Bone or Wood? Which one is harder?
Yesterday (Sunday) I accidentally/on-purpose tripped/kicked/ran-into my bed… well, it’s complicated, not even I understand properly how it happened… But, long story short: I broke my toe.
It’s the fourth time I break a bone in my life. It’s always the same thing. It gets very numb and everyone around me says:
“You didn’t break anything, otherwise you’d be crying… Blah Blah Blah…”
A couple of hours later:
I went to St Vincent’s Hospital close to my apartment and was very well treated:
- X-Ray to confirm it was broken
- Tons of painkillers
- Keep foot elevated, above heart level
I broke the proximal phalanx on the right toe, also called hallux.
Left foot below is a normal one from the internet. The right one is mine.
Now I have to learn how to use crutches and work from home.
