Life is hard. Sometimes it's so arduous you can't take another second. Life isn't all about roses and smiles and some days are just too much to take. Death, sickness, loss, heartbreak... it's all part of the journey. And sometimes it's best to share the story and get it out. Because in the end no one is alone in misery.

Redditor _\ripenunderwater _**wanted everyone to share... **\What's the of the worst day of your life?



KEEP ON LIVING!

Went in a clinic for STD testing feeling confident that I'd be clean since I used condoms 100% in all occasions. Found out I had HIV.

Very easy to control. Nowadays if you stick to your medication you won't show any progression or even have a transmissible level of the antigen in your blood.

Not necessarily that bad of news. I worked for a HIV/AIDS prevention task force and we could offer up to 100% coverage of Truvada prophylaxis regardless of insurance coverage. Also i think medicaid covers it too. Theres a lot of options just because somebody going around with untreated HIV is potentially far more expensive than just treating them.

NO SOUND...

On my birthday, went to hear the first heartbeats of my first kid. We didn't hear anything.

LIAR, LIAR...

Now ex husband called to tell me he no longer wanted to reconcile and stop our divorce because his mistress was knocked up. Threw my stuff and our dogs in the car and left town that afternoon.

:(

Today. Watching my dad slowly die in the hospital.

EYE OF THE TIGER...

First Pro fight. Most of my friends (and my SO) came to support.

Lost by K.O. in round 3. Fractured sternum and a few cracked ribs. Threw up in the ring in front of a few hundred people while wriggling in pain.

LIFE IS TOO MUCH...

My older sister took her kids and my younger sister to the park one day. My older sister's estranged husband shows up. They fight. He shoots both of my sisters and kidnaps the children. My sisters died, and a few days later he drops off the kids at his dad's house and ends his life behind a dumpster.

I DO... JUST DON'T!

My mom got married while 5 year old me was at school to a guy who would torment my family for years.

THE LAST BREATH....

The day my mom died. I was alone with her when she took her last breath.

I really miss her.

NOT OK UNIVERSE...

Took 2yr old daughter to pediatrician because she had a lump in her abdomen... thought she was constipated, turned out to be cancer.

SO TRAINSPOTTING IS REAL...

Got a call from my sister and couldn't understand a word she said.

Turns out she "got distracted" from injecting herself with heroin.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
