I'm A Hazard To Myself

HELP...I'm scared my "accidents" may be starting to re-appear. This morning I was rushing around getting ready for work, trying to do several things while curling my hair. I pulled a long strand of hair, attached the curling iron and was getting ready to roll it when I had a "short circuit". For some unknown reason I reached my left hand over the top of the curling iron to grab more hair...the inside of my wrist hit the top of the curling iron and stuck to it for a few seconds. OMG...I burned the crap out of my arm!

I put the curling iron down, ran cold water over it and then thought, "WHAT WERE YOU DOING?" I have no answer...just a plain brain fart! I probably can blame it on the insomnia, by Friday I'm a zombie, 4-5 hrs. sleep a night takes its toll.

First my foot, which is still sore...I need to get it checked again, the bone is sticking up on the top of my foot. I think they might have missed the fracture, now this burn. I'm not ready to go through this again. I need a padded room with all electronics, doors, water etc. removed. Maybe then I'll be safe!

Wish me luck trying to make it through the rest of the weekend injury free.

Oh I do stuff like this all the time. My mind is always thinking about too many things and it equals me doing clumsly things.

Ouch! I just did that 2 days ago, on my flat iron! I've got some nice burns on my fingers to show for it! Be careful this weekend!!!

You sound like my mom and I. I'm a huge cluts. I've burned myself many times with the curling iron. As for my mom, get this, she burned her eyeball with one. OUCH, I know! Obviously she had to go to the ER but she's fine now.

Good luck the rest of the week!!!
Happy SWS!!

Oh my goodness! You DO need some sleep, girlfriend! I'm so sorry you are in pain. I hope you get those things resolved soon. I will say a prayer for you.

I hope you have an otherwise great weekend.

Sorry, but I had to laugh (as we always do in our sick family style)! Just know that we are truly sisters, and it must be in the genes. At least you aren't as bad as I am yet!
