Yes. I became very itchy from a specific pain medication and extremely nauseous from a very powerful anti-biotic. A migraine preventative I tried made me extremely sleepy, and I felt like a total zombie, just the "duh" factor, is how I described it. Those are the only times I can think of, and while none were life-threatening, they were all very unpleasant.

Oh, and the worst was something, once again, that they gave for migraines. I TOLD them that I had reacted before, and they insisted that they knew better and no one "would react like that," so they gave me another shot of it, and I had EXTREME anxiety, plus I kept tremoring. It felt like restless leg syndrome feels, for those of you who have experienced that, but throughout my entire body. I remember wanted to rip the IV from my hand. They gave me a shot of Benadryl to counteract that, but that was the trip to the ER where, afterwards, I told my sons I would never again go to the E.R. except by ambulance (where I have no choice), and I have stuck to that, even though many times I probably should have gone. But doctors and nurses always know better than the patient, right? Of course we don't know our own bodies or what we are talking about.

Sorry for being so cynical and for such a long answer to your question, but you know me when I get "on a roll....." Blabberfingers. lol!

Have you ever been embarrassed by calling someone by the wrong name?

Hope, I understand. I had a reaction to Guaifenesin. My doc assured me he had never heard of anyone having a reaction. I ended up in the er. The doc was nice and took it seriously. He went and consulted with someone else and even researched it a little. I think the problem wasn't the Guaifenesin itself but the dose. It was a very high dose.

I once had a dermatologist yell at me because I was allergic to so many things. He had never yelled at me before and I was quite surprised at his reaction. He told me that I didn't have a true allergy to those medicines. What an idiot. I know what medicines make me feel deathly ill.

My most recent er visit, the doc listened to me when I told him which pain medicines work for me and which don't.

Yes! We used to go to a good Mexican restaurant. We had the same waitress several times. I though I remembered her name as Rosa. I thanked Rosa several times during the night. It wasn't until we were ready to leave that I noticed her name tag and it was not Rosa.

OMGoodness do I have a story for this one, and talk about embarrassing! And it happened at the casino! I brought a friend, from out of town, to the casino. We parked the car and all was good. I knew right where I parked, and as we went up the walkway, I even looked around to make sure I knew where I had parked. Been there a few times for sure.

We came out of the casino, and I went straight to where I THOUGHT my car was. She is kind of lagging behind, as she really hadn't paid attention. After all this is MY town, MY casino, MY parking lot and car. Well, the car wasn't in the row I thought. So, we go down the next row, and I am like "it just has to be there." I am clicking my remote on and off to see if the lights go on. We ended up walking up and down like seven rows of cars. I actually became totally and completely convince that SOMEONE STOLE MY CAR Angry although I had no idea why they would choose mine out of several nicer choices, lol!

Security finally noticed us wandering round and round (and thank goodness it wasn't cold out), and he let us get in his van and he drove me around and around where I was. Then, he went to the lower part, and I said I know I am not down here. We were up in these rows of cars. However, when we got down there, everything started looking really familiar. In fact, it looked a lot like the section where we HAD just been looking. lol And, sure enough! There was my darn car, and I was just SO SO confused Confused still as to how that could happen! I mean the upper and lower part did look identical, but I don't how I headed for one section instead of the other.

The security guy was really nice, and he assured me that "it happens all the time." My friend was really nice about it, too, and said we had a funny story to always remember, lol!

The thing is, I always worry when I park in parking garages, because I have to do that quite often, but I have never lost my car in one of those (thank goodness, I would be doomed). I heard that at the Mall of America there is someone whose sole job it is to ride bike around and find "lost" vehicles.

Wow, what a reminder, LuckyMe! I still can't get over how SURE I was that someone took my car, because I KNEW without a DOUBT where my car was parked! haha!

Hope, I have lost my car before for about 5 minutes in a parking lot. Since then I try to park near a big light pole as a marker. I also try to line it up with something on the front of the building like a letter. That has helped tremendously.

I got lost one time when I was visiting my daughter in Cincinnati. I had never been to that part of town. I got directions before I left. My daughter said she knew I would get lost. The thing is I think the signs were missing on the way back. It took me about an hour to find my way. My mom was with me and getting worried I could tell. I finally just took an interstate (not the one I needed) and it led me to the interstate I wanted. Whoo.....The thing is, it was getting late and getting dark. I now do Mapquest, print out maps, and have all of my "before I turn" streets highlighted.

Getting lost is the worst feeling on earth! I, too, do "Google Maps," because MapQuest has actually gotten me lost before. I have difficulty at night, because I can never read the street sign until I am already past it! Sad This is why I really, really want a GPS.

No. Not that bad. I hate taking vitamins and supplements, though, and I have to swallow a huge number of pills per day. I dread it each day. I wish I could afford ALL liquid vitamins, but I can barely afford the ones I have to buy and take.

Have you ever broken a bone?

Mapquest has gotten me lost a couple of times. One time we ended up almost out of gas in the ghetto. I was afraid we were going to get shot before we could get out of there. Lesson learned.....go nowhere without a full tank of gas. Oh another forum topic.

I'm hoping it might come off this Friday but judging by what they said last week when they x-rayed it, I don't think it will. There's no pain any more. Its just gotten to the stage where I am sick of it because its so annoying.

Here's hoping that it heals super fast and you can get the cast off on Friday!

I have broken only one bone, and that was my thumb. The doctor looked at it, said it was fine, and sent me home (of course, bunch of QUACKS, lol). I could tell it was broken. When I tried to take the milk out of the frig it kept making this snapping noise and feeling. Hurt like crazy. So....back in I go, and they took the xray and sure enough it was broken. It was right before July 4 and time for picnic and lake time. I thought they would give me a little splint. I came out with a cast up to my elbow. All this to say that I know how you feel, CL-Ed when you get to the point where you just want that cast to come OFF! I hated how it itched so! I have seen people take clothes hangers and stretch them so they can scratch under their casts, lol (don't get any ideas, CL-Ed, lol).

I have a picture of me in the lake with my arm high above my head so my cast would not get wet. I wanted to dive under the water and go swimming so bad! Sad I was doing day care at the time, and one of the moms was an artist. She painted stars and stripes/red, white, and blue on my cast, lol.

Do you have another "Would You Rather" question, CL-Ed?

I know CL-Ed may not be able to read every thread, so I'm going to list a new have you ever. You can jump back in anytime CL-Ed.

Have you ever locked your keys in your car? I locked my keys, and my daughter in the car when she was about 18 months. She was not able to unlock the door because she didn't understand. It was starting to get hot in the car, so we had to break the little wing window to get in.

Bummer! Yes, I have locked my keys in my car, and more than once. The time I remember most is when we went to Mpls to see Clinton/Gore and Wellstone. I got all the boys out of the car, my purse (with keys in it) was still on the floor of the van, and someone swung the van door shut. I had to spend 50 dollars to get a locksmith! Sad Another time I was in my smaller town at a garage sale, and Otis was in the car. Sad The cop came and helped, and she did not charge me. I have done that more than twice, but I remember those two times the most.

Have you ever given money to a homeless person?

I haven't given money to a homeless person, but I did offer to give them food I just bought. I rarely see homeless people unless I go to downtown Chicago and that is usually passing by on a busy street.

Not one give for me, but I gave one for my ex-husband. We ended up having a raging snowstorm, but we still had some guests. It was funny, because I still sent him off somewhere that day, and he kept sliding past our driveway and would have to go do U-turn to come back. We would all be getting ready, then we would see him slide past again, lol! Some who attended were neighbors and also the people who lived upstairs in our duplex. We ended up with WAY too much beer left in the keg, lol!
