Well, bugger.

I was annoyed last night when work kept me from the gym, because missing Monday threatens to mung up my exercise schedule for the whole week.

Getting woken up at 4:21 this morning made getting a good workout today harder.

Now, I whacked my hand on the corner of a table hard enoguh that I can feel the bruise on the back of my hand in my palm, and my arm is throbbing from fingertips to elbow. I'm periodically running it under cold water for as long as I can stand, and I've taken advil, both to combat swelling. I can still move my hand, so I doubt it's broken, but making a fist is challenging. I don't think I should be doing any weightlifting with my right hand today. :(

I have a feeling this week is out to get me somehow...

ETA at 15:20: Okay, maybe it *is* broken. I'm going to drive home now and then call telehealth and see what they say.

ETAA at 16:54: At home now, and the pain seems to be receding. Even if it is broken, there's not much to be done for it.I'm going to wait a bit and then go on with my plans for the night. If it doesn't get better, I'll go see my GP tomorrow.

The Universe seems to like it's balance doesn't it?

Bastard.

To clarify, the Universe is the bastard, not you.

Bah! Just Monday I went to the foot doctor, because in October I stepped on my foot when it was asleep and there was a hideous painful pop, and Saturday it was hurting again. The foot doctor was like, "Dude, all the healing is done in 6 weeks, if you're having trouble now you'll be having trouble for the rest of your life." If I'd gone to the foot doctor then, maybe I could have had a foot immobilization device that gave me a better crack at complete healing instead of half-healing. But I was feeling stupid, so I acted stupid.

So, I'd say go to the hand doctor.

OUCH!

Wow. Ice. Anti-inflammatories. If it doesn't feel better soon-ish-ly, do go have it looked at.

I hope it feels better right quickly.
