i have no kids yet, (i'm only 23 i have time still!) so i cant compare that but for me its either, my wisdom teeth extraction where they took out all 4 impacted teeth then gave me percoset which i then found out my body has no tolerance /slight allergy to and i puked into my fresh stitches for a few hours before blacking out, then the doctor wouldnt switch my medicine and regular tylenol and stuff do NOTHING for me ever, so i had to go through the entire healing process with no pain killers, so it was either that or the one time when i was 15 i volunteered to be in my friends bands stage show for halloween, the idea was they'd dress me as a bride and hang me from the ceiling with chains in a mountain climbing harness, and i would act like a stringed puppet the entire show, well they couldnt figure out the harness so it ended up on me backwards, i was 4 feet off the ground and had to swing there for like an hour before the show started which would have been fun but my legs were numb. the show started i did my job they played like an hour long set and my legs were numb the whole time, after the show my friend the singer hugged my legs and around my hips just him hugging my legs after they were numb so long and after getting down and the blood coming back into my legs that was sooooo horrible. after that im never going mountain climbing. also i have arthritis in my sternum which is a constant deep pain and the bone cracks, but thats not too bad because its bone pain so even if its bad its the kind you can ignore.
