it’s fucking lite fm all the way*

i just smashed my left pinky in the huge metal (how ironic) filing cabinet. it hurt like a motherfucker. so, i sat there with it between my knees, grimacing and thinking that i had a pretty high pain tolerance but that i might have to cry a little and then i looked down to see blood. glad to know that my first instinct to ward off pain is to press, anyway.

here i am at a midwives’ office, and there isn’t a whole lot of great medical items to help me. a speculum and a baby nose sucking thing isn’t a lot of help. but i found a bandaid after i pressed the shit out of it (my right hand actually started to hurt and i couldn’t figure out what was hurting after awhile) and held it above my head. if i had a butterfly bandage, i’d put it on there, but i think the pressure will do it fine. it’s clotted enough to heal itself, i think. i just wish we had some neosporin or something.

oh well. i’m going to go to a meeting in a little bit. i’ll do it when i get home.

did i mention my grandma died a year ago today?

*in case you didn’t catch the reference, it was SO not metal to fucking smash my finger.
