i have been very lucky i think. i smashed by head on a wall once. another time i dislocated a finger but i popped it back it
couldn't pop that back
crushed my sciatic nerve
had to crawl on my hands and knees for a week - couldn't sleep for more than 5/10 minutes. Was washing down cocadamol and copraxomol with whisky
permanent nerve damage - constantly feels like my left leg has got pins and needles.
it's happened twice
but when I broke my big toe. Kicked a wall (idiot) and the bone just split. Didn't go to hospital til the morning and that night everytime i turned on my sleep I'd wake up in agony. They ended up having to put a pin in it. But I got a cool scar though so that's ok.
But to illustrate:
You see the end joint in the big toe there? Basically the bone had split so the joint was uneven and a zig zag and not a straight line.
Excruciating and was too embarrassed to actually do anything about it for a good week and a half.
Broke my arm once but it wasn't particularly spectacular. It hurt a lot but probably no worse than the average bone break, is what I'm trying to say.
So the worry is that I don't know how I'll react if subjected to proper, meaty pain. What if I emit a high pitched squeal? Or blub like a little girl? At least I'll probably be in too much pain to care.
* someone threw a rock at my face and it hit my eye. ended up with a blood clot behind my eye, and to clear it up had to have a needle directly into my eye. worst thing i've ever experienced.
* when i was 9 i fell off a fence and onto a loose panel with a nail stuck in it. the nail went straight into my knee, and when i got up the panel was nailed to my leg. that was pretty cool.
Or was it just incredibly uncomfortable/really freaky?
Not sure why I'm curious. Any answer is bound to be horrific.
these questions are making my legs move. i'm not reading this anymore. i regret this whole thread
no actual pain
and again a couple of months before that http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4308617
Usually done under surgery. Wasn't on this occasion.
I'd had an op two weeks earlier and someone had left some dressing in by mistake and it had all gone a bit wrong so I got rushed to A & E where the guy starts prodding around in the wound and then goes "usually I'd do this under anaesthetic but since I've started I'll just get it over with".
They gave me that gas they give women in labour. It doesn't take the pain away but does make you laugh like a motherfucker so everyone looking at you thinks the pain has gone away.
