    No wonder pain doesn't bother you as much as like, everyone else on the planet.

    You've had more shit happen to you than anyone else I've ever interacted with. lol.

    I bet smashing your thumb with a hammer is little more than a tickle to you.


    I cut my finger, and I damn near faint.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. ~ Garcia

      I was shingling a roof and shot myself in the wrist with an inch and a quarter roofing nail all the way to the head of the nail. My reaction was to immediately grab the nail and pull it out, blood spurted out in pulses and my son who witnessed the whole thing got queasy. I had him take his tee shirt off and I wrapped it up with the shirt and finished the roof, took about 2 more hours. I went to the doctor afterwards and he bitched me out for pulling the nail out.  My finger tips in my thumb and first two fingers tingled for a few months after that but eventually healed. My still boy tells that story to all his buddies.
