Friday Fun Question: for the Moms in the Audience
I’ve read several blog posts about pain and labor pain recently, especially concerning individual differences and tolerance. As a late Friday topic of discussion, I have a question for the moms, especially those in healthcare or with a tendency to accidentally injure oneself – How might labor pain compare to hobbling around on a broken kneecap for six weeks because some yahoo in the ED missed it on the x-ray? Or, you know, to other excruciating things you may have experienced, if your hometown ED wasn’t as incompetent as mine? Discuss.
Other dumb accidents from your blogger (feel free to share your own):
-Falling out of a van and onto a sidewalk in front of the security office for the National Institutes of Health. In a skirt.
-Falling stiffly (like a felled tree) face-first into a hot tub. Which was occupied.
-Falling backwards off a porch, bouncing off a dogloo, falling some more, and landing butt-first on a water spigot.
-I’ve also fallen up stairs on several occasions. We won’t even talk about accidentally stapling my own finger.
