    you know what? never mind. hope you feel better WaM.

    yeah, it's incredible to observe how your mind and body behave when you injure yourself! this is my first major injury of any kind and it's totally a lame one

    but yeah, they numbed my finger up pretty good before they stitched it back on. the numbing process was the worst part. I have about twelve tiny dots around the base of my finger where they injected the anesthetic, and every time they did it it felt like a tiny fishing hook dragging my entire finger away

    seriously, the worst part

    12? It should have only taken 4 to block the whole finger.

    yeah, she tried to do it with 4, but I could still feel half of my finger and I really did not want to feel anything at all

    maybe she was an intern, but whatevs

    i was taking apart an old computer once and the hard drive wouldn't come out

    after jerking it around a bit it flew out and i ended up putting a rather small gash on my thumb knuckle.

    it bled a lot

    but now i have a scar shaped like an L and that is the first letter of my girlfriends name so it is all DESTINY

    It really is. I cut up my left thumb pretty good on two different occasions and had to get stitches. It's horrible because it's not just one awful shot, it's several, and it just hurts more and more. It's not even like a regular shot, you can just feel the shit they inject swelling up your fingertip and it feels likes it's going to explode. Ugh. Horrible.

    my back yard when i was a kid was a big hill that turned into someone else's backyard at the bottom.

    like it was the back of their house and they had a picnic table and everything back there

    so one year we were sledding

    and whoops ramming my head into the picnic table

    8 stitches i think, still got the indent on my head.

    i imagine it to be like standing on a city sidewalk during a hot summer day doing your best to spray all the little children running back and forth to cool them off.

    only you're spraying them with liters of blood and you run out after like five minutes.

    also, one time we were playing soccer in gym class

    i went to kick the ball

    so did this other kid

    but he missed and kicked my foot

    specifically my big toe knuckle

    i walked on it and limped for a month before i finally went to a doctor

    the knuckle was crushed

    they had to go in and take it out bit by bit and replace it with a metal knuckle.

    i've only gotten stitches for when i had my wisdom teeth removed, and that was all done on my rear gums while i was under general anesthesia.

    the mere idea of having a person take a needle and thread to my skin almost makes me retch.

    Oh also one time I was at a party with my cousin and his friend
    and this guy just starts handing out these knives to everybody
    (he had like, this really expensive ridiculous knife collection)
    so our buddy, drunk as fuck, has this huge bowie knife and he starts hacking at this tree with it
    all of a sudden we hear
    "shit
    shit
    i think
    i think i shanked myself"
    This guy has managed to shank himself in the thigh attacking a tree, and is bleeding everywhere.
    Cue my cousin picking him up, and running him to the hospital. ( it was a REALLY small town)

    When I was a kid of say, 6 or so, I stepped on a rake in order to determine whether it would hit me in the head or not, as portrayed in Tom & Jerry cartoons. Smart, I know, but I was a kid and the TV made me do it.

    I was barefoot.

    It was a metal rake with the big curved teeth. Not like a leaf rake, but like for moving dirt around in the garden.

    So I step on the dirty metal rake as hard as i can and watch for the end of the handle to come flying towards my face. The handles pops up an inch or two, and I look down at my foot, puzzled as to why the experiment didn't achieve the desired results.

    I start screaming.

    I managed to cut a huge gash in the skin between first and second toes. With a dirty metal rake.

    My mom, who was about five feet behind me, gardening at the time, immediately jumps into action and gets me inside, cleans the wound, does some quick bandaging, and sets me up on the couch with my foot elevated so she can change her clothes befor driving me to the ER.

    When she returns she tells me that it's time to go to the hospital and I need to get up. I was apparently in a bit of shock, because I told her to go with out me and I would be fine right there on the couch.

    My mom tries to stifle a laugh and gets my step-father to carry me out to the car.

    I got a bunch of stitches, but I don't remember much.

    Dumb kid.

    I used to have a glass plate to use as a light table

    one time I set it on the ground and forgot about it

    and then stepped on it

    and several pieces of glass went into my foot

    I removed most of them but one was worked under the skin and being pigheaded I never told anyone so I just ignored it

    the skin grew over it but I could still see it under the skin

    every few days I would check on it and it faded and faded an faded and then was gone

    so either I dissolved a piece of glass or there's a 1 inch square piece of glass in my left foot to this day

    I had this as goalie except with my hand. The fat piece of shit fractured my pinkie on my right hand and my teacher told me to keep writing with it. Went to the hospital later that day and for some reason they gave me a cast up to my elbow, which made the teacher feel really bad the next day which in turn made me happy.

    Same thing kind of happened to me, but ... opposite.

    I DIDN'T mean to step on it - but I did - and it swung up and hit me, then it fell down and I tripped over it and fell right on top of it.

    Doctors said I was very close to having a lung punctured. Missed narrowly, hoorah for luck.

    I got my tetanus shot that day.

    I jumped over a creek and onto a place where I didn't notice there had been something burnt. Something with nails in it. One went into my foot a wee bit, didn't really hurt much, my tetanus shot was recent enough and any hospital was too far away that we trusted it for then and went out boating on a lake for a bit. Trying to talk when you're going fairly fast and have to do more work with your mouth muscles makes them feel tired and your jaw harder to open, which made for a very worried llama. I didn't end up dying though so I think it ended up alright.
