broken-toe

I BROKE MY PINKY TOE MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL IT HURT LIKE A BITCH. I WAS WATCHING THE LEGO MOVIE AND WAS LIKE “HEY FOOD SOUNDS GOOD” SO I GOT UP AND HIT IT AGAINST THE FREAKING COFFEE TABLE THINGY. NO ONE BELIEVED ME THAT I BROKE IT BUT I HEARD AN AUDIBLE CRACK NOISE AND SO THE NEXT DAY I MADE MY MOTHER COME GET ME (I LEGIT COULDNT EVEN DRIVE LIKE SHOOTING ELECTRICITY WAS GOING THROUGH MY FOOT) 20 MINUTES INTO SCHOOL AND SHE BROUGHT ME TO THE “FOOT DOCTOR” AND THEY WERE LIKE “HEYYY YOUR TOE IS BROKEN OH AND BTW YOU ONLY HAVE TWO BONES IN YOUR PINK TOE??!!?!” AND I WAS LIKE WHHHAATTT? 


i like caps-lock. 

honestly the worst i’ve played through is maybe whiplash, broken fingers/toes and torn muscles, but i have had teammates who’ve played through concussions, torn ACLs, stress fractures, broken wrists/ankles, etc and like…. i play midget b girls hockey, far from nhl level hockey with nhl level stakes and we’re still like this…. this culture is literally so deeply ingrained in all players, at all levels. “sacrifice your body for the good of the team.” it’s not something i like to dwell on because i know i’ve contributed to this toxicity by encouraging teammates to play through injuries they definitely shouldn’t have, or not speaking up to team parents or coaches who encourage it, but i’m glad it’s being talked about. i’m ashamed that zaitsev and marner were allowed to play when the org knew about their injury/illness that could very well become life threatening by continuing to play through them.

Happy Birthday!! Nursey is such a clumsy piece of shit that eventually Dex has all of his personal info memorized to fill out paperwork for him if he has to go to the emergency room and he learned how to do easy stuff like set broken toes and do sutures at home. By the time they get married not only does he deal with the kids scraped knees and shit but neighbors will come by like "hey i cut my thumb chopping veggies just now can you do me a solid and I'll like mow ur lawn or smthn"

This is 100% true. As a first anniversary gift, Nursey gets Dex a first aid kit that looks like a mini toolbox. He keeps it forever.

stumpy update: doing good! he chewed off the rest of the broken toe, which is actually kind of good, so now there’s less chance of infection​. i liberally doused the stump in iodine and antibiotic cream, wrapped it up, gave him a shot of pen-g, and now it’s up to fate.

bonus: i’ve kept the e-collar that was given to me for my rat when he had tumour removal surgery for about seven or eight years out of nostalgia - today it comes in handy!

None all I want is thc to induce a micro nervy b that I know will only last a limited time so I can work thru some shit idc about pain I’m pretty sure I’ve been walking around on a broken toe for the better part of the last year
