Infirmary Thread #17: Pass the Bandages

Even wilder and wackier than pre-crash Miscellaneous, the survivors talk about the weather, puppies, work, and coffee.

Infirmary Thread #17: Pass the Bandages

The finger is a bit better this morning, though still sore at times. As deep as the cut was it will probably be a while before it heals totally.

Yeah, and setting up at the Faire won't be helping.

It is healing up though it looks like I'll have a scar.

That's good. Women love scars.

I certainly have plenty of scars. At last count... 7 total: on my knee, my stomach, two on my arms, and three on my head.

I'd be like "Hey, baby! Want to see my finger?" :sly:

And people wonder why I'm single....

:lol: Just be ostentatious about it. Show it off when you smooth your hair and scratch your nose. :cooldude:

I've got a few scars here and there. My best one is right next to my eye where I got hit with a flying rusty tin can cover back in the 60s. I cried like a baby, which was probably not terribly attractive to the girls who were present. :lol:

I think I cried for 4 of my 7 injury producing scars. The chicks definitely do not dig it. :lol:

Oh, I forgot to mention -- I finally, finally got around to getting my shingles vaccine shot. I've never had side-effect from a vaccine before, and I've had many flu shots over the years, as well as vaccines for typhoid and hep A.

But the shingles shot... wow... I've been wiped out the last 2 days. Today I'm slowly getting my energy back. Fatigue is listed as a side effect and I got it good.

By the way, you DON'T want to get shingles -- it's terrible and dangerous, so if you're over 50, please get it.

I have several small scars. I have had 25 moles removed, 1 melanoma scar on my back, one Brutus scar on my right arm, scars on both knees from the fall I had 3 years ago, and one scar over my right eye from the sled riding accident.

I want the shingles vaccine, but I have to wait a little over 3 years to get it. I know several people who were in their 40's when they had the shingles. One had it twice. :(

I really need to catch up with my scarring. I now feel so inadequate in the scar department.

That's why I have to plan when I get it. I suffer from fatigue as it is, so the Shingles vaccine will probably put me in a coma for a week.

Yeah, the FDA recommendation is 50 for Shingrix and 60 for Zostavax, but I have no idea what their logic is-- there's no age limit on getting Shingles.

I've heard that trying to catch roadrunners can lead to some scarring. :lol:

^Unfortunately, they don't need to be caught. The parents can't seem to get the current 3 off the nest. :lol:

I think not being klutzy is a very good attribute, Lupy :lol:

Cayla, I didn't know you once had melanoma. That can be deadly. Glad you've recovered.

If you get the shot on a Friday, it may ruin your weekend. You probably have 6 years worth of sick-time saved up, so maybe get the shot on a Monday so you can call in sick for a couple of days if you need to.

But I really recommend that all of you get vaccinated for shingles. It's a horrible illness to get, sometimes even fatal.

One of my brother-in-laws had it on his face and in his eye. He had to go to an ophthalmologist twice per week for 3 months.

He is fine, but he does have some numbness on his face.

That's not too bad, I guess. I still have some numbness from my surgery that I had as a teenager.

My problem is dumbness not numbness.
