One thing you don’t want to do after having a big night out and getting totally wasted, is fall asleep in the freezing Canadian winter. Which is what happened to an Australian woman from New South Wales who passed out after going out partying in Prince Albert, Canada.

She recounted her terrible ordeal in a gallery post on Imgur under the user name TheBassistsMuse. And to her credit, even though what happened to her is horrendous and she still may end up losing fingers, she injects the post with humor and remains upbeat and positive. Maybe because she’s still alive after spending a good few hours out in the cold.

Check out her post below with some of her quotes detailing what went on. Check out the full thing here.

“Im an Australian and I’m really fucking stupid. The background is basically i got way too wastey-pants one night in a new town in Saskatchewan (pronounced “Sas – catch – you – wan” if you’re curious) trying to make some friends and settle in. I was blackout drunk by midnight, with no phone, no money and no idea where i was and i couldn’t find my way home.”

“This is me and my friends a few hours before i disappeared. (I’m in the middle) Last i was seen was 2.30am. Now don’t mistake for this for a sob story, theres no complaining here. Just pure unadulterated idiocy. I went full retard.”

1 - So this one time in Canada i got frostbite Some of the images are pretty graphic Just a heads up

 

“This was the photo of my fingers about 20 minutes after i was found. Apparently a symptom of hypothermia is tiredness. So i was found in a ball trying to sleep. My fingers were also notably purple. It was 5.45am when i was found. At 6.30 a nurse told me that best case scenario i keep my fingers. Worst case, i lose my hands.”
2 - Due to drunkness - scene missing Cut to me with moderate hypothermia and frostbite

 

“The next few days i was taken care of at the hospital by some fucking insanely cool nurses and doctors. Everyone wanted to check out my sweet blisters and find out how long an Aussie can withstand the cold before almost dying. Apparently 3 hours is pretty piss-weak.”
3 - But when it comes to frostbite its mostly a waiting game

 

“While in a flurry of nurses and bandages and medication i was given time with the local specialist called…Wait for it….Dr. Freezin!!! I know! My injury has its own pun! When people say theres a silver lining to every situation they are right. And its usually a pun.

Anyway, he talked me through how my fingers are going to blister and puff. Explicitly told me not to pop them cos thats his job in a few days.”
4 - And now for my favourite bit of the story

 

“So this was the day he popped them. And the biggest they reached. The pain and pressure at this point was verging on unbearable. I was taking opiates the whole time. Frostbite recovery is pretty well known for its pain, apparently. Doc Freezin described to me that your skin and such can freeze and die on a cellular level. The bodies need to regenerate it and the inflammation is the hurty bit. My hands ranged from “frostnip” to 3rd and 4th degree frostbite.”
5 - So this was the day he popped them

 

“My next visit with Doc Freezin, he was wearing an apron and a face mask with a plastic shield over his head. With my hand over a metal tray, he cut my blisters with a scalpel. Puss went everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I think i even got the hospital curtains. After a few minutes i was completely deflated and this was the result.”
6 - My next visit with Doc Freezin he was wearing an apron and a face mask with a plastic shield over his head

 

“And now into recovery. My hands are healing and i can use them again by this point. Dr.F said i’ll probably keep all of my fingers. The only ones to worry about is my left pinky and right middle fingertip. I won’t find out until June.

If i lose them i wanna make a sweet custom made prosthetic. Just like Margot Tennenbaum in The Royal Tennebaums. Fuck yeah.”
7 - And now into recovery

    Stupid girl, indeed.

    • Egghead Einstein

      Yeah, as if you’d have thought about frostbite drunk as hell when you come from Australia… your comment actually makes you more stupid to insinuate any young womenstill drinking regularly would think “Oh, I better not rest in case i fall asleep and in case nobody wakes me and in case i get frostbite” Yes, young women are generally just that astute to danger. Yup.

      • Jack Crowe

        Your own comment was self serving in stupidity. You answered it and conclude what I said that she is stupid, and I am assuming you are as well. No one will get “drunk as hell” in that climate. I don’t know how old you are or whether you have psychological or alcoholic issues but I recommend you take care of them soon.

        Fuckstick. You’ve trolled, now move along.

  • Swordfishtrombone

    We all make mistakes, and sometimes really stupid ones too – what defines us more than our mistakes, is how we handle the consequences. Getting drunk like a skunk, and falling asleep outside, in the snow, is indeed a dangerously stupid thing to do, but I can’t think of a more gracious, and witty way of dealing with the aftermath than how she did it. Enjoyed reading that. Hope she’ll be able to keep all her fingers. :)
