  • I have always been a straight A student, I used to be the first student in the school (meaning the one who gets the highest grades), and I have always wanted to study medicine. Unfortunately in the last year of high school (grade 12) I didn't get the grades that I always used to get because at that time I suffered from extreme OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), I started feeling that when I was 14, but it reached it's peak between the age of 16 and 18. I couldn't really stay at school, in grade 12 I left school after one month and stayed at home, I couldn't read my textbooks at all, I just really couldn't, the head teacher of my school used to write down that I come for school (even though I didn't), the reason he did that is because if you miss a lot of days in my school, you wouldn't be allowed to do the final exam, he was good enough to do that. And I just literally didn't study anything the whole year and started studying one day before the exams! no one believed that I would pass, because there are people who study for hours everyday through out the year and they fail at the end. Luckily, I was able to pass the exams but I got only 77.3% as a total grade. In order to study medicine in my country or any other country that I could study in, you would have to get at least 98%. So I said, well I will repeat the year again and try to get higher grades, no body advised me to do that, everyone was suggesting that I study anything and that's all, but I couldn't imagine myself studying anything but medicine, so I repeated the year, but of course I couldn't be in school because they didn't allow me to because I have already passed the year. So I stayed at home and decided that I will study alone. But unfortunately same thing happened again, I went into depression and I had a lot of panic attacks and nervous breakdowns! I had anger management issues and that led me unfortunately to the worse thing that happened to me ever which is me being diagnosed with diabetes, at that moment, I really lost hope in myself (temporarily), and I repeated the exams again and got only 81%. So 1 year was wasted without any progress. At that time I was really disappointed and said "you know what I just really don't want to study anything). I really couldn't imagine myself studying anything else but what I have always wanted to study. I wanted to leave my country and study medicine some were else but there was no affordable option for me. And I come from a relatively poor family...

    • So I ended up wasting another year without doing anything!

      But I got really tried and bored for not doing anything so I started reading about Germany and how the education is good and free here and how one can work during college and gain enough money to cover the main expenses without the need of my family sending me anything. So those were the factor why I decided to come here to Germany. I'm now leading the language and I will get into university this winter semester! I will study Mechanical engineering. I honestly don't know if I will ever get over the fact that I wasn't able to study medicine. Lol this is very personal and it's definitely not easy for me to share, but since it was you who asked I thought it would be OK to say this.

  • Last year was not my best, actually it was my worst...
    I had depression, failed Medical Studies competition exam, twice (2 years lost) so my dream of becoming a doctor was shattered, and the night of the result my best-friend died this past June..

  • I don't really have any emotionally painful experiences to tell (at least they weren't exceptionally painful). I mean, when my first girlfriend broke up with me that was really, really terrible but then again... I guess everyone goes through that (like Cat Stevens already sang "The first cut is the deepest").

    But I do have two physical experiences that were incredibly painful.
    The first one happened when I was maybe ten or so. My dad loves to cook and he's very good at it. So one Sunday evening he's cooking dinner for the whole family and he's frying something in the pan. I was standing at the sink and washing my hands. My dad finished frying the food, put it on a plate and - strangely enough - wanted poor the hot oil (it wasn't fat, it was really oil) into the sink. I have no idea why he wanted to do that, it's a stupid idea anyway. He could have just wiped it with some kitchen paper or left the pan to cool down. Anyway... so the problem is that my dad is blind on his right eye and I am almost completely blind on both eyes (the two things are not related, it's just a weird coincidence. My visual disability is due to a genetic mutation before I was born but my dad had eye cancer when I was a baby). So basically we couldn't see each other. And because he didn't know I was standing there and I didn't sense that he was turning around, we both didn't go out of each other's way. Instead he poured all the burning hot oil right over my arm. It hurt really, really badly. Of course I was screaming and crying and putting it under the cold water and my dad couldn't stop apologizing. He felt so terrible for the rest of the evening. I had to wear a bandaid for a couple of weeks and put on a special cream. I had blisters all over my arm, from my thumb all the way up to my elbow. But luckily I was a child and so my skin healed it really well. You can still see the scars a bit but not so well.

    The second experience was even worse. It was by far the most painful physical experience I've ever had. Because I am almost blind since birth, I've had to go through many surgeries during my childhood and early teens. When I was 12, I had another of those surgeries. This time, the surgeons didn't go through the eyelid like most times but they basically but open the middle of the eye (through the cornea). This part was okay because I was of course in this full narcosis and so I didn't know what was going on. However, when they were done with the surgery, they sewed the open wound

    • on my eye back together and stitched it. And about 4 weeks after the surgery, it was time to take out these stitches. Luckily, I only had to go through this one time so far because it's so incredibly painful it's hard to put it into words. I had to sit on this examination seat and one doctor held up my eyelid with a small tool while another doctor used a small tweezers to literally pull/tear the thin threads out of my eye. It hurt so much that I passed out. They had to take a break and put me on a bed so I could come back to normal again. Then we continued. About 10 minutes into the procedure, the pain was so bad that I became dizzy and nauseous again. I had to get up and puked into the sink. Luckily, after that it was only one more thread and then I was done. The doctor who was doing it felt really bad and he kept saying "I'm so sorry but we really have to do it. We can't just leave them in there". Afterwards, I felt so exhausted from the pain as though I had just finished a marathon.

  • When I was 13 I was abducted, held for 3 days and raped repeatedly. I don't have much that tops that.

    • Willingly got in? Why?

    • @KawaiiPie67 2 girls a little older then me (one was about 16 the other 18) and no one ever told me not to get into a car with strange WOMEN (my mother was a 70's feminist who stressed that MEN are dangerous), they offered me a ride with a hint of "fun" and I was out after curfew and getting picked up by the police was a very real threat. Also I was heading to a concert and had a ways to go until I got there. And I was stupid.

  • Not necessarily painful psychically but mentally it was, canoeing and gulping in water when i capsized in rough waters, i was literally pulled under and being trapped helpless, horrible experience :/

    • aww i am very sorry ! Dementia is such an awful "disease" . My grandmother had dementia. It was like grieving twice, because i lost part of her due to her Dementia, then again after she died.

    • Very true.

  • Can't remember... I block out most of the painful experiences. I was inappropriately touched once when I was 12 or 13, but yeah I don't think it scarred me or anything. I have had busted my head twice or thrice but all of the things are part of growing up. I like being an adult though, much more than a child.

    • I think everyone will go through it once at least. The hardest part was that he was 43. He had at least another 20 to 50 years of living to do.

    Most painful was when the person I loved, trusted and cherished the most betrayed me.

  • I was running at home on the treadmill back in 5th grade and I got distracted by watching tv at the same time and I lost my footing and got slammed against the wall and was lodged between the wall and the treadmill belt. I couldn't get out and my sister and to come run downstairs to shut it off.
    The whole front of my legs were burnt.
