Typing this with one hand…
I’ve burned two of my fingers clearing a jammed photocopier at work. It’s left a smallish blister on the tip of my index finger and a quite large blister on the tip of my middle finger. Painful. I had to hold them under the cold tap for three quarters of an hour. I came home from work early, on the 6.30 am bus instead of my usual 8.10 bus, because I couldn’t do anything constructive at work. I already had sores on my thumb and on the side of the index finger on that hand (dermatitis) and the burns put the hand out of action totally.

It’s my left, but I still need it. I can’t type properly one-handed, can’t do ctrl-alt-del which I need to do to be able to enter the system passwords, and I struggled dreadfully with signing off the International Money Transfers – they’re in 3 parts and the top and bottom parts get initialled, the middle part gets signed. Easy with two working hands; with one hand it’s a complicated juggling act.

So I went home early. In other circumstances that might have meant a couple of hours fic writing; today, forget it. Even a drabble would be too much hassle.

The hand isn’t painful now; at least as long as I don’t touch anything. Here’s hoping I manage to sleep okay today and that I’m able to type tomorrow.

Ouch - poor you. Hope it does heal quickly. Surely after writing so much about vampires and slayers it would be only fair for you to have absorbed some of that super quick healing ability.

Thank you!

It's much better now.

Oh dear how horrible. I'm sending you lots of healing vibes and remember - if you can't write, you can read instead! :)

Ouch! :hugs you:

I'm really sorry to hear this - it sounds even more painful than it is annoying. I hope it was all written up in the Accident Book.

Thank you!

Yes, it's in the Accident Book.

Finger burns are really painful... I hope healing kicks in soon.

Often the smaller injuries are far more painful and inconvenient than big things. Sending lots of healing vibes your way.

Ouch! Hope the burns heal quickly. Ice and good drugs, that's my suggestion.

Ouch. Poor you. *pet you* Don't worry about fics. Just get well soon! I'd cook something-comfort if you are not so far away...

Sounds like your company is lucky if you don't sue them ...
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 30th, 2006 07:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Suing them would be more trouble than it's worth.

Poor Speaker!

I hope you heal quickly and that you can get back to the things you love to do quickly (that would be writing - the work? Not so much).

Take care.
