SIGH - What a week!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First a car accident, then I lose presidency for student council (got pretty ugly) and NOW I slipped and fell and sprained/strained my arm and it wouldn't have been that bad but it's my right arm and I can't do much with it now.

I haven't gone to the doc's yet. I know for sure it's something, mom said probably an A grade sprain, but won't know unless I get an x-ray...which I do not have time for. My mom's a nurse and she keeps telling me to go, but I HATE doctors and I'd rather suffer. I've given myself first aid and I'm trying to put off the doc's until monday afternoon because if it's gotta be put up, I won't be able to type any of my essays that have to be finished for monday. *SIGH* I know I'm being stupid and could make it worse, but desperate times call for desperate messures.

I guess I should stop whinning now. Back to homework.

Go to the doctors, a friend of mine has a pretty much identical attitude as you to doctors and injuries etc. and he walked around for a week with a broken hand thinking it was a sprain and that his self administered first aid was fine, he could move his fingers and the pain wasn't *that* bad etc.

..and really having hands that work is pretty important so to do anything that could make the healing take longer is very counter productive in the long term.

Sorry to hear about your bad week, but I'd also go to the doctor's as soon as possible. Suppose it's a fracture, and you suffer permanent nerve damage because it wasn't treated?

Aww im sorry that your having such a bad week. I hope your arm gets better soon. I agree with the others, you should get it taken care of by a doctor.
