I know exactly how you feel. The first time I hurt myself in the kitchen I make a loud announcement about my pain to whoever is in ears reach (usually the cats and dogs). But if it happens again, I just get pissed. I'm sorry, I know how that feels. At least you finished the meal!! I've been known to just walk away, lol. Hope you get a very relaxing evening!

Ooooo licia! OWIE!!! I have been there. For me its either a "burny" day or a "cutty" day. If I'm injuring myself it seems to be one or the other, thankfully not both at once.

katybar, crap! I know what you mean about being sick of being sick! Can you bump up your fluid to help with the BP situation? I sure hope you turn a corner ASAP and feel better soon.

sending you a great big hug!! muahhhhhhh you're in my thoughts sweetie.

Thanks hun, and don't worry, your secrets are safe

Ya know I think this venting forum actually works. And it's so much cheaper than therapy.

I came here to vent and seeing your post made me feel ashamed of myself. What I was going to say is this: I go for ages and don't hurt myself at all then twice in one day on each hand I've had an accident. Cutting up the veggies for dinner I cut my ring finger to the nail from the side then when I was reaching for something in the pantry i knocked a can off the shelf and it hit on my right hand between my thumb forefinger and wrist. Now my right arm hurts all the way to my elbow and when I pick up something with my left hand I feel where my finger is cut. I know! I'm a wuss! but it makes me so mad to do such stupid things and all in the same day. Glad dh took care of cleanup after dinner...or I may have been calling 911.
yewhie!! on thanksgiving 2 years ago i had company and made a lovely dinner. when it came time to carve the turkey i was removing the whole breast to carve, i made the first cut and then stuck my fingers in to pull it back and cut to remove from frame. all of a sudden i felt like i got stung so i pulled my hand out and saw i had cut my middle finger at the first knuckle almost to the bone. black blood came out. i calmly said thats a bad one. i wrapped it and heldit up put pressure on my wrist and in about 5 minutes it stopped bleeding enough to wash and wrap in gause. i wasn't worried about infection because it cleaned itself out. then i proceeded to inspect turkey no blood so i carved and we finished a wonderful dinner with fam and friends. i was in pain and embarresed.

so i know how a cut like yours can sting like a dickens. just be sure not to reopen it while doing chores till it knits closed.

sorry this turned into a time delayed vent!!

Katy,
I know just how you feel..It's taken me since 2006 to get back to where I was when my kidney's failed..At first I wanted to sleep all the time and you know what I did, each day things changed..Let your body sleep, eat your bland diet and just let yourself recouperate..Don't rush anything, you could just end up with replase.One morning you will wake up ,shower and have a wonderful day on the go..Don't rush, just enjoy that you are on the mend..I find now I can watch my grand kids again, I'm having a blast painting them t-shirts and cooking our Sunday dinners again...It will happen..I promise..JUst rest and let nature take over.

Things like this are a combination of mistakes and ooops...Little Ethan really thought it was his fault. We have finally convinced him we all had a hand in it..Now he isn't so unhappy. The pup is as crazy as ever and loves us al..Things are being closely watched and there are smiles all round.So sin't feel as if you said anything wrong..You just echoed what many of us felt.

Flushed

Did anyone read about the puppy being flushed down the toilet? It is supposedly on You Tube. The little boy wanted to give his puppy a bath and flushed him down the toilet. No, they managed to get him out! Can you believe it! Little Cocker Spaniel, what a little bundle. What kids won't think of to do! I just can't believe they got him back. Good story for once. Beside the one on here. I apologize if I get too involved w/dogs. Just cannot help it.
