my throat in agony, and I was trying to get my dad’s attention, he was talking to others. He noticed me and tried to get someone to do the maneuver thing, but it was getting too late. I was about to pass out until my dad told me to drink some soda, so I did just that and the chocking stopped. I was crying in pain and was ashamed of myself for trying to do such a stupid thing. A few hours later and I didn’t accept anything my dad offered to me because I was scared that I could’ve chocked again, so he understood and left me alone for a while. It’s a situation where you think that your about to die, your body is suffering from the limited amount of oxygen it’s getting. You don’t need to be sorry at all, it happened, and you couldn’t do anything about it. I’m just relieved that your ok now, but please see a doctor or go to the hospital if anything else happens. Be strong, and follow @Oliver’s advice. Don’t risk coming to school tomorrow if your still feeling terrible.
Wow, Fading Echo, this was really intense. I’m so sorry you had to go through this! If you are concerned about your body from this I would see a doctor if you can just to be safe. It’s understandable how you didn’t care when it came to the thought of dying, but please be safe and OK because your life is meaningful and valuable
