It's 2 o'clock in the afternoon, but dammit! I see stars!!


Finger placement.... It's key!!

All week I've been trying to catch up on my filing. Two huge piles of shit to be imaged and to be filed had sat on my desk, taunting me like a rotten .

I'd had enough and decided today was THE day!

So I set to work putting together all the new employee files with the required documents and started to file them in the cabinet one by one.

I was on number five when the earth stood still and my life changed forever.

My left hand was placed flat against the filing cabinet while my right hand slid out the drawer. Discovering I had grabbed the wrong drawer, I needed the one beneath it, I slammed the drawer I'd been pulling open shut.....

Right onto my middle finger on my left hand.

The pain was instant as I stared in horror at my finger, still inside the the drawer, a big red spot already forming under my nail bed.

Stumbling a little and attempting to take a step back, I did indeed see stars. The moment I opened that drawer back up the tears sprung to my eyes and I barely contained a primitive howl.

That hurt like a bitch!

All I can say is, thank God it's Friday.... I don't think I could make it through another workday this week.

Happy Friday!

Been there done that
Hammers hurt when not hitting what you want..
I stood up from my sit on my boat.stepping onto a dry storage hatch it was wet one foot slipped I fall to the deck. Turn like a cat not to land on my face.
I hit on my back and my left elbow hit that unfunny bone.i tell my fishy partner grab my rod reel in my fish. As I lay in my back my left hand is burning like it was on fire.
He said fish was gone. Asked if I was ok I said in a few I'll be fine.
I got up sat in my sit never felt a burning feeling like that before.
Went back fishing.

    Ouch! My eyes were watering as I read this.
It's still sore, but it looks a whole lot better today. There a red dot and the cuticle area is a little purple in color, but it's not all throbbing and red like it was yesterday. Thank God!

    Ouch... But on a Brighter note...If you get your nails done you'll only have to pay for 9...
True story.... I used to work with a woman who had to have one of her big toe nails permanently removed. She would paint her toe skin to make it look like she still had a toe nail.

Nothing broken or crushed, other than my ego. LOL Now I'll have to explain to people I injured my bird finger while shutting a file drawer.

    Owwww....shit!
    I feel your pain!! I've slammed a file cabinet drawer on a finger before and actually punched a hole in the middle of my fingernail and it bled quite a bit. Had a lot of trouble with it and my doctor finally had me go for x-rays to make sure I hadn't broken it or chipped the bone. I hadn't, but I do have nerve damage from it. Hope yours heals with no problems. But it's probably going to hurt like a bitch for a while.
It's definitely sensitive and hurts like a bitch... Thankfully no holes in the middle of my nail or bleeding. Those drawers are dangerous, I tell ya!!

    Did you curse? A long cursing spell helps with the pain. So I hear.
I did not because there were people everywhere outside my office. Most of them don't know I curse like a sailor on my own time.

    I understand the pain, If the finger has enough blood under the nail to throb, a good relief is to put hole in the fingernail in the center of the bloody spot. I know it might seem a bit primitive but you are going to lose the nail any way, , several ways to make this drain hole, one just take a knife and scrape in small layers of it, till you strike gold, I hear some prople that a hot needle and puncture the nail , I never done that , but I have had sucess with a knife , just slowely scrape away the nail in a small area and it will relieve the throbbing!!! You do have to see blood!!! Then just put a bandage and some triple antibacrterial cream on it .. Hope it gerts better, you did have good intentions!!
I knew the minute I saw the red spot the nail would be coming off... Yikes! I've never lost a nail before, let alone the nail on my middle finger!
