What and When was the scariest experience you have ever had? (examples- scary movie, sky diving, kid jumping into the pool, etc…)
EDEN: My scariest experience was when my eldest son had his first febrile convulsion. He was three, I was four months pregnant with my second child and my husband was working night shift, so I was home alone.
He was in bed, had been medicated to try and lower his temperature and I’d been checking on him constantly. I think I may have even been in my office – the room next to his bedroom– when it happened. I heard a foreign gagging, choking sound and rushed to his room.
I found him convulsing, his eyes rolled back and sweating profusely. I tried to talk to him, but had no response, so I ran straight for the phone. I dialled 000, asked immediately for an ambulance and believe it or not I was put on hold. Well there was no actual hold music, I still had the operator who transfers the calls on the line telling me “I’m sorry, no one is picking up, they shouldn’t be too much longer.” But I had no one to tell me what the hell to do.
Then he stopped breathing. His movements stopped. He went blue and a little piece of me died. I can’t explain the feeling apart from it being a mix of total helplessness and absolute horror. I screamed into the phone and was finally put through to an operator. By that time my son had blinked back to life. He still wasn’t coherent, he had wet the bed and his body was dripping sweat, but he was breathing.
He ended up staying overnight in hospital and was released the next morning. It wasn’t the last time he had a febrile convulsion and his younger brother suffers from them too.
Very, very scary.
BSB: Eden, that happened to my son once when he was about a year old, the febrile seizure. My heart stalled a little bit that day too. We rushed him to the ER and it took hours to get his fever down, it was a very very scary experience, I feel your fear.
ALYSSA: -When I was in college, I lived in a house with six other young women. We each had our own rooms, ground level, across from campus. One evening, when the house was full of music and laughter from the other rooms, I was on the phone in a baby T-shirt and panties, just hanging out on my bed talking to a friend. It was a normal Wednesday night, until I saw a man’s hand come through my open window, reaching, it seemed, for a way to lift it further. I didn’t have any hesitation. I dropped the phone mid-sentence and ran screaming into the hall. Forgetting that I was only in my baby T and panties and that there were two guys chilling in my roommate’s room, I flew to her door and banged on it, yelling for her to call the police.
The would be intruder must have only expected us girls to be home, because when my roommate’s guy friends found him opening the window they surprised him by one of them asking, “Do you really want to come in here?” The peeper (or worse) took one look at the size her friend and the knife he brandished and took off running. They tried to chase him, but he got away.
The adrenaline pumping through my veins turned ice cold when the police got there and discovered the deep footprints outside my window and all the smudges on the glass. He’d been there a while, just watching me. Creepy to the hilt. I moved the hell out of there in less than 48 hours. By far that’s the most scared I’ve ever been. It’s also the most grateful I’ve ever been to have had some muscle hanging around the house. Our roommate’s guy friends took us all home with them that night to their place. We huddled up on his living room floor and we were never so happy for it. Funny thing is that these were the kind of guys you wouldn’t have taken home to mom; bad boys into doing whatever it took to raise money for tuition. They turned out to be our heroes.
BSB: Alyssa, that just gave me the chills. I would have been out of that room/house as fast as possible too. College can be damned scary.
VRISTEN: Fortunately, I don’t really have any scary moments to share. I have…strange ones, though. Years ago, I worked in a relatively brand new assisted living facility for seniors and a few of the ladies who worked the night shift would always tell me and the other day shift people how the place was haunted. Naturally, after my obligatory eye rolls, I laughed it off. A friend had asked me just a couple of years prior if I believed in ghosts or anything supernatural. My response? I’d have to experience something for myself before I’d say that I did.
One morning, I clocked in to find a couple of the night shift ladies excitedly waiting to show me their “proof” via one of the security cameras. I couldn’t wait to see just what this ghostly apparition was so I could point and laugh. The footage simply showed one of the workers walking past the camera, but then, not a second later, some shadow-like, formless blob appeared and seemed to float right there behind her as she walked. Not for too long, though. The shadow thing zoomed off before any of us could make out exactly what it was. All the time in the world wouldn’t have helped, really. I’ve tried to rationalize it, from time to time. A trick of the lighting, a shadow cast by something–anything–in the room. I just don’t know. And then there was the case of the disagreeable door. In an empty room there at the facility, there was a door that just would not stay closed. Nothing was wrong with it, though. Of course, we would be walking down the hall when it would open, slowly, yet again. Over and over. None of us workers had luck with that thing. But, of course, that was limited time only. Sometimes the damn thing wouldn’t *stay* open. I, personally, stopped having anything to do with that door. The workers said it was just the spirit of one of the first residents to have lived there. He’d died not long before the odd things started taking place. Now, *that* much was true. A person really had passed away before anything inexplicable took place. As for everything else…
Weird things were, indeed, afoot at that assisted living facility, but to this day, I don’t know what they were. And, really, I guess that’s the most unsettling thing of all.
BSB: Oohh, creepy. A real (maybe) ghost story, very cool.
JENNIFER: My scariest experience to date has got to be the day that I took my younger child into the hospital to be tested for Cystic Fibrosis. You see, when I was pregnant with my first little one, the doctors found out that I have two genetic mutations for CF. Normally this means that the person with the mutations has the disease. Somehow though, I got two mutations that don’t match. Lucky, lucky me. So, I have some symptoms of CF but not the actual disease. However, this also means any children I have have an increased risk of contracting CF.
My little one came up positive for a mutation and while my husband was cleared as not having any himself, the testing is not 100% conclusive. So, we had to do a sweat test on Tiny Diva #2.
I was told the test results would take a few days at least to be processed. When I got home, carting my little one in her car seat carrier and saw the red light blinking on my answering machine, I nearly crapped my pants. The genetic counselor we’d seen had promised to call as soon as she had the results. Somehow I knew it was her on the phone. My daughter’s entire life could be altered by that recording. Not ten years earlier I’d had a childhood friend die from CF, and had seen her struggles–the inability to gain weight (she was skeletal), the illness and hospital stays, and finally planning her funeral with her mother because she knew her time was coming to a close.
When I played the message and heard that the results were negative, I fell to my knees and cried all over Tiny Diva #2′s little face.
BSB: I think parental fears about our kids are always the most scary. I’m very glad the test came back negative though
Halloween Would You Rather!
Would you Rather spend a night in a haunted house or spend a night in a graveyard of zombies?
EDEN: I would actually pay to spend a night in a haunted house. Ghosts have always amazed me. I’ve been told I have a spirit watching over me and that’s why I sometimes smell smoke when no-one else does–the man following me was a farmer who smoked heavily, or so a psychic told me.
ALYSSA: That would depend on what kind of amo I had I guess. Give me the right guns and I’ll take my chances with the zombies. Not exactly sure how you fight a ghost. I’m afraid I might acutally go out of my mind before dawn if I couldn’t make heads or tails of what was happening. The Six Sense is one of the movies where I still have to cover my face, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. For sure, you can keep the ghosts. I’ll take the zombies.
VRISTEN: I guess I’d go for the haunted house–and just hope I get stuck with some benign spirits!
JENNIFER: Hmm…I grew up in a haunted house and I’d rather not do that again! Zombies though tend to be all bitey and rude. Stinky as well, don’t you think? If they’re sort of freshly dead, they might still be juicy. *barf*
So, if I’m in the graveyard, pass me a flame thrower, machete, sawed off shotgun with plenty of shells, and some Vicks to put under my nose. I’m taking some of those rotting turds down with me.
BSB: I think I would go for the haunted house too, I can handle ghosts, but zombies freak me out. Maybe I’ve just been watching too much of the Walking Dead lately….
