Falling Into Autumn
After having a recent birthday, I think I am getting younger not older. A few weeks ago I walked into the open desk drawer and now I have a three inch long scar to remind me of it, and this morning I took a really bad fall while working in the yard. What's up with me and getting new scars? I thought that was long behind me, I've got scars on my body from so many mishaps. I really didn't need this to happen today. Who does?
This photo, is not mine, I found it on the web, but it is how both of my knees look, a deep gash, though mine is more crescent shaped, and add a big lump on each knee. I also bruised and scraped my right arm and twisted both wrists. My face had a little scraping, not too much. I can't hold the camera to take a photo, plus I really don't want to be reminded of this once I've healed.
I broke my turtle when I fell, a pottery one, not a live one, and had to get my husband to finish the work I was doing. The irritating part is I'm allergic to most bandages and adhesive tapes so it's really hard to keep these cuts covered. I get welts and start bleeding where the bandage touches my skin. Last week I had a blood test and within two minutes of the adhesive tape being on my arm, there were welts all around it and I couldn't get the tape off soon enough. Latex free tapes make the welts as do the regular tapes.
Hoping to feel better tomorrow, going to put the ice back on now and see if the bleeding will stop. I really don't want to go for stitches if I can avoid it. Will let you know how this goes. Has anyone used the scar remover, "Mederma?" or something like it; I think I need it.
