There’s nothing like seeing your life flash before your very eyes. Well, these lucky Redditors got into some sticky situations and are here to recount their terrifying survival stories.

1. Calm Down And Breathe

The teachers refused to believe that me, a scrawny seven-year-old who has had asthma my entire life, was having trouble breathing and that I really needed my inhaler. Not only did they refuse to let me take it, but they also wouldn’t let me call my mother or doctor, so I suffered an entire school day being practically unable to breathe.

I collapsed on the walk home with my mother as I was mid-way explaining why I was having trouble breathing and was rushed to the hospital via ambulance for extra-strength steroids and an oxygen tent. I did a two-day stint with doctors and nurses who all knew me, since I was in hospital monthly for asthma attacks. When my mother found out the full story of what happened, she absolutely lost it.

She marched down to the principal’s office and what ensued was a one-way screaming match with her basically reaming out the school staff who were all aware of my medical condition but thought I was faking it. After that, whenever I needed my inhaler, I could take it freely. No explanation necessary.
