Driving pains

It’s Tuesday, lovely and sunny, so why am I posting under sad?

Well last week, actually 2.15pm, last Tuesday (give or take a few minutes) I injured my hand.

Nothing to major. The wind was terrible last Tuesday. I was aware of this when I got to depot, so I was holding on to the van door strongly when I opened it. Guess not strong enough, as the wind ripped it out of my hand, giving my hand a good yank at the same time.

Fifteen minutes latter it still hurt, so I filled out all the work place injury forms as procedure. After all if I came back with a sore wrist the next day and said I hurt myself at work yesterday, nobody will believe you, so just in case, always follow procedure, report and fill out injury forms when it happens.

Well it wasn’t as minor as I was hoping. Next two days hurt all the time. By Friday it was only hurting when in use and for a while afterwards. Naturally driving means it was in use a lot.

Pretty much did nothing with my wrist during the weekend, so come Monday when it still hurt after 30 minutes of driving, decided, six days now, not gone. See a doc.

Well I saw my doctor this afternoon. Pretty much what I expected, painkillers and anti-inflammatories for a couple of weeks.

Better safe than sorry.

Don’t worry about me, doesn’t hurt much, guess I just like to feel sorry for myself every now and then.

It’ll be gone in a few weeks.
