I had severe asthma as a child, and was also temporarily paralyzed due to Guillain-Barre syndrome (luckily making a full recovery).
I've been in two flipped cars in one year and fallen thirty feet from a tree.
Also, I was bitten by a poisonous spider on the abdomen, and yet again my sac swelled to the size of a softball. Adirondacks + no insurance = waited it out.

Back to topic.
I found out a couple years back that I had a mild scoliosis of the spine. That came as a big surprise. I'm 58 now. Although I think it explained some the back pains I've increasingly experienced over the years while standing or running for extended periods.
Addictions to alcohol and nicotine that I struggled with and finally overcame. Almost 31 years since my last drink. Quit while in the Navy.
Metal that put was in me and is still there from a broken ankle while playing roller hockey 20-plus years ago.
And of course, there's hay fever. Had that since I was a kid. It wasn't so bad this Spring except after mowing the lawn.

Pacemaker. Without it my heart stops. I am a veritable surfing energizer bunny.

Nah, not debilitating pain at all, just minor sharp pains here and there, rather inconsistently. I had double groin hernias, so I got matching scars. You, on the other hand, will be an asymmetrical freak.

I've had Priapism for years. It's very painful, but chicks dig it.

the past three years,age 48-51,have been debilitating for me as far as I used to just go surfing and now I can barely get up to my feet on the board,thanks to needing new hips and then a deadly sarcoma,removal of the femoral rectus so I now have a tri instead of a quadriceps plus the burnt leg from radiation has the soft tissue as hard as a rock so I can't move,but I still got some waves the past couple days,though it's a total struggle to get up on my feet

Almost checked out permanently due to staph infection, on a serious level. Hospitalized, etc, doctor wasn't confident. Barely pulled out of that one.
Nothing worse than the prospect of going out slow and on your back, at the hands of an enemy that you can't fight. Id much rather check out on my own terms.
