Wounds Galore


I don't know what is going on with me lately, but I seem to have a case of "accident prone" and I am not sure who I picked it up from.

Not only do I still have the bruise (although it is fading) and dent in my shin from soccer two Sundays ago, I have a new bruise on my right bicep from a collision with someone's elbow this last Sunday. I look like an abuse case.

I also managed to puncture my thumb on some kind of thorny object in my yard the other day. It didn't bleed but enough "poison" got in there that my thumb is tender. Needless to say, that little thorny thing is not in my yard anymore.....killed it yesterday with the clippers. That'll show it.

Yesterday while I was loading my truck up with the tons of fall flowers and plants I bought to replace all my dead summer stuff, I got stung by a yellow jacket on the back of my leg. I was able to treat it with ammonia (which seemed to work well) and today it just itches a bit when my shorts touch it.

Last night, while cleaning out wax from one of my many candle holders, I managed to slice my left hand a bit. It was a clean shallow cut so even though it bled a little bit, I just put a bandaid on it and it seems to be healing already....

I don't know what it is with me but if I keep going at this rate, I'll only be able to walk on one leg and use one arm to do anything with....ugh!!!

Ummm you treated it with ammonia? I hope you didn't put Ajax on that cut of yours. I usually treat wasp bites with baking soda (it neutralizes the poison).

I usually do that as well, but I did a search on the web and it said that ammonia can help as well, and since I had ammonia around, and didn't have to make the paste, I thought I would try it. It took the sting away right off and the little welt disappeared too.

Today, you can barely tell I got stung...

I don't know where you caught the clumsiness, but I've had it for years and can't seem to get rid of it! LOL
