  •  I dislocated two fingers (8+ / 0-)

    taking out the trash last month. (Not trying to one-up you; just noting the same sort of thing happened to me.)

    I was horrified looking at them hanging there, so I just grabbed them and jammed them back into place, because my simultaneous thoughts were: OMG this hurts like hell, but no way can I afford for them to be broken. (I've been uninsured since I lost my job in 2007.)

    Luckily for me too, painful and no harm done. Just black and blue swollen fingers for a few days. And they still hurt from time to time because I obviously didn't put them back correctly.

    Yes, health care in America. We are soooo lucky to live in this country.
