I saw the fat inside my arm tonight

May 25, 2007 6:34pm CST
Today I sliced open my arm at work when taking out the rubbish. I had 7 stiches in the forearm and I saw all the fat orange stuff. YUCK! It wasn't so bad but I can't type too much cos I can feel it hurting when I move. Paracetomol and bed for me!

I was tkaing out the rubbish and have to throw it in a container that is about 5 feet high. the can poked out and cut my arm and it burst open. not much blood which means its deep. it wasnt too sore at the tiem but no wi have millions of bruising cos of the stitches and injections. I'm going look bloody scary with my big scar now.

Which arm was it, the one you write with or the one you don't. I started a university course with a broken arm, and had to learn to write with my left hand, the writing was awful. This was in the days before computers, and although I could type then, I didn't have a typewriter. Must have been quite a big cut to have 7 stitches in it, bet its going to be sore for some time. If you've got a microphone you could get a speech programme for it so you could dictate into your computer (if it can understand a 'Weegie' accent.)

Lol I can still type as it si in the inside bit. Like put your two arms against each other - it is that bit and it is nearer the joint than the wrist. Good job I have fleshy arms.

Oh no! get well soon, Claire. That does sound really nasty. I've had stitches but always during a surgical procedure so have never hd to see the exposed inside bits. I am cringing for you!

Oh that sounds horrid, this is a good time to just do a lot of reading - take a break from typing :) I messed up my shoulder a few weeks ago and typing one handed is no fun - I can't imagine how people do it all the time... Praying you feel better soon.

I can type but I can feel it. It's as though the muscle is a bit damaged but the woman done the prodding and said it is fine!

Ouch, I bet you were in some major pain but at least you got some medication to take. Take care and try not to type or lift too much. Hey, maybe you can get someone to baby you all weekend, lol, and do anything for you. That would be cool.
