    Default How many times have you contracted a disease that could have killed you?

    I was thinking about it...and by my estimation probably around 6 times.
    I have no idea if that number is high or low.

    I'm in my early 20s.

    I think that's very high.

    Only once for me when I was like 2 or 3 years old.

    I'm in my late twenties.

    6x? If you don't mind my asking, what were they?

    Mh, I was hospitalized for pneumonia when I was two.
    And all last year/into early this year, I was fighting off a super-resistant bacterial infection that lead to septicemia on at least two occasions. Finally was referred to a competent specialist. It's over, at last.

    So, twice.

    Well...malaria*4.
    And typhoid, twice..

    People die of malaria all the time...so I'm not sure how I managed to contract it four times and live to tell about it...do you gain some sort of immunity after you've had it?

    I was an adventurous kid, I guess. Drank from random streams...constantly in the woods...or the plains...

    I remember once I almost bled to death...(well sorta...there was blood everywhere...and I was floating in and out of consciousness because I was losing too much blood..)

    You have to count influenza if you have ever had it. It still kills millions worldwide every year.

    If you count influenza, than just twice. I was pretty miserable at the time I had it but I don't think I was anywhere near death. I've been pretty lucky health wise so far.

    Ehh, I'd have to say once. I to this day do not know what it was, but it gave me a fever bad enough that I started to hallucinate. I probably should have gone to the hospital for that one...

    For me it was influenza with german measles combination. Just after I was vaccinated for german measles. Which according to the doctors only served to inflame the desease. Very high fever and rash all over. But too young to remember how I felt. :P

    About 1,000 times. A cold can kill you.
