Thumb And Games.



So there is a strong chance I have fractured my thumb. (Pauses for sympathy comments) It bloody hurts and I can't bend it, It has also turned just the shade of blue I have been looking for, for my bathroom,  (Do you think Dulux will colour match it?) 

Thumbs are important. (Valuable piece of information, that)




Now I did know this but I didn't realise quite how much I used mine before hurting it. Now even typing makes me shriek in pain, I am currently typing with just two fingers, making it quite slow going, and occasionally i forget and hit the space bar with my thumb, resulting in some extremely bad language and my Mac now flinching every time I go near it. ("Don't say mean things to me, don't say mean things to me. Take me to my happy place")

Let us never talk again about how I am managing to wipe my bottom. (and how often I have now washed the bandages) even lighting a cigarette hurts, (Well they do say smoking is bad for you) and you know the old saying used before you smack your child, "This is going to hurt me more than it will hurt you"?

SO FUCKING TRUE. 

My son has already offered to cut my thumb off for me, his view is that once the pain from the removal has settled, I wont keep catching it and screaming like a small goat having a nightmare. (A couple more days and I may take him up on that offer)

Now there is absolutely no point in this post, (I can't even think of a good closing question to entice you to leave comments) I just wanted to share my pain with you. (stop laughing)

Um, what temperature can I wash bandages on?

(Oh hang on, I have a better one) 

So share with me your broken bone stories, Cheer me up with your tales of woe and sorrow and make me feel less stupid. 

Let me know.

  1. My broken bones.


    Imagine a 10 year old geeky girl (before geek chic,yes, cringe). In a hospital having a full length leg plaster cast removed. The blissful feeling of being able to scratch your knee cap after 6 hot sweaty leg weeks. Now watch as she falls off the hospital bed and breaks her other leg.

    Yes, that was me.

    Imagine same girl.slightly older. Happily mucking about on a rope swing. 4 hours later in a leg cast and an arm cast, both full length ones.

    Yes, me again!


    Older again and back in plaster, this time with a broken elbow and a fractured ankle...

    Want to play guess who?


    I may of been slightly clumsy.

    We won't play he how many times have you had stitches game, I'd win....

    1. Eeeeeeeeeeeek. Ouch indeed! I hit my flip flopped foot on a 50p ride metal sit on horse before and fractured it.

      Not one of my best stories, I should have said I hurt it playing football or something.

  6. I was running to catch a train after work one dark evening a few years back, and as I ran round a corner I just managed to avoid a guy on a BMX as he whizzed past me. "That was lucky", I thought, just in time to look back where I was running and snack directly into another guy on a BMX, following the first. Smash! His bike went into my stomach, his head went straight down onto my nose, and I fell backwards onto my arse leaving a rather impressive arc of blood in my wake. Broken nose, chipped glasses, cut cheek (rimless glasses aren't great under impact) AND his bike broke my phone. But he did appear to have concussion so after spending a while looking after him whilst the first BMX rider went to get his brother and a car to drive him home, he went home with his brother and I calmly walked off to my train to travel home with a face caked in blood. Gory but I look back abd laugh now. Moral: never run around a corner when you can't see ahead.

  10. I was once shouted at by the pizza delivery guy for taking too long to answer the door (home alone, and on the loo when he arrived) and I was too crap to stand up for myself and shout 'I WAS HAVING A WEEEE' to him.

    I was so annoyed with myself for being feeble that once he'd gone I kicked a chair. And broke my toe. Because I smushed the bones into each other, the joint doesn't bend now. So, perhaps it's a good, permanent reminder to stand up for myself! Or never get pizza? One or the other, anyway...

  11. I was on my way home from a temp job, jumped on the train that arrived at the time mine was due, & realised about 2 minutes after pulling out of the station that this wasn't actually my train. Got off at the next station to change platforms & get a train going the right way. Going over the station footbridge, sun in my eyes, missed the step, fell off my wedges & broke my left ankle in 3 places. Moral? Wear Sunglasses? Check train destinations? Don't Wear Wedges? I dunno.

    Fast forward 7 1/2 years. To the sunshine of the Dominican Republic (better than Yorkshire, where the original incident took place). I went to get my eyebrows waxed while OH got a massage. Came back to my bed, fancied a cocktail (it was 2pm, after all), head to the beachbar, down some wonky stone steps. Fall A over T and fracture my right ankle, spend 2 nights in a Dominican hospital & completely bugger up the 2nd week of my holiday. Apparently this was a worse break than the first one, though only one fracture rather than 3. I dunno. Moral? Don't get your eyebrows waxed? Don't get your own drinks?

    The final part of the 2nd story is that the oh-so-helpful Thomsons rep didn't actually tell the airline I was flying back in plaster, so I was in a standard seat in the middle of the plane, and unable to stand on my foot. Do you know how long a ten hour flight is when you can't go to the loo?

  13. Fell down the stairs in a pair of Spice Girls platform trainers and broke three bones in my foot/ankle. Had the honour of the consultant telling me it was one of the most complicated fractures he'd seen. Go me! also have broken a front tooth and a wrist by deciding to cycle a bike with no shoes on through a pothole.

  14. I don't have any broken or fractured bones but I do have two black big toenails and one may come off. Does that count?

  15. I was 13 and went on a school ski holiday to france. The first day on the slopes, I was too busy checking my boots, clothes etc, and didn't hear the instructors warning.
    I went the wrong way, and fell, badly. This resulted in a broken right arm! I ended up in a french hospital for the day, ending up with a massive cast, and had to spend the rest of the week of the trip sat watching my classmates ski from the chalet balcony.

    Moral - Don't ski.

    Hope you feel better soon! x

  16. I had an argument with a chest of drawers. Ended up punching it in a temper completely forgetting it was made of the solidest of solid woods. Broke my hand :(

  17. Usual thing nothing for 30 or so years then whoomph flat on my back with a spiral fractured ankle, broken and twisted all in one. Cue a week in hospital with wailing women, hideous food, and eventually surgery- an anaesthetic that made me violently sick and I couldn't use crutches for love nor money so I hobbled around on one leg with a zimmer frame for 6 weeks x fab
