What was the worst day of your life and why? Does it affect your life now? If that day never would've existed, how do you think your life would be currently?

The day Jamie died. Yes, it affects my life now. My life would be much more harried, with a seventeen-year-old Jamie---and a lot happier.---Al

Can I pick 2? May 18, 1996, the day my "baby" died in an auto accident at age 24. And April 20, 1999, the day my middle son hung himself at age 30. If those two days had not happened, we'd smile a lot more these days.

Like Bev and Al, the worst day of my life centers around the loss of a family member.

My father was killed in an accident at work on December 14, 2000. He was 54.

It's just starting to hit me -- how miserable I've been for the past couple of months is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm only 24, and I've never seen myself as anything but Daddy's little girl. I've never wanted more in life than that -- and now I'm looking at the rest of my life, all these long years ahead of me and it all looks so barren.

If that day never would have existed ... I've been asking someone to take it all back since the first moment, ever since my brother told me on the phone. Take it back, take it back, please, say it's not true.

Please, I already knew how lucky I was. Please, I never doubted that I was lucky to have him. Please.

I was twentytwo years old, married in June, Heather had found out not too long before, she was pregnant when, after undergoing a simple appendectomy my mother suffered a blood clot to the brain and died. The trauma to this young man who was trying to makea passing grade in Marriage 101 -- was tremendous, Mom gone at age forty -- the lady who was looking forward to a grandbaby to spoil and cuddle as she did my cousin's babys.

Would my life be different ? Yes, our kids got cheated out of a loving, touching grandmother. Also, Mom died before I had a chance to show her how much I loved her, wish it had been different.

The worst day of my life was when...I saw the boy that I liked with another girl...it was the most utter embarrassing moment of my entire life.

the worst day of my life was having flashbacks about being tormented and harassed.

The worst day of my life was the first time I saw the guy I liked hugging on someone else. This broke me so bad, but I got over it. Now all I really do is feel sorry for myself obsessing over that same guy. Does that make sense?

My boyfriend got into a fight, and then the cops came, and he hit a cop, so now he is on probhation, and cant talk to me, or see me, for 2 months, not even in school. its tearig me apart.this is almost the worst day of my life, it would be more of the worst day of my life, if i didnt have the two other worser options that i thought of.
