@Ledboots sooooooo landscaping 2 wks ago. loaded up the back of a flatbed with branches and while sliding them off the back - totally, full pushing my upper body/arms with my legs - nailed my shin on the tow hitch sticking out of the back of the truck. Full on, foot-swinging, hit. I was in jeans and totally figured there's be a huge slice but no. bruised. It's been 2 wks the bruise is still swollen & warm to the touch. I've got about as much time needed to dedicate to this as this post, but will seek a dr apt if you say 2wks + still warm and swollen = bad.

*I can walk fine. running - meh, I feel it a little.

his right foot - first step, not the kick - is the speed I hit it.

like this, but without the ball.
I just saw this, slacking off my Useless Nurse duties again

How is it now?

ugh, I snagged the weird extra fingernail I have growing up out of my right index finger on my pocket again, and ripped it out.

I should go see a doctor and get whatever nail bed is growing this fucker removed for good.
Check the Guinness book of world records for most extra fingernails first, J!
You may already be a winner.

Think of the booger flicking excellence you'll miss out on. FLick the first one and they'll be like,"nah-nah ya missed me." Then you let loose with the second one and catch them with their mouth open. Or not.

DOuble the ass-scratching pleasure. :)

There is surprisingly little on the internet that's useful for permanently disabling a nail bed in a DIY sense.
If it's just the old nail isn't off yet and the new pone is pushing underneith, gluing them together with SUperGlue or nail hardener(polish) might be good idea until the old one is ready to really go. Or are they both actually growing?
That sucks.

Don't use your best jokes at lunchtime, Eddie. No one is here to read them.

Thx. Literally, the next day the heat almost disappeared. I've got a nice bump on my shin that feels like the bone has calcified over the area I smashed. 1" x 3" and 3-4 millimeters-ish thick swollen.

Had a couple ingrown toenail done as a teen. They just get in there with what amounts to a narrow scraper or razor and take the root off the end of the bone or whatever they're attached to.

Shirley you could DIY something like that. Like if you need to narrow the nail by 1/4", make a 1/4" wide tool.

I had one while on a family vacation from Nebraska to Oregon when I was 14. Had to go to a doctor no one knew but had an opening. He numbed the toe and took a scalpel and cut the toenail straight down the middle, parallel with the toe. Blood was pouring out into a metal bucket and the sound nearly made my mom pass out, and she had a strong stomach.

Then he, no shit, took a hot needle and burned holes into the remaining nail, using the holes like eyelets on a shoe and stitched it shut.

Gross AND awesome.
