No joke. I got ticked after 2 hours, and went to the hospital across the road. (yep, within a mile) and asked how long. 15 mins...

woot.

but then, I almost bomb on a RN who wanted to start my IV ungloved, uncleaned hands. Omg seriously? Told me his dexterity.was diminished. umm...no.

Seriously, wash your darn hand and stick some gloves on.

Diminished dexterity has nothing to do with washing your hands and putting on gloves. If he can function to draw blood he can do the other.

I figure it was an exaggeration and what she really means is very little because otherwise she'd be dead by now.

You made me I think you can only last 3 days with out water and a week or so without food. I think I could make it a few weeks without food, I have a little stored up on my hips, lol.

It depends on the circumstances/environment . Food can be weeks but water - at best is 10 days (if you have an shelter and an ideal temp - not too hot or cold)

I'm glad about that. Even if you don't eat much, you MUST drink. 2 litres a day, or 67 fluid ounces is what you should be aiming for.

You must have lost loads of weight?
