Everyone has experiences that they wish they could forget, and definitely would never want to go through again.


Once, when I was in middle school, my pants ripped in two after falling down the stairs. It was both painful and embarrassing, and now I am always extra careful when I go up the stairs.

Redditor u/jnhdavid got people to talk about their lowest moments by asking… What's an experience you don't ever want to go through again?

10. Kidney stones are no joke. 

"Kidney stones. Took me 6 days from when the discomfort into pain started but felt like 6 years. The pain was causing me to nauseated which doesn't mix well with pain killers. Ultimately had to get admitted and passed them the night before I was to have surgery."

9. Post-appendectomy bathroom breaks are horrific.

"I hated having to figure out how to poop and pee again for the two weeks after surgery because I felt like was going to tear out my internal and external stitches."

"All of this. I didn't sh!t for a week out of fear."

8. Public bathrooms are bad enough.

"This summer my group ate something very bad before taking a night train that was leading us to take the airplane home. 10 out of 16 we were had bad diarrhea/vomit. Fun was not had. We felt like dying."

7. Pooping in public sucks.

"In my first grade I shat in my pants and I didn't even have an underwear. To spice that up there was a fire drill in which I had to stand without shorts among the whole school. Most Embarrassing moment of my life"

6. Nothing like the movies.

"Being stuck in a mental hospital. It's not like in the movies but it's the feeling of being so close to freedom yet so far away."

5. I can't help but agree.

"The entirety of middle school. No thanks."

4. Colon health is important.

"Colonoscopy. The surgery itself isn't that bad, it's the prep that sucks"

3. Heartbreak is never easy.

"I was in a relationship for almost 3 years. I know it wasn't perfect and we had some issues but overall she made me really happy and I thought what we had was so special. Then just one days she says she wants to break up without giving me much more reason than "it's best for her". It really does make you feel abandoned, and since she was pretty nice about it I feel like the only person I can blame is myself. 3 months into the process and it's not been a fun time."

2. Anywhere but Boston!

"Driving in Boston.

I swear, they designed their roads with purposeful malice."

1. The miracle of life.

"Watching my wife have a C-section.

Twice is enough."

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
