Some of today's text question answers read kind of like a script to a show on the ID Channel.  You all have had some scary things happen to you!

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s the most scared you have ever been?

  • Tqtd-when I was hit on a busy street. Knocked me across the median into oncoming traffic. Totaled my vehicle.
  • #TQOTD I was the most scared when my oldest was being airlifted to UofM for a cardiac embolism at 6 days old
  • It was a freezing morning and the highway was icy. I remember looking in my rearview mirror and seeing a car, and the next minute I hit black ice and started drifting across the highway and ended up doing a complete 360. I remember thinking," this is it, this is how I'm gonna die." I was waiting for that car to slam into me, and then suddenly I was facing forward, safe, and sobbing. A car never passed me, there wasn't one in front or behind. To this day I have no idea what happened to that car but I pulled over and immediately called my mom to cry to.
  • TQOTD.. What's the most scared I have been. winter 2017 I drove home from
  • Grand Haven after my Best friend had her baby. It was 6 a.m. during a blizzard, none of the roads were plowed and it was still dark. I was petrified. I couldn't see 2ft ahead and there wasn't any road. I had to basically bulldoze my way and guess. Took me over 2 hours to get home, but I'd do it again. Have a splendid Tuesday everyone..
  • When I saw my sister die at 10yrs old. Nothing compares to that.
  • My sister and I were On the west side of Ireland, we took the bus from Doolin to Galway. They were doing road repairs so the bus took the cliff road which literally is a single lane road three feet from the cliff that drops off into the Atlantic. As the bus took the road at 40mph a bus was coming the other way and our bus moved towards the cliff and the other bus went off the road and the driver's mirrors touched. We thought the whole bus was going to drop the 100 feet into the ocean off the cliff!! Have a great day
  • The scariest moment of my life was when I lived in Virginia Beach and got my car caught in a storm surge (Ocean water floods the beach) during a Hurricane. The car flooded and I had to get out and run to the nearest house to find some shelter from the hurricane! So scary
  • TQOTD Sometimes I have sleep paralysis. About three times a month. I just wake up and can't move and it's always terrifying. All I can do is blink and when I try to talk it just comes out as a moan. I panic which makes it worse.
    I was driving southbound on the HWY in heavy traffic when I heard a loud POP.
  • The rear passenger window exploded inward on my 4 year old. She was screaming and I couldn’t see her. It took two exits before I could get into the exit lane. I am thankful for safety glass; she wasn’t hurt! But we were both traumatized!
  • When I realized I had to give birth naturally. 😳
  • When I found out I had a brain aneurysm..
  • 12/23/2013 I was going 60 on a snowy HWY. A short white out came across the road and when I could see again there was a car going about 25-30 mph in front of me. I started to stop but hit ice and controlled the slide to take the median instead of the cars/semi trucks around me. My car flipped. All I could see was white for what seemed like forever and when it landed, it landed on the roof on my side. I thought I was going to die but I made it out without a bruise or a scratch.
  • The day my brother got married at his home. my son decided to play hide and seek by himself and didnt tell anyone. It was like he was just gone. There are two ponds on the property.
  • When I had to put my mom in life support
  • Finding out my mom had only weeks to a month to live. She passed away 9/26/2016. 😢
  • 15 years ago I had the worst flare up in my life of Crohn’s disease. 6 months of pain, weight loss, and not being able to get it under control had me in a bad spot. I was also a new mom trying to care for an infant. I was having a good day and decided to have a smoothie. Well, that smoothie gave me the most unbelievable pain I’ve ever had. Doubled over and couldn’t move or speak. I refused to go to the ER. Stupidly!!!! I ended up having surgery a couple of weeks later. I went into surgery thinking I’d never come out since things had gotten so bad. But it was my Christmas miracle. And 15 years of remission later I’m still thankful for my health.
  • When my daughter had severe croup. 3 days in the hospital.
  • When my son was born 3 months premature
  • My friend and I were tubing (14 years old at the time) with my older cousins. My friend didn't know how to swim and got caught in a current. The current ended up leaving her tubeless and stuck in a pine tree that had fell into the water. I tried to help her and ended up being stuck in a strong current, and deep water. We were stuck in that tree for 10 minutes before we were able to escape, left with scratches and 14 years later still paranoid about trees and currents while tubing.
  • No FB friendly but 2nd up was when I saw a man pull over in his dump truck open the door and fall out. He was unable to speak I had to keep him awake till the ambulance arrived. He lived 2 more weeks in the hospital. His wife found me and thanked me for giving her husband 2 more weeks with her.
  • Thanks to sub par military health care, my son was denied proper treatment for 2 full weeks after he was born. By the time we were finally admitted to a legit Children’s hospital, he was turning blue around his mouth and was going into shock due to severe dehydration. My son almost died because some stupid, poorly trained military pediatrician felt I was overreacting when I said my son was projectile vomiting any and all milk being consumed. My son was diagnosed with severe GERD (amongst many other things) and after two weeks of hospitalization had to have surgery and a feeding tube placed for 3 years!
  • Most scared...in the gulf war driving a semi-truck near the border of Kuwait at the start of the air war and being stopped by military police informing us to take cover because the US was going to drop an atomic bomb on Kuwait.
  • Most scared I've been is when I was about 10 I was at a waterpark in the wave pool and I got into a bad pattern of the water hitting me and I would go under and as soon as I got to the surface to take another breath a new wave would come and i would get knocked down without air again. Finally, a lady on an inner tube pulled me up out of the water. A friend told me I looked purple. Worst part...the lifeguard was right above me and never noticed.

  • The most scared I've ever been in my life was when my daughter was born. In the moment it felt like it took forever for her start crying. It was probably only a couple of minutes, but it wasn't just after she was born. She is now a happy, healthy, almost 8 year old.
  • I was on a family trip with about 7 of us in a van. I was about 19 taking my turn to drive. It was night and I was on a 4lane highway with both sides on one side due to construction. My family was watching Zoolander in the back. I see headlights coming towards me. I got confused and thought I was on the wrong side. There was the concrete barrier on one side and two trucks in the right lane sandwiched together. Quick decisions I had to slam on the brakes and get in between the two trucks. Literally thought I was going to kill my family. My family had no clue and started yelling at me. I said, "I just saved all of your lives!" I peed my pants.
  • On a Disney cruise lost my 2 year old on the Disney private island
  • I'd have to say the most I've ever been scared is when I was 19, i worked 3 different jobs. Working 22 hours a day, one day after leaving work I was a mile and a half from my house when I fell asleep and rolled my car, went across two lanes of oncoming traffic, swiped a few trees and landed on railroad tracks. An in the middle of it rolling I woke up said OH SH*T and fell back to sleep. An I didn't wake up again until I was in the hospital! Luckily walked away with only a scratch on my forehead. The car was not so lucky it was totaled.
  • I would have to say yesterday morning's drive into work was the the most scared I have ever been I thought for sure we were all going to die from some jackass having to pass five of us with a car coming at us and just barely squeezing in front of the gravel truck in which I was directly behind. U hate being stuck behind those trucks to but seriously that could have ended so badly I thank the good Lord above

Our "friends" pretended I was a hitchhiker and I was held st gunpoint by the Lebanese army until my cousin could get to me with my passport.

I go in to the ladies room and as I lock my stall door I hear the main door open. I don't care I sit and my butt explodes. Two man boots stop in front of my stall facing the door as my ass screams.

Even now when I think about it my stomach turns. He definitely scared me to death. And although he has had many other epic scares since we've been married and he takes great pride and me being afraid that one was his best

  • When I was 10 my 8 yr old sister and I went to visit a cousin at the YMCA camp her parents ran. We were out in a field playing on an obstacle course built for campers. As we climbed and played we could see these dogs running from the woods about a mile away. After my sister pointed them out, our cousin panicked jumped down from the play structure and yelled RUN! We momentarily sat stunned but then jumped down to follow her. We ran as fast as our little legs could carry us but the dogs caught up quick and were nearly at our heals, barking and salivating. We were screaming and running...IT WAS LIKE A DREAM ....Like the ones where you are trying to run hit can't. We finally made it to the mess hall where we quickly closed the doors behind us and waited till they left. Still to this day I'm glad that my sister and cousin were with me or I might not believe it was real. We later found out that they found the wild dogs that chased us and put them down.

Gotta love 12 year old boys.
  • I grew up in a haunted house in Madison. My parents built the house 1995 and there was a sliver of land behind us that was protected because it had been an Indian burial ground. Creepy things would happen, but around the time I was 8 my mom called the police one night because she heard a raccoon or something in our attic apparently. One Middleton officer showed up and was so scared he drew his gun and got my sister and I out of bed. Like 6 more officers showed up and they basically told us to go somewhere for the night. They search our attic and there was nothing. One officer said they heard growling...we freaking stayed that night. Nothing more happens that night but it was terrifying. They sold the house when I was in high school, and now I won't even drive by it.
  • 2010 my husband and I were in New York watching the play A Steady Rain with Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman. As we are leaving we get a call telling us my oldest daughter had crashed on the operating table. They lost her for 20 minutes and they thought she would be brain damaged. She was on a ventilator for a day. Happy ending though she was fine after that one day. She said she knew it was bad when her doctor said to her "Girl you scared the shit out of us" Yeah she had a reaction to the anesthesia which they figured she would be fine with since she had had a previous surgery using the exact same anesthesia. Scariest day EVER.
  • Scariest moment: both times when my then husband was deployed- the embassy was breached and he texted me "I love you" and the second time while we were in the divorce process and the latest embassy district bombing in Afghanistan.

I finally get over and pull off to the side and jump out of the car crying. That's when she knew I wasn't "faking" didn't drive again, Amber did
