  • Yes. It was from San Francisco to Taipeh. I had a very bad headache and the stewardess in charge was not willing to give me panadol for my relief. She suggested relief by drinking water. It was most uncomfortable for the duration of the flight.

  • +5 congrats topic of day ! 1st trip after diagnosed with diabetes. i had spare everything and was so prepared even had wide variety of snacks packed just in case. i dropped my insulin bottle on the concrete it broke, no worries i packed a spare bottle 3 days in all was going great i was still embarrassed to do injection at the table we were eating so i always went to rest room. i dropped my spare bottle on hard tile floor it broke as well !! spent hours at a cvs pharmacy getting a prescription transfer so i could have my insulin. thank god i got over my problem of worrying about what people thought if i took an injection at the dinner table but i did learn how to be discreet. i am now on the pump so this is never a thought now in any case.
  • yes i was travelling on a bus for 7 hours with the most cronic diarheoa
  • Yes. Driving an ageing Datsun, approaching a roundabout about to join the motorway, as I de-clutched and braked there was a loud bang and my clutch foot hit the floor. My husband (at the time) had commented the clutch seemed stiff to him but I didnt find it so. On inspection, the clutch cable had seized and I had torn it through the bulkhead ripping a flap of metal loose..(horse riders have strong leg muscles..) LOL

  • yesss i had a 75,000 dollor chev durramax. just bought it had a 6" sky jacker lift put on amongst extras. just before i left i had the transmission beefed up at a local mechanic shop ( took 2 weeks). i road tripped to cali, comming from salt lake city. as i was leaving vegas i was prob a 100 miles out and having a blast. massive 1000 watt sterio system, 12" subbs, and a quad cab filled with 2 girls and 2 guys. well..... i heard a metal grind in my rear end so i pulled off at the first exit. checked it out, checked breaks, roters, even all the oils. nothing!! so i got back on the road.. when we hit the death valley dessert outside of cali, on the 25 mile long staright away... well a loud bang, followed by a huge jerking of my truck ( as if you was towing a car and the chain had slack in it and it snapped) well i pull over. hop out and look over my truck. i notice a huge puddle o' oil behind my truck, only to see a hole in my rear differential. SO, i walk 2 miles to a emergency phone, wait 3 hours for a tow truck. it took 3 days to fix and got a bill for $2,500.00. so the following week i took my mechanic prior to the trip to cort!!! needless to say i no longer have that dream truck :(
  • While staying in a hotel in Baltimore, I was roused from my sleep by the fire alarm at 4:30 AM. I darted down 32 floors in my PJs only to be notified that their was no fire. A severely drunk woman had smashed a sprinkler head, tripping the fail-safe on the alarm system.
