Is anyone else feeling sorry for themselves?
I'm feeling very sorry for myself (as well as feeling stupid). I scalded my left hand last week and it's just starting to get better and now tonight I've burnt my right hand with steam Both burns are mainly on my index fingers so they're hard to avoid touching and moving I didn't realise tonights burn was going to be as bad as it is and didn't put it under cold water for long enough so I suppose it my own stupid fault that it hurts so much now


Are you feeling sorry for yourself tonight?

Ouch. Burns are horrible. I hope you heal fast!
Yea, I'll join your pity party. I can't go into details, but I'm feeling sorry for myself, too.

I always find that when I hurt myself once, I'm like an accident waiting to happen, especially with burns.
One summer I burned my arm on the oven, then I did it again and again- all on different days. It ended up making a large Z on my arm, so all summer I said I was marked by Zoro!

Ow, I am so sorry you are having such a trouble. Burns are one of the most painful things to deal with. Use a good antibiotic salve to keep the burn from getting infected and if it is large I would keep it wrapped for a couple days at least to keep it clean. Hope you feel better.

As for feeling sorry for myself. I am one of those kooky people who rarely feel sorry for themselves. Whenever something happens bad to me whether it is injury, sickness, financial, family, whatever I usually boohoo for about an hour then pick myself up and always realize someone somewhere has it worse than I do so I then just get on with my life. It has always helped me get through whatever bad is going on to know that whatever is going on with me is minimal compared to someone else I could help in some way.

Hope you get to feeling better real soon. To you

to everyone. It must be the weather--no, really. I was reading a book yesterday and one of the characters died and I CRIED! Not just a tear. Nope, one of those "I've got to the leave the room 'cause I'll never be able to explain it" cries. I hate crying.
Today's forecast: Intermittent sighs and occassional hair pulling
(our secretary didn't show up today and I have one attorney on vaction and the other at a labor department hearing--I'M STRESSED!!!! )
