Subject: OUCH!!! That Hurt!!!

Written By: CatwomanofV on 06/04/14 at 1:55 pm

We all seem to have those little mishaps that find ourselves using every kind of obscenity in the book and sometimes even speaking in tongues.


So, yesterday when we were in the car, we decided to stop at a local farm. We got out of the car and knocked but there wasn't any answer even though there were signs of life around. I got back in the car when I noticed that Carlos was talking to someone. So, I got back out and I have no idea what I did or how I did it but when I went to close the car door while I standing there-I must have been standing too close and the corner of the car door came and slammed me on the chin. My chin started to bleed-not a lot but still. I looked inside my mouth and my gum was bleeding. I was afraid that my tooth came loose but luckily it didn't. The whole thing could have been so much worse but  my chin was a bit swollen & a bit bruised but the cut itself looks like a zit. Last night when I check out my gum, it had a bit of a scab on it.

Today, I was carrying a broom outside and I hit the door frame with my thumb nail and the nail totally bent back. It ripped the nail way below the quick and it started bleeding. So now I know I am going to totally lose the nail well below the quick. The question is, how to hold on to it long enough so it won't hurt too much when the nail finally breaks off where it bent back.

Oh yeah, my toe is still sore from where I stubbed it about 2 & a half weeks ago.


I just seem to be beating myself up. lol. 



Who's next?

Sorry to hear you had to go through all this Cat. As far as nail goes, I've done that a few times. I use
medical tape to hold the nail on and keep it wrapped up with band-aids. It still hurts like the dickens
but it at least eases the pain a little.

All in all, it is good to hear I am not the only one. My shoe size is only a 9 1/2 but I am constantly
cursing my friggen clown feet. I mean, I trip over everything and with multiple disc problems tripping
isn't the best feeling in the world.

Sorry to hear about those injuries Cat.  I too know what it's like.

About 2 years ago, I dropped a heavy box on my foot and caused a blood clot under my big toe nail.  I looked at what I had done and it scared me so bad, I was afraid to look at it again, but I eventually had to.  It took some 3 months for the blood clot to work its way out the end of the nail.

About 4 years ago, I had parallel parked into a spot, and as I was racing to get out of my car and beat the oncoming string of cars that were coming I slammed my finger in the car door and it bled like crazy.  I thought I had severed the finger it hurt so bad, I was afraid to look at it, so when I went to emergency, they looked at it and said it was just a big cut and it would heal.  It took a while, but it healed and left me with a visible scar

Last Monday I tripped and fell on a cement sidewalk , against a cement pillar. Scraped both knees, both hands and hurt my shoulder. I hadn't tripped and fallen down since the 80s  ;D    It was hard to sleep for a few days with the pain. I am OK now.

Yesterday I was sweeping the floor and somehow (??) I hurt my left hand and can't hold anything with it, not even a plastic cup. Dishes are really hard to do.  This evening it's a little better.

As we get older, it takes longer to heal.
Not fun.

I have such a history of falling and tripping. 5 years ago I was trying to run away from a mockingbird who thought our family was trying to invade it's nest in one of our bushes, I scraped my knee and it started to bleed as I was trying to run away from it fast.

I think it is because I replied in this thread but today I was a real klutz. In work I was turning a Van Stone edge
on a small piece of pipe. A Van Stone is just a 90 degree bend at the end of a pipe to hold a flange for a duct
connection. The machine used to turn said edge has two clamping wheels that grab hold of the pipe. To make
the edge you slowly lift the pipe up as it is spinning in the wheels. As I said, this was a small piece of pipe, only
two inches long and a heavy gauge. As I was lifting the pipe it slipped out of the clamping wheels, The force of
me lifting the pipe propelled it upwards slamming into my face. Luckily it didn't loosen a tooth but it did cut both
the inside and outside of my lip which is now fat and purple.

When I was younger I accidently stepped on my own shoe and toppled over on to the sidewalk.  I banged up my shoulder and elbow pretty good and I broke my thumbnail and all because I couldn't stop myself toppling over.  ;D I'm laughing at it now because it's funny but at the time I wasn't laughing at all.  My shoulder had a pretty big bruise about the size of a toonie.  And I wasn't able to do my exercising that I was doing.  :(

I don't know? I think I just took a wrong step and my foot landed on top of my other foot.  I tried moving the foot that was under foot and that sent me into a side step that I couldn't stop myself from getting into.

Yeah I was okay.  I was a little bit stiff afterwards but I survived.  ;D  The funny, ironic, thing is that my mother was in the basement and she didn't hear anything until I got back up on my own and went into kitchen and I was cussing a blue streak.  She asked me what was wrong and I said "I fell and I took the DVD shelf with me."  The fortunate thing is that when my mom attaches something to a wall it doesn't move.  So the shelf didn't go anywhere but the DVDs did.  ;D Which was another LOL moment for me.

Nothing recently, knock on wood, but I have a few stories.

Age 9- Wiping out on my bike and face planting, resulting in needing stitches.

Age 16- During a project in art class my hand slipped with a linoleum scraper and impaled my other hand. Not severe enough for concern, but I was bleeding and had to go to the office.

Age 19- Breaking a bone playing sports. I had to go to the hospital for that and the x-rays were the worst.

Never anything serious at work. I've cut myself a time or two, but not bad enough. I'm happy I haven't stepped on a nail like one guy did! He had to have a shot for that even!  :o

Oh boy.  When I was a kid I took only two blows to the head, when I was a really little kid I busted my lip opened and had to stay in the hospital while the doctors tried to determine how fit my parents were, when I was 8 I had a compound fracture of my wrist from falling off of the monkey bars at school, and then ramming front wheel first into a street lamp on my brother's bike.  I had to get 7 stitches.  :)

speaking of toes getting hit, I remember back in Garden City Park Pathmark before they had shut it's doors, I was pushing carts and I was trying to back a few up and by accident one of the carts I backed up, smashed onto my toenail and later when I came home my toenail was dangling off my toe literally and I had to get it cut off by a podiatrist which I go to now every few months and now I have to dab some foot lotion on it, It grew back in a year.

I remember back in the late 80's I was with My Family and we spent a weekend with friends in an Upstate lodge, I went to take a cold shower and all of a sudden the cold water turned a scalding HOT and My Parents removed me from the shower quickly and I wound up with 2nd degree burns on my back later on. Now that was an unbelievable experience. :o

I was hanging by the monkey bars on the school climber and I guess I didn't have a good enough grip on the bar.  I was contented to just hang on to the bar while the other kids were going up.  I lost my grip on the bar and I fell off the monkey bars with my hands by the side and I felt a bone go out of place.  I was screaming and crying and my dad came running to see what was going on.  I had my friend asking me if I was okay? I got a piggy back ride from my dad to the car and it was off to the emergency room at the Hospital for Sick Children.  My mom telling my dad "be careful with her arm."
I couldn't even move my hand at all.  That's how bad it was.  When the emergency room doctor who was on duty that day came into the room he asked me if I had hurt my back when I fell and I said "no" and that was when he asked me to try and move my hand and I told him that I couldn't.  Then an x-ray revealed a compound fracture of my left wrist.  The resetting of my wrist was the worst part.  First I had to get up on the table and I couldn't do that either because it hurt to put anykind of weight on my wrist.  So the cast tech put the step stool on the other side of the table and I got up on the table.  By the time I had gotten the cast put on school was over and it was time to go home.  I was so worn out that I was ready for bed.  My mom had to wash in between my fingers because the cast tech had gotten plaster on my fingers.
Then I had to go back for another x-ray the next day to make sure my wrist was set properly and to find out how long I would be in the cast.  I missed the first three weeks of summer time that year because of it.  Everyone was trying to get me to sit still while my bones were healing and I was 8.  You couldn't get me to sit still on a bet.
