Can I have someone’s opinion?

The other night, my sister and I agreed to riding electric scooters downtown. At first it was us and our friends. Then a whole group began to form as we found other people who were riding. Long story very short, my sister ended up having a horrific fall. She was knocked unconscious, and I was terrified bc I didn’t know the extent of the damage and it frightened me. She was on the ground and unresponsive for a while. I began sobbing hysterically, as she could not move on her own. Idk if I was in shock but, I didn’t really know what to do. But some people were making me feel like I was being really dramatic, but idk I don’t think I was I was literally just crying. We were drunk, I couldn’t really control it. It was to the point where one guy began screaming at me on the way to the hospital, and calling me a bitch and ended up spitting on me (he spit after we exchanged words). But it’s not like I was falling out and screaming or anything like that, I was just crying mostly bc I had never seen anything like that in real life before. And I had a bad feeling leading up to that night about riding them but I didn’t tell anybody. It felt like nobody understood the absolute dread I felt. Idk, I just want someone’s opinion. Was I being dramatic?


Tbh I was sobbing so hard, I wasn’t really helping too much, I wasn’t sure what to do when I seen her laying there like that. I was terrified. I was trying not to panic before I noticed she was totally unresponsive. No movement at all. I was trying to stay near her, I wanted to pick her head up off the ground but I was scared to move her too much. but people kept dragging me away and saying they would handle it. I wasn’t really sure what to do and it made me feel like I really was being to dramatic. Can I please have some opinions?

Yes ... way too dramatic

In a serious situation, responses like crying hysterically and panicking are counterproductive.

[@1207518,Edashh2399] I wouldn't call it dramatic, but it does interfere with your ability to assess the situation and think rationally.

Yes I totally see what you mean, I tried so hard not to lose it I couldn’t help it. [@1189765,U53RN4M3]

[@1189765,U53RN4M3] I'd say most people don't know what to do in cases like this

I honestly think the same, he’s a punk for picking on a female [@611584,SunnyTheSkeptic]

I hate stuff like that. I don't know what to do. I freeze. One day I was sitting at my table, which was the one on the end, next to the main aisle. Here comes this guy walking, and instead of turning, he keeps walking straight and just falls over right on his face. BOOM!

I sat there. Looked over, other people were looking. Then I think I had to get up for something and looked at his face and seen his lips moving but his eyes were closed. I was soooooooooo freaked out. I went back to my seat. I didn't know what to do.

Then this one lady who acts like she has a mental disability, comes over and starts screaming.... MEDIC!!! MEDIC!!! HELP!!! JOHN!!! The whole time, I'm trying to hide the fact that I'm shaking uncontrollably, because I dunno, I just froze and didn't have a clue as to what to do. And seeing something like that happen, literally 5 feet away from me scared the shit out of me. Someone said his potassium level was low. I dunno, I never ever seen anything like that in my life. I want to say, it was a seizure.

No, I don't think it was being too dramatic. A freak accident or some kind of event can cause people to do weird things. There was a video on Youtube a long time ago, where this cop had to shoot his gun, and had a panic attack like right after that. And the other officer was trying to get him seated on the ground, and telling him it was okay and such.
