Trying to STOP


Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Ok tonight has turned into:



Let me back up. I was rushed today after work. I had an hour to come home after work, eat, change, get my stuff, and get to training for a new puppy. I thought slicing up an apple with peanut butter would get me through the training class (and keep my tummy quiet). Unfortunately I wasn't able to distinguish my thumb from the apple. Yep, great slice right at the corner of the nail. Nice and deep too.

I kept pressure on it for the entire hour before I cancelled my dog. I think the client understood that I didn't want to bleed on the puppy. Having to cancel a dog puts me in a horrible mood, especially when it is because I did something stupid. I munched on the cut apple while holding the paper towel on my finger.

Hubby decided that wasn't dinner so he made me an omelet - decent dinner and still well within calories. I kept bleeding, by this point through my second paper towel. And now it was hurting.

Hubby went to the store to get me some quick stop and liquid bandage. The bag included 2 candy bars. Did the quick stop (hurt), brushed on the liquid bandage (BURNED), and ate 1 candy bar. I just caught myself putting PEANUT BUTTER on the second candy bar while watching the blood slowly pool under the liquid bandage.

This needs to STOP. The eating and the bleeding! So I came here. I can't exactly exercise. I still have this stupid cold that is messing with my balance and now I have a finger that would be a buffet for Dracula!



As soon as I stop bleeding./

    I LOVE that you were spreading peanut butter on your second candy bar. I don't often binge, but when I do it can look a LOT like that.

    Oh no! I think I have a handbook that says if something bleeds that long, an ER would probably be a good idea. Hope you and the thumb feel much better very soon!! Take care of yourself first, then get the rest done and you've got a keeper for a hubby emoticon .

    You never listen! Didn't I tell you last week just how dangerous eating an apple can be? And some idiot in some far off place once stated that one a day would keep a Dr away? Maybe that's why he was banished so far off.


Sorry you had such a rough night. Hoping you heal quickly.

Take care and much love!!!!

    if the blood hasnīt stopped after 10 minutes you should get it checked out.maybe the cut is deeper than you think and you might need a stith or two. emoticon

    Ouch! It's scary when bleeding doesn't stop. Last time I did that I ended up needing nine stitches in the tip of my thumb. It still aches from time to time, ten years later.

    Wish your day had gone a bit better for you. Tomorrow is a new day with fresh opportunities.
Hope you feel better soon. It's difficult to be on top of our game with a congested head.

    Oh goodness, that cut sounds pretty bad. A home remedy that helps stop bleeding, even on a deep cut is cayenne pepper. It helps to your blood clot quickly, you can sprinkle it directly onto the cut or make a paste with the pepper and a bit of water and apply it that way. It's going to sting but works quite well. I hope that cold gets better soon, do try to get some rest and take care of yourself.

    OWWWWW! That sounds like a bad cut. Are you okay? I hate cutting myself! And even if you ate some candy bars, you know you are not going to eat candy bars every day. candy bars are an occasional thing and you can handle that. Heal quickly!

    OUCH!!!

Hope you didn't need stitches!

It's funny that you went for the candy bar because, with my shoulder injury, I've been eating my silly face off. Could it be stress?

Heal quickly!

    That just bites. However many you need to stay home and rest cause you been sick and that was the only way you would. Just a thought.

    I hate when I do stuff like that. Sorry you had to cancel your appointment. I hope you feel better by now. I saw your status that the bleeding had stopped, but I hope you feel better about cancelling and that your cold is starting to ease up.
