Why is it when you have a small injury that one natured part of your body continues to get injured? I mean the rest of my body was and is available for a wee booboo, but nope of course not. The same already injured sport keeps getting attacked.
You’d almost think that I dislike this finger or something. You see it started with a small burn on m finger, maybe the size of a quarter. I tended to the burn after doing the requisite dance of pain…no matter how many times I do this I still have yet to master the dance.
Since burning my finger, I have banged the burned area, scraped another part of the finger and managed to get a paper cut right near the burn. And all of this while trying to take extra care with this finger. Surely a burn was enough, but of course not.
And of course this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. A few months ago I dropped a can on the side of my ankle. Yep you guessed it, that ankle got attacked by shopping carts, canes and even the car door. It seems the more care I take with an injured part the more I am likely to continue to injure it. Perhaps I should just not care about any part at all. Maybe then all of me would be safe!
