The Top TenXW
Cancer is a horrible disease! Some people in my entire family had cancer. I hope one day there is a cure for cancer. I wish cancer wouldn't kill so many people. I am so glad I haven't had cancer and I am only 15 years old.
I lost somebody to cancer. His name was David Bailey. Iam still missing him. Whenever I see his house I just cry. I used to blame his death on myself. Because before he died I was naughty. At least he is in a better place where angels and peace and doves and god and Jesus are
It attacks you from the inside out, terrible way to go... It destroys your bodies cells.

freddie mercury died of aids its the worst thing going - rockit(primejive)
You can survive Cancer but you can't escape AIDS. - gamefreak198
can be spread through sexual contact, whereas cancer cannot.
At least with cancer you MIGHT survive, but not with AIDS.V22 Comments
Severe internal bleeding and at least a week of your organs being reduced to mush. Then after all the pain and suffering you die of hypovolemic shock from blood loss.
I must be really brave - I've read the Hot Zone while eating despite all the blood and gore of it. Ebola seems not only to be extremely lethal, it also seems to be quite fascinating. But of course, I always find the more deadlier germs/diseases more interesting than the milder ones.
Don't forget Ebola's sibling, Marburg - It's not as deadly as Ebola, but it still has a very high mortality rate and the same sort of symptoms. Nice or what?
If you don't fear death, go and walk into a biosafety level 4 facility. I guarantee you won't find AIDS or Cancer there. What you will find is the most frightening, terrifying disease known to man. You can pick a strain, but your chance of survival will always be the lowest possible.
Ebola is a disease straight from hell. It has killed 10,000 people alone last year. I thought periods were bad but once you get this disease, your organs are literally dead! How is this not top. I hope this disease gets wiped out. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZV24 Comments
Have you see the videos of people with rabies trying to drink water and can't because of hydrophobia, pretty sad stuff. Worst part is that their basically doomed.
Rabies is scary. I've seen this episode of monsters inside me and this girl was having strange mood changes, trouble focusing eyes and collapsing into seizures and shaking and then she died.
Swine flu isn't dangerous and you can escape cancer but with rabies you are dieing a slow death.
You can suffocate badlyV11 Comments
It is a hopeless disease. There is no cure, no treatment, very little help or understanding. It strips the person you love of every dignity and ounce of themselves, reducing them to a vegetable. Not only that the people left behind watch this helpless. In any other disease medicines or food might be withdrawn if there was no symptom control. In this case you watch as they become childlike. Husbands and children become carers, carers with no hope or relief. Just when you think it can't get worse it does. My mum has had Alzheimer approx 6 years she is 61 she will die old, 70-80 but really she die died years ago. Now we just watch and care as best we can as the depression, agitation, hallucination and language reduce as well as incontinence and other physical symptoms.
This person looks old, not like the picture I see in my head when I think mum. This person looks at me like she has never seen me unlike the mum I remember. There is so much more to say but I do not have the words to express
My grandpa has Alzheimers... I can't even explain how horrible it is. It takes such a toll on you and your family. I can barely remember who my grandpa really is. Most people die physically before they die mentally. But with Alzheimers, the patient dies on the inside years before they are technically 'dead'. Pray that no one in your life EVER get Alzheimers. It changes everything forever. And there is nothing that can help it.
I have very bad experience, because my best friend, my everything, my whole world, got this disease. It was my mother, the worst disease is Alzheimer's at that moment I wish my mother had cancer not Alzheimer, when I see commercial about or in newspaper it hurts me very much.
I just lost my grandmother to dementia. It was a slow and painful process and at the end the infection from pressure ulcers took over. Thank god she is in peace and no longer suffering.V16 Comments
This is a horrid condition. A few friends had/have it. There are 4 types of Motor Neuron diseases out there 2 of which are fatal, one of which is not and one which is not fatal unless it mutates into one of the fatal two. ALS is one of the two fatal ones and unfortunately the most common motor neuron disease. In a few cases, ALS is not fatal and in a few other cases, people with ALS live longer than the usual 2 to 5 years (Stephen Hawkings being a famous example). But in most cases, it is a cruel and horrid death.
ALS is horrible because it is so unpredictable and much worse than some of the ones gone before it here. TB, Aids, Parkinsons, etc. are all manageable conditions that used to be much much worse. Cancer as a generic term hides the fact that some cancers are much worse than others. Probably, pancreatic cancer, brain tumours and other such cancers are as bad as ALS but you have to get specific with cancers. But ALS usually offers no hope at all. While rare, there are pancreatic cancer survivors who make a full recovery. The lucky ALS victim is the likes of Stephen Hawking: alive but totally paralysed. So, this is a disease that kills you in 3-5 years usually or else leaves you completely paralysed in rare cases. Lovely.
The problem with ALS too is that it is not mainstream and wellknown. The very name amiotrophic lateral sclerosis has been considered difficult to remember, hence the term ALS or the even more generic term 'Motor Neurone Disease' (there are a number of less fatal versions of this but ALS is equated with MND because it is the most severe of the MNDs). Furthermore, ALS is confused with MS, Huntington's, muscular dystrophy and other such conditions. ALS is worse than any of these other muscular and motor neurone diseases. Perhaps, Huntington's runs a close second as worst disease? Same type of thing only one generally gets 10-20 years out of this one compared to ALS's 3-5.
ALS is the worst of all diseases- it robs you of your body and dignity but leaves you with your mind. You are unable to communicate, use your limbs eat, swallow your own saliva or even hold up your head yet you know exactly what is going on around you. There is no cure and no fast death. I can not imagine a worse disease to get.
This is horrible. Your mental state is intact people who have aids have to suffer through it to die at least people can beat cancer!V10 Comments
no cure for this disease prevents you from sleeps slowly eats away at the thalamous and eventually kills you its the worst prion disease if one member of your family has it you have a 50/50 chance of getting it - Elvisjackson
my grandmothers side carries this horrible gene. I've heard about my previous ancestors dying with it & witnessed my grandmother & uncle die with it. I pray that I am not a carrier of this gene.
With this, it seems there is no escape, even temporarily, from the reality of your imminent end. One can usually sleep and momentarily forget the disease which ails you, but with this, you're awake for the whole thing, at least to a degree.
No cure and a complete inability of sleep, leading to inevitable health deterioration and death. Worst disease you can ever get. If you get diagnosed with THIS prion, you. Are. SCREWED.V10 Comments
I've had diabetes since two weeks after my first birthday, and I wouldn't wish this on the worst person on earth. I've taken over two hundred thousand needles from it, have three diseases caused by it, and have developed chronic depression due to hating my life with it, and extreme anxiety from being bullied as a child for having it. My body is just a big pin cushion, and I'm covered in scar tissue. When my bloods are low, I hallucinate, and when they're high, I feel so much pain that I want to die. It's the reason behind five suicide attempts, and the reason I have to go to therapy.
I've lost two aunts to diabetes, and my third is in the hospital, blind, paralyzed, with kidney failure from it. I've died four times and I'm not even twenty-one.
There is no cure for it, and my children have a fifty-percent chance of getting it. It weakens my body to the point that a small shove will bruise me, and I'll get sick at just the tiniest thing. Cancer at least has a cure, and get's publicity for how bad it is. There are four types of diabetes, and most people assume there is only type two, and assume it's caused by being fat and blame us for it. I was diagnosed at one years old, and I was a small, skinny little baby.
I've had the real Diabetes (type 1) for over ten years now. Since I was seventeen I've been injecting myself on average 5 - 6 times a day and pricking my fingers and forcing blood out of the end so to test the sugar content of my blood. If I tally the total number of injections then I would estimate it to be almost 19, 000. Now remember that in those ten years I have not had a day off. Every day, more injections, into already bruised parts of my body. The bruising never goes, the humiliation of your own body turning against you and coming very close to killing you is too much. I've woken from the warped nightmares of hypoglycemic comas more times than I can remember and every new day is a test to prevent the next episode from being the last. There is no end to this disease, it will get you eventually.
I have diabetes (type 1) and to me its not that bad. Sometimes I cry because of it. Eventually I started to get sick of taking shots, but then I remind myself that if I don't I will die. - Froot_Loops
I have the type-1 version, and although it's bad I don't feel like it should be on the same level as Cancer and AIDS.V12 Comments
I watched my mother deteriate over 17 years before this destructive cruel disease killed her off. Now I am watching the same thing happen to my younger sister and its heartbreaking. She can only lie down day and night and is now starting to choke even on the milk shakes she can only feed on. She will soon have a tube through her stomach to feed her. This disease affects the nervous system and shrinks the brain. No one can be cured from this. It is a slow and awful way to die
River dance, that's funny but it is more like standing on 2 different waterbeds at the same time. Definitively in the top 5. The 3 top reasons for dieing from it are accidents, suicide and choking because you can't swallow
Someone I know has this disease and it's frightening for him, he simply doesn't know what to do with himself as his motor functions disappear and his moods fluctuate. He's such a nice man, I wouldn't wish this disease on my worst enemy.
It is not very niceV5 Comments
My grandfather died of this disease. There is a sort of cure. If you fight and they get the dosage wright then you live longer. It a genetic thing and is actually passed through the mother but normally a man gets it. Early signs are hands shaking when you sit down and aren't doing things with your hands. I watched a man who could put me on his shoulders and laugh all day die on a hospital bed in a coma like state. He wasn't even alive long enough for the doctors to figure it out. It's bad, really bad.
The victims of the disease are not at fault for their condition and there is no cure, only symptom management, as far as I know. I don't know why rabies is ranked higher/worse than this. But then again there is a lot I don't know.
The legendary boxer Muhammad ali has this disease when he went to joe fraziers funeral that's when people started to know this even though he had since 1984
Horrid disease - an ongoing bereavement...V4 Comments
My mom got it and she almost died but she did die but god brout her back to life
Even though there are tablets against this, many people who cannot afford these drugs easily die of malaria. It is worse then any other disease because the parasite injects the disease in without you knowing so you could get it and still not know.
Guys.. Half of the people who has ever died, has died from malaria. All should vote this as number 1 unless you're voting in that form of how much it ruins your life.
So sad and so nerve racking if you have it!
They have found a cure to it but you can only get it in North America. - SuperBacca
YOU CAN TRY IT AND YOU WILL KNOW WHAT'S THE WORST IT IS.
80 deaths and 100 cases as of today - ronluna
Very dangerous, see SARS, and this disease caused many deaths. - ronluna

Your in a world conspiracy, your memories shot, voices surround you, your in hell. Life is a dream, each day is strange, scary, everyone is demons. Can't tell if your alive or dead, all your senses messed up, your número uno target, insomnia, depression/joy. Conversation is weird, big shun from society, can't make friends, no one wants to date you, your mind isn't "yours". Many suicide attempts, aliens, demons, ghosts, psychics, jinn, demons, no truth, only schizo on planet, cursed, hated, people want to abuse you and take advantage of you. Generally have to collect disability. Like a life long LSD trip that you can't escape from, and no guide book or help because the voices don't really speak intelligible English. Basically it feels like you died and the world is waiting to collapse of you, your family, your neighbors. No escape, 5 suicide attempts, can't die, God's curse, infinite hell AKA Schizophrenia.
This disease is the highest death toll in history, over 500 million died of it, the bubonic plague only killed about 200 million.
Very sad and scary.
I have that it just sucks.
It is the worst thing you can imagine. I would love to have cancer instead and die on that. What makes a depression so terrible? You don't have any positive feelings anymore and you think you will never have them again. All I can think of is death and tragedy for the ones I will lose. There can't be a god if there's such a thing as depression.
Here is a tip to get rid of depression look in the good things in life I know how horrible it is but move on I did when I was gonna get married to someone I loved but she broke off from engagement now I am getting married to my ex so see God has plans just don't think about it like if someone close died yes it is natural to be depressed but move on but don't forget about it that would be mean
I suffer from depression. Let me just say that it destroys your happiness and will to live, and it eventually makes living unbearable. I'd rather have a disease that is curable, thank you very much.

Epilepsy is bad the reason why it is bad because you don't know when your going to have one which is a seizure that is what epilepsy really is I have them I had a seizure one time I was talking to my step dad and after I got threw talking to him I laid down and he came down to my house I went to sleep after I got threw talking to him I woke up and I on the couch I had dirt all over me and I had a black eye from were I had fell outside and what made it so bad I did not even know that I had even went outside but I did and I didn't realize it but my step-dad woke me up on the couch and said what happened to you and I said what are you talking about and he said well you have a black eye talking about me I said what I don't have a black eye.but I did and I I also had a couple of wrecks in a car from seizures.because I wasnt taking my medicine like I was post to be so that's why I was having my seizures but when I take my medicine I'm alright but I hope I don't have none taking my medicine I have never had one while on medicine.i had a friend that had seizures to and I watched him when he had one and it was not good he fell straight back and he did not catch hisself he just fell straight back and he also bit his tongue to and blood was running down the side of his face and he started shaking
I've taken a hockey puck to my face, and the pain was nowhere comparable to the anguish experienced due to tonic-clonic seizures. Anguish is a good word - not just pain, but pure intellectual agony of recollecting thoughts blown apart by a seizure.
Epilepsy ranks BELOW the FLU? This list is a JOKE. Have a few seizures and you'll know. People with epilepsy are GODS compared to human diseases that just cause PAIN. Epilepsy is PAIN BEYOND HUMAN COMPREHENSION. Pure mind-blowing pain. That's why it knocks you out. MIND-BLOWING PAIN.
In Pokemon, there was an episode titled "Cyber Soldier Porygon" One scene in it had alternate fast flashing lights of red and blue. It ended up taking over 1500 kids in Japan to hospital. - Animefan12V4 Comments
My boyfriend suffers from Crohn's disease and he has done since he was 12 years old. He is now 25. This disease has spread from his mouth where his lips swell and he has ulcers and blisters that kept on reoccurring then it moved down to his chest and lungs where more ulcers appeared and he was unable to breath properly without being in pain. After it traveled down into his stomach and gave him multiple stomach ulcers which was unbearably painful when eating therefore the malnutrition began and hr drastically lost weight. To treat the Crohn's and this time he was on steroids which allowed him to gain weight but too much and for a young boy in secondary school was really difficult.
He eventually came off the steroids and got back to a healthy weight when the Crohn's then moved location to his anus causing terribly uncomfortable abscesses which were continuously coming back after being drained. The doctors where at a loss as to what to do as he began to loose all appetite, developing chronic fatigue and was having to have his bowels open up to 25 times a day. His weight plummeted to a dangerously unhealthy weight for his height and he became dehydrated. This meant the Crohn's was so severe down there the next medical decision was to have surgery and input a colostomy bag. He was only 21.
This was a life saving decision and continued to improve his life and his weight came back up and he was getting back on track. The Crohn's hadn't gone away as it is incurable so now it was in his large intestine. The treatment for this was an infliximar infusion once every 6 weeks. This helped very much until the third week when he would begin to feel all the symptoms again, loss of appetite, fatigue and multiple loose stool and bowel movements.
Finally the final option is to now remove the entire large intestine and rely only on the small intestine. Other than this there are no further treatments he can try. Only to work out the perfect balance. Crohn's is one of the worst diseases when escalated to this level.
I cannot pretend that Crohn's is worse than the other diseases in this list, as on its own it is rarely fatal. However, it is incurable and should be better recognised as a disease that can completely ruin lives.
