That is SWEET. They said she drank three “small” glasses of hard liquor…I think it would take alot more before I could gut myself! Of course, she was probably in so much pain from labor that it didn’t really hurt. But still! What courage!
I am glad that I am not a girl. And that I don’t live in Mexico!
Have you ever poked at something that was realy swollen? I bet it hurt a lot, in fact, I don’t think I could image the pain.
wow, I have heard a survival story of a person that had cut off his leg for food; he was in the middle of nowhere. If your in a life or death situation you do what you have to, but it’s hard to picture yourself doing something like this.
