22 People On The Horrible Gut Feeling They Couldn’t Shake (That Turned Out To Be Right)

These stories from Ask Reddit will remind you to follow your gut.

19. She died from breast cancer

“When my husband phoned me to say my SIL’s breast cancer was back. The first time she was diagnosed I was calm and positive. She got treatment and went into remission. After the second phone call 3 years later I had my first full scale panic attack. Everyone else in the family stayed positive, but she died just a year later.” — NauntyNienel

20. I inadvertently saved a friend from a car crash

“My friend asked me for a ride home. I told him I wasn’t going his way and he was like ‘okay, I’ll catch a ride with those people.’ I wasn’t a huge fan of the people he was going to go home with, so I said fuck it and gave him a ride.

Turns out the kids who were going to take him home decided to speed down a windy, wooded road near his house at 80MPH. They hit something and flipped the car multiple times. They all lived, but barely. The EMTs said that if they were bigger kids (they were all scrawny and under 5’10”) they would’ve been crushed.

My friend who almost went with them is 6’2. He absolutely would’ve died that day.” — fwooby_pwow

21. Her friend overdosed and suffered from a heart attack

“Not me, but my coworker. She got a call last week that her sister in law didn’t show up for work and didn’t call or anything. She’s been working three jobs recently and was complaining she needed a good night’s sleep. Coworker said she probably slept through the alarm clock, but her husband insisted that she go home and check on her because it wasn’t like the SIL to just not show up for work. Coworker was annoyed, but did it since her house was only 20 mins away.

Coworker gets there and it turns out she had overdosed on some sort of opioid, and then had a heart attack. Oxygen levels were extremely low, and paramedics said that if coworker hadn’t gotten home when she did, SIL would have been dead within minutes. Thank god her husband had felt that something was wrong. Always go with your gut.” — juliet17
