Only When I Laugh...
« on: September 28, 2006, 11:34:17 AM »
Due to an unfortunate combination of Vodka, Rain and concrete stairs, Im currently nursing a couple of bruised & cracked ribs   YOWCH..  and I keep hearing Fat Bastard singing the baby back rib song from Austin Powers...

This truly sucks, I walk like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, cant seem to take a deep breath, and I caughed a little while ago and just about cried.

On the brighter side, I just got two new movies from Netflix, thankfully theyre not comedies, the new issue of Gourmet and Instinct  and theres half of a bottle of Vino left from dinner last nite...
 If I could just score some Cherry Garcia  Ice cream  and some more narcotics Id be set. Fat Chance, Rush Limbaugh fucked it up for everybody, oh well they say misery loves Company So I plan to share the pain...I managed to get my boyfriend to cook dinner last night, which was yet another level of discomfort... the high point of the day will probablly be taking a shower, because if I start to smell myself Ill simply have a complete breakdown....
Ugh,, Im miserable.

Hi Lwood,

You have my sympathy. I hit the deck one time with a similar set of ingredients - we used to call that doing a starfish impression. I had cracked and bruised ribs as well and it seems like people instinctively know and want to tell you jokes. (bastards!) I was working on a fishing boat at the time and I got no sympathy whatsoever from my skipper and had to continue working (we were working away from home out of a port in Wales at the time) so take heart, it could be worse. If you have anything resembling a corset, wearing it might make you a bit more comfortable. And keep moving and stretching as much as you can - believe it or not, it does help make it heal quicker.

Aw, poor Lwood. Hope you feel better soon!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

I have an entire ROOMFUL of Vicodin upstairs that's looking for a home.   Pity that you live so far away. 

How 'bout I take a couple in sympathy for you tonight?  I know it'll make me feel better.  :P

In solidarity,
(who knows firsthand that Naprosyn works much better than Motrin for such injuries)

   I feel for ya man. I've done the cracked rob thing twice, and it never gets any funnier. First time was when my motorcycle fell out from under me at about 30mph. Second time was when I was trying to push an old '57 Chevy with flat tires by myself. I actually pushed it into place, but as I was finishing, the was a loud snapping noise and a lot of pain. I'd never have guessed that you could pop one that way.
