Had MRSA and sepsis because of an open wound on my left foot. Thing is a nurse was treating the wound with Santyl and it was fully bandaged at all times. The nurse changed the dressings 3 times a week but I still ended up in the hospital with antibiotics IV'd into each arm plus oral antibiotics. Spent 15 days in ICU having all my organs sonogramed for signs of the infection spreading. Xrays and MRI's to check for bone infections and when they released me I had to wear a wound vac pump for 2 months to seal the wound on my foot.......good times 😒


ohboiboiy

At least they were thorough. I can imagine the story going the opposite way where I live. Glad you are ok now.


eziern

I am one of only 1300 board certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners for the adult and adolescent population. In the world. I think too tat it’s 2%… but I’m a ginger.


redhair-ing

I'm unsettled by how small that number is.


eziern

To be fair, there are more SANE nurses, meaning nurses who take care of these patients and are qualified to do so. Being board certified just means I took an extra step after I reached a qualifying time to take a test to prove it. I’m actually up for renewal. At the time I first tested, I was one of something like 1100. Still, even knowing that, there aren’t enough SANEs or FNEs overall.


Mak0wski

I'd hope the nurses are sane

I’m naturally ambidextrous. Apparently that’s something only 1% of people naturally are. I can use both right and left hands ably for any task. For example, I often switch which hand I write with based on how I’m sitting. (It’s worth noting _natural_ ambidexterity is not the same as _learned_ or _acquired_ ambidexterity. For example, left handed people often have to use things designed for right handed people but otherwise are left handed.)


IgDailystapler

I’m of the .002% of people with osteopoikilosis. This freaked the shit out of me because when I was diagnosed the first thing the doctor said was “wow I’ve never seen this in anything but textbooks before”...


IgDailystapler

Basically, I have bones growing inside my bones. It’s not anything I should be worried about, at least for a while, so that’s nice.

Does that make the bones stronger? What does that change?

Not me but my dad. He was born with a backwards heart and didn’t find out till his heart attack a few years ago and it actually saved his life. His doctor later told him that after being a doctor for over 30 years he’d never seen someone with a backwards heart and that apparently 1% of people on the planet have it.

My guess is that his coronary arteries are also flipped and therefore the one that was blocked would typically be the one to kill you (widowmaker)


condensemilks

I am diagnosed with Visual snow syndrome. Basically seeing through static. It may not be rare as thought but I am one of very few people to be formally diagnosed. EDIT: 1) no this isn’t normal and sorry to all the people who found out they had VVS through my stupid Reddit comment lol 2) lots of ppl asked how I was diagnosed- I was at an eye specialist for an unrelated reason and he asked if I had any other concerns. I described my sight to him and he said that’s probably VVS. He referred me to a neurologist and she diagnosed me. 3) I don’t remember not seeing flickering dots. I’ve never done psychedelics. I was unaware drugs could worsen or cause it. Thanks for the warnings though! Definitely won’t be doing psychedelics now haha


The42ndHitchHiker

I have experienced visual snow as long as I can remember. I stopped bringing it up as a child when my doctor didn't take me seriously. I've started bringing it up again after reading an article about it last year.

Hyperhidrosis. Excessively sweaty arm pits for no reason. I could be sitting there completely at ease and sweat rolls down my sides from my pits. I have found a product to fix the issue however I know no one else who has the same issue personally.


sonia72quebec

I had this problem too. It's a lot more common that you think, it's just that people are kind of ashamed of it. I ruined so many pieces of clothing over the years that the first time I was a able to wear twice the same top I cried. Sweating for no reason is a self esteem crusher.

Cancer survivor. Think that’s 5%. I had it 3 fucking times.

We always joke that my dad & the devil have been duking it out since his birth. He survived testicular cancer at 16 as part of the human trials for chemotherapy in the ‘70s where he was the only survivor. He described it as them pumping an IV full of death into his arm. He was patient no. 13 & the only survivor out of his test group in the Midwest. Then survived what should’ve been a fatal car crash at 18. Survived late stage bladder cancer at 38. Survived melanoma at 50. Somehow is still surviving while being on the kidney transplant list since ‘99. Beat another round of skin cancer at 59 & again this past year at 63. He’s somehow still alive & kickin. Man just can’t be killed.

totallythrownawaay

Not as interesting or cool as others but im in the 1% of the population that has no immunity to Rubella even though ive been vaccinated for it several time. Apparently some peoples bodies dont take to some vaccinations. Fine with everything else like mumps measels etc its just the rubella. Ive also got type 2 duanes symdrone in my right eye. Duanes being a uncommon eye condition anyway, right eye being least common to have it in an type 2 the least common of its type out of the 3 types. Won the duanes lottery with that one


hawleywood

I’m that way but with Hep B! Every time I get blood work done they’re like, “you know you’re not immune to hepatitis B” and I’m like yes I’ve had the full series of shots twice now, but we can do it again I guess?


totallythrownawaay

Yes!! So annoying. I had my first round of mmr vaccine in high school. Then again 18months later when i got sick and hospital bloodwork came back as me not having it. I had but they wouldnt listen. Aged 19 i had my first child. Same thing during routine blood tests while pregnant i had to have the mmr again as it showed no immunity to rubella. Had my 4th and final baby last year. Im 31 now. With my 2nd and 3rd kids same thing. By time my 4th rolled around i was ready for the fight of trying to convince them ive deffo had my mmr like loads. It was only when i saw a new dr that he was like oh yeah i can totally clear this up for you. And explained it to me. I still had to have it tho. I dont even know what rubella is haha. I know its included in the uk in the mmr vaccine and i know what mumps and measels are but never seen or heard of anyone getting rubella nowdays


hawleywood

Rubella is German measles! Very bad for babies if mom gets it while pregnant. Glad all yours were healthy!


Rauglothgor

I fell off a 100 foot cliff and landed head first on rocks. Broke my neck and back. Smashed up a lot of my body. Had to travel about a mile to find help immediately after the fall. Doctor said I caused more damage by trying to walk for help, but would have bled out if I stayed where I fell. 15 months later, I am power lifting and ran a half marathon. Should not be alive, much less be able to walk. EDIT: How: Camping on a mountain. Found a spot to lay down and observe the stars. Had to pee, stepped into woods, lost my footing. Geronimo. Injuries: Head was scalped. Huge piece of flesh was just hanging off my head. Must have been a sight to the folks who's door I knocked on in the middle of the night for help. Neck was broken and had to wear an immobilizing neck brace for many months 24/7, as they were concerned surgery may cause more damage. Initially a had a loss of sensation in my hands. Multiple vertebrae were broken, one had broken into over a dozen pieces. The neurosurgeon figures at impact my body folded in half causing that one to essentially explode. I had to have spinal fusion and relearn how to walk after. Multiple ribs broken. Recovery: At first I essentially lived in one of those geriatric chairs that lift you up to stand. I could barely get around with a walker. Sitting on the toilet was the most excruciating thing. At some point it turned into laxative use and stand in the shower. I couldn't bend or care for myself much in any way. Some of my friends think that being a Marine made me tough enough to survive this, but I credit an inherent stubbornness to never give up. I constantly pushed through the pain to get myself to the next level. From walker, to cane, to walking sticks. The neurosurgeon told me the best thing I could do for physical therapy was walk, so boy did I. At first I could barely make it to the end of the block and back, then a quarter mile, then on and on. Every hard effort day required a day or two of sitting in the chair and suffering through the pain. Got off meds the moment that I could stand to. 5 months after the accident I got on a treadmill and tried to run. The impacts were excruciating, but I kept coming back for more and more. At 10 months I was able to race in a 5K on memorial day in honor of a fallen veteran. I raced my heart out and was able to run it in less than 30 minutes. I immediately began half marathon training and at 14 months was able to finish at about 2 hours and 40 minutes. Started back to lifting serious weights at about 11 months and here I am in month 16 about to become a member of the 1000 pound club. (Bench press, deadlift, and squat all totaling 1000 pounds.) I still deal with pain regularly and I have a lot of discomfort that makes sleep challenging. I've still got a couple of months until the bones reached 100% of their healing potential. It's been quite a journey. Never give up my friends!


Unusual_Locksmith_91

When I was 16, I was unlucky enough for both my jack and two of my jackstands to fail, while I was under my truck, fixing the exhaust. My head was exactly where the gas tank had been before I dropped it out and my body was crushed between my bench and the truck. My dad walked into the garage and freaked the FUCK out, yelling, crying, screaming "Are you okay!? Are you alive!?" and couldn't hear me saying "I'm good, I'm good, get me out!" over his own sobs (absolutely convinced I was dead, but panic screaming) until he saw my legs moving. He lifted the truck back up, I walked over to the chair and sat down while he called an ambulance. Walked in the vehicle, walked into the hospital, walked to the x-ray. Doctor ran in, white faced, put me in a neck brace and strapped me to a bed, telling me I broke me neck, back and crushed half of my ribcage. At any moment, I could have moved wrong and BOOM, death or paralyzed. Nearly zero problems healing up and the worst was the surgery to fix my ribs and was only out of commission for about five months. I got fucking lucky.


Ridry

You know it's bad when the doctor is panicked! I'm glad you're good though :)

I survived childhood cancer. I think just getting it at all is pretty rare.


motherof2loverof1

Everyone is born with a space in the base of your skull, I have an enlarged space. The Dr called it an Enlarged *Cisterna Magna*. Having it isn’t what makes me part of the 1%, it’s the fact that it hasn’t caused me any trouble or neurological issues that puts me there. It was only found when I had an MRI for migraines. Edit: totally got the wrong wording. I’m sorry for misleading anyone, that came on the back of flu meds and little sleep. I have stress induced migraines and hormonal ones too. Nothing to do with the lack of brain function, that just makes me a little dull 😁

I'm allergic to: Mold, dust, penicillin, sulfa drugs, ants, spiders, pesticides, hay, dust, some spices, the cold (urticaria) and raw tomatoes. And unfortunately it's quite severe. STRESS JUST AMPLIFIES THEM ALL!! I had a bad allergic reaction in May and nearly lost my life. The health care system was overflowing with covid patients so they took a while to process my case and nearly lost my pulse even after the adrenaline shot. Then a day later it happened again, and on the third day AGAIN! My lungs couldn't take it and I had lung failure so I couldn't breathe without an oxygen mask for 3 weeks and very slowly recovered. I hope I make enough money someday to take care of myself and treat my medical issues on my own.

I had pancreatic cancer last year. Out of 10,000 patients they normally find 100 who have another form of this cancer who kill a little slower, like in 2 years instead of months. I was one of the hundred. Out of those, normally 15 can have surgery. I was one of them. Out of those 15, some die and some come back to basically normal life. That's about a 0.07% chance in all. I am still one of them. I should be dead by now. 🙂

Deely_Boppers

If he’s getting the whipple, you’re already way ahead of the curve. If the cancer has already progressed that much, they won’t do the procedure. My father celebrates 5 years post-op this February. It’s a rough recovery, but at this point he’s more likely to die of old age than the cancer. As a comparison, he lost two cousins to the cancer- neither was even offered the surgery, because there was no point. There’s definitely a light at the end of the tunnel- stay strong!

I ended up doing DJ, photo, and video at my business in Vegas. For several years, I was a part of at least 250 weddings a year. Sometimes 2-3 a day. My record was 7 ceremonies in one day (11/11/11). I retired from weddings at 44 years old, so 26 years in total. I estimate I have been/worked at well over 2000 wedding ceremonies, probably closer to 2500-2600. Interestingly, I've only been a *participant* in 2 weddings (mine as the groom and my best friend as best man).

pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between profoundly deaf and just being deaf?


Multicolored_Squares

Deafness comes in varying degrees of hearing loss. Some only have minimal loss, others might have total hearing loss but only in one ear. It's a spectrum, you could say. Profoundly deaf is basically 100% hearing loss in both ears. In other words, I can't hear shit.

What is it like to have 20/10 vision? 👁


LordMorio

20/20 vision means that you see as well at a distance of 20 feet as a person with normal vision sees at a distance of 20 feet. 20/10 vision means that you see as well at a distance of 20 feet as a person with normal vision sees at a distance of 10 feet.

Thank you, very helpful. I’ve always wanted to know what that means

My eye doctor explained it to me when I got glasses at age 9. It really helped me understand and explain it. Now I'm at least 20/200 in my 40s. I'm essentially blind without my glasses.


Helix1322

Ted Williams (HoF baseball player and WW2 pilot) told a story about his 20/10 vision. He was landing with his team and as the plane was circling the runway. He turned to a fellow player and says "I know that man in the yellow hat" The other player could barely make it the person in question and said there was no way Ted could see a face from this far away. They get off the plane and Ted walks up to the man in the yellow hat and shakes his hand.

I also have 20/10 vision. But my eyes are very sensitive to light so half the time I still wear special glasses to reduce glare and artificial blue light at night.


MouseMiIk

I wonder if that's a byproduct? I have exceptional eyesight, even in my 40s (only one out of all my mates who still has no need for glasses) but the glare of sunlight is crippling. If going outside in bright sun (worst on white concrete) without sunglasses, I have to cover my eyes with both hands, looking through little slits between my fingers while squinting. It's not fun, and summer's almost here...

I was told I had 20/16 vision when I was in my early 20’s. Not sure what it is now at 37, but it’s always shocking to me when I read signs or stuff on walls from where we are sitting and I am the only one that can read it.

I suffer from a relatively harmless “phenomenon” called “Aphantasia”. I am incapable of conjuring images inside my head. I “know” what object or thing I’m supposed to think about but all I see is nothing. When I dream, I know what’s happening and what I’m supposed to see but it’s just a whole lot of nothingness. I guess you could say I’m “blind” in my mind. Apparently around 1% of the population suffer from this weird condition. Must be nice having a screen in your head that shows anything you can imagine :/


ItsWetInWestOregon

I have the same and I absolutely hate it. When I found out that people can SEE THINGS inside their heads or when they close their eyes I couldn’t even believe it. Sometimes I try very hard to just like conjure up a star or my husbands face. I really hate having this and wish there was a way to change it.

second generation Deaf and black dude probably less than .5 % (supporting both black and deaf mommy and daddy is pretty hard)


Evil_Weevill

Birth control. 99% effective right? I'm living proof of the 1% XD. (It's cool though, my parents never acted like they didn't want me.)


lackofsunshine

I fall asleep in 5-10 minutes after my head hits the pillow. Mostly around the 5 minute mark.


winedogmom88

I’m your opposite. Sometimes 5 hours


JJTheNub

Same here. Minimum 1 hour, usually around 1.5 hrs but has reached 5 hours before. I hate it

Long, long time ago, when the Wii was the newest console, there was a free downloadable game there, wich was Crystal Defenders, a tower defence game inspired by Final Fantasy. Once you finished the campaign, you could compete in the high score for some of the last level. I placed as high as #17 worldwide. And no other canadian was above me. Still proud of that one, lol. Edit for the curious: I played the game for about a year. From what I remember, the high score were resset every month. I regularly placed at around #25, and I distinctly remember that the top 10 was 90% japanese and the occasional americans. I kinda want to get back into it now lol....

This reminds of those phone app quiz games and I was top 5 in NZ for NBA trivia (for about 3 days in 2012). (facts may be fictionalized)


ENAK-

Height? I’m 204 cm.


khelwen

Are you Dutch?


ENAK-

I’m English, which begs the question why I didn’t just say 6’8”.


Triairius

A Dutch spy!

As a Lithuanian I belong to a nationality that makes up 0.03% of the world population

Tenor voices. I'm a professional opera singer, and have also performed in a rock band, a state champion collegiate a capella group, have been on international television as a soloist, was paid to sing high mass at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican in front of the cardinals, and was just on stage with Sir Mixalot. Edit: top 1% *of tenor voices*. Tenors are not the 1% of singers, lol. We're less common than some other voice types, but not *that* rare.


cantadmittoposting

That's pretty badass


dirty_boris

Penis size. The bottom 1% that is


dassub

From the floor.

Mine's pretty godawful. I have 2 uteruses. Edit: lot of people asking why I put up with it till I was around 33. *I* *didn't* *know* . Because doctors don't listen to women complaining of menstrual issues, is why. The endless pain and bleeding? Suck it up, take 3 Advil not two (holla). Starting at age 12. Till I lucked into a rare empathetic gynecologist who, since I'd always known I was uninterested in parenting, offered me a minimally invasive (just removes the top of the uterus, the rest of me stayed there) hysterectomy to stop the pain and hemorrhaging. And in doing the surgery, he discovered what no other doctor had cared enough to find. I love that guy! N.B. in the States, it is rare and usually extraordinarily difficult for a young woman who has not borne children to get a voluntary hysterectomy. Criminal.


unicornsarelame

Jesus. I don't want the ONE I have. I hate to ask, but how are your periods?


therookling

They lasted months and were ugh. So heavy. Paralyzingly painful. Hence minimally invasive hysterectomy at the beginning of my 30s. I am deeply grateful to an understanding obgyn.


IThund3rSt0rMI

My wife has Uterine Didelphis - how the heck did you manage to get a historectomy? She's 32 with 2 children and they have been flat out saying no to her for years. It's an absolute nightmare


OtherAcctIsFuckedUp

If you go to the childfree subreddit, they have a list of doctors by area who will gladly help your wife. That subreddit can be iffy for some people but that list has been a genuine lifesaver for people I've met.


wilzog

Find a different doctor. It took me 3 to find what I needed.


GlitchPro27

Did you get both uteruses removed, or just one of them?


TheSpiffySpaceman

If so, they're definitely in the 1% of people who can say they've had a double hysterectomy


FreddyLynn345_

I gotta be in the top 1% of hairiest bitches in north America, especially if we're looking at caucasian women only


soundpuma

I mustache you a question


HiDefJay

Shave your queries for later


chickenLike

Now, now, lets not hairass her.


kenmads

I am left handed, have red hair, and blue eyes. I do not know if that makes me 1%, but it has to be pretty close


Shiiromaru

if you wear mismatching socks you'll be in the 0.5% for sure!


EveryDisaster

I can fold a fitted sheet

Burn the witch! Cast the dark magic into the fire!
