What is it with me and drinking and getting hurt? I think it is normal to wake up with a bump or bruise after you drink heavily and wonder where it came from, or at least that was normal for me in my college days. But Memorial day 2011 I broke a beer pong table and I have a scar on my arm.
This past weekend I was out in New York City. After a long night of drinking I was stumbling back to my hotel room around 5am.
and my knee is a bit banged up.
but what I don't realize because I was way too hung over was that the fibers of my jeans and bits of street were in my wound. I throw a band aid on and head down to work. But my wound seeps liquid. The next day I have nasty puss oozing out...crap it is infected. I can handle the slight pain and discomfort, but I have a hard time actually cleaning it. I am left wondering, if I can't clean my own wound, how can I care for a child's issues? Perhaps motherhood isn't in my future.
