This is what they call multiple displacement fractures because the bones of my toes are completely displaced and not connected anymore. Tomorrow I find out if I need pins in my foot or if they can just set it and cast it. I’m grossed out but completely fascinated.
Apparently over the next few weeks I can look forward to getting ripped arm and chest muscles, severe knee and hip and palm pain, and falling on my ass in the rain because crutches aren’t designed for that.
If I went to Hogwarts Madam Pomfrey would have knit my bones back together already
I am in a great deal of pain right now and can’t sleep and my pain pill hasn’t kicked in yet and I want the fucking splint off I don’t think I can do this
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
Give me a break
So as it turns out, I was not blowing my injury out of proportion. I have multiple displacement fractures in my right foot - meaning that my last 2 toes on my right foot are broken with the bones completely separated. I went to patient first so they gave me painkillers and a temporary splint and crutches - but I still need to go to an orthopedic surgeon on Monday to get it set and see if I need pins/permanent cast.
Unfortunately this means that, aside from the pain, I won’t be able to drive for at least a week - so I can’t do the 1 hour commute to UD. I don’t have sick time or personal days or vacation, so I basically had to call out of work for a week with no pay. When I do go back, I’ll have to find like a hotel or something and stay there for a few weeks and I’ll still be crutching around and unlikely to be much help. Since I’ve been at this job for exactly 2 months yesterday, I am now incredibly worried about my financial situation and my job standing because I would like to not be fired.
To add insult to injury, I had to check out from my campus apartment today and the elevator was broken, so I had to crawl up the stairs to the 3rd floor and then my mom had to move the rest of my stuff by herself. The apartment was also trashed because my roommates’ friends who are staying there are assholes and there was pot everywhere. I told the CA it wasn’t mine and left it there so my roommates will probably get kicked out and I can’t even care because today has been such a shit day
she’s beauty and she’s grace, she plays 8 different people who have the same face
I am in a great deal of pain and would like more effective ice or any sort of painkiller but I can’t walk
You know what I hate? When people get pissed off when you tell them you don’t want them to touch you. Like excuse me, I don’t actually want you to touch my arm. I don’t want a hug right now. I don’t give a shit if you’re family. I don’t care if the phrase “I don’t want to be touched” puts you off. Just don’t fucking touch me.
So…I think I broke my foot…or at the very least dislocated something…because there’s a bone that isn’t where it’s supposed to be…and I may or may not be freaking the fuck out cause I’m home alone and my job is literally standing on my feet for 8 hours a day and driving for 3 hours…
