Welcome to the misery olympics, if you are not at least a starving orphan in Africa with ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids you need not apply.

I'm missing a leg that I have phantom pain with AND I have a large gash in my other leg with ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids.

Like, your handwriting turned into a font or your legitimate handwriting every time you make a comic?

EDIT: Looking closely I see some small inconsistencies in the letters. At a glance it seemed like a font but I'm convinced it actually is individually written.

People are saying the fish is gatekeeping suffering, and I can see that. But my initial read of it was that the turtle was saying it knows how the fish feels when it doesn't. Like an extreme (since the fish is actually dying) version of someone saying they can relate to ADHD because they get distracted sometimes, or to OCD because they like to be organized, reducing actual disorders to a saying like "fish out of water."

Yep, both interpretations are definitely plausible and that's amazing. I think people just identify themselves with either the turtle or the fish, and then base their interpretations on that. Moreover, I think more interpretations are possible.

I identify with the fish more on this one, based on my mental disorders (yes plural). I appreciate you explaining both sides though, as both are true in life.

That's like when I triage people with headaches in er "what is your pain or off 10 with zero being no pain and ten being hit by a bus" "10" "so you're saying if you got hit by a bus right now you'd be in no more pain" "yes" ok bud. That sucks.

I once had a headache that was such agony I couldn’t get off the bathroom floor even though it repulsed me. I’d give that one a solid 8.

And that is a very good time to be using emergency medical services if unable to cope. Its very clear when someone's 8/10 is most people's 10/10 and they're there to get help. Some people have high pain tolerances and you have to be able to tell if they're rating something lower just because they feel it could be worse than it is and vice versa, higher because they can't handle lower levels of pain... It's a fun job!!!

I'd imagine if you acted like you believed him, lost your shit and started acting as though there were a real emergency he'd change his answer.

One can have extreme pain without it actually being visible/measurable in any way.

blahlz4374

Oh definitely, and a 10/10 headache IS an emergency if it is a 10/10 headache. But if you're snapchatting your friends how "wicked" it is to be in the ER I tend to suspect false ratings may be a factor.

Is their an ichthyologist in the house? I wonder if fish actually suffocate when they're out of water like we think they do.

Most fish gills are incapable of extracting oxygen from air, and thus, yes they do actually suffocate when they are out of the water.
