There's a huge cut on my forehead...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Because i'm CLUMSY! Uhhh I swear I really need a nap today! While I was at work earlier, I was checking on one of the dogs in the kennels and when I moved over to get a better look, i stood up a bit (kind of) and when I did i slamed my forehead into the guilletine door in the middle of the dog kennel that seperates the inside run from the outside run. So yea...it was NICE. I had blood dripping down my forehead as I ran to the bathroom passing a bunch of guests that must have been wondering what happened

I am the worlds biggest clutz!

Oh no, poor thing - both for the pain and the embarrassment factor

I assume you've cleaned it well and are putting lots of antiseptic on it!!!!!

Why is it that shelters put doors/things to cut yourself on in the dardest places?

OUCH!

I did that a few weeks ago on the cabinet in the kitchen

Thanks guys! I felt like the biggest clutz when it happened And then make matters more goofy- i ran through the lobby into the bathroom to clean up my forehead and all of the guests saw me running around bleeding I cleaned it up well when I got home. Now i just have to remember not to touch the cut though- i keep feeling like i have a pimple or something on my forehead (i forget it's a cut) and try to touch it because it feels weirdI don't want to put a bandaid on it as it's right at my hair line.

In my defense though- those guilletine style doors REALLY stink! They are constantly getting stuck/broken and the AC guys are constantly having to hammer them flat and try to fix them. We REALLY need some new doors The edges get sharp.

Once it closes up, poke a hole in a vitamin E capsule and massage a little of the oil into it morning and night -- it will help minimize the scarring.

Thanks for the tip! I'm hoping it doesn't scar as it's mostly just a surface wound (nothing too deep thankfully!) It really looks worse than it is, but it sure is aggervating! I will definitely try the vitamin E!

OW! You have so much going on, maybe a nap is a good idea (or to slow down a little.) Hope it heals quickly.
