Actually, the drugs they gave my in my IV the last time, made it a pleasurable experience.
Spelling edit,I am on beer 6.0 and can't see the red lines!

Just simple breaks! Fingers, minor arm breaks too.
Once while working alone, I fell 8' onto bricks. Broke 3-4 bones in my hand and cracked the upper arm at the elbow. I couldn't even crawl until I set the ones in my hand. It was a matter of necessity. Once all the fingers were pointed correctly and the pain dropped dramatically, I was able to move somewhat. I learned something that day about broken bones. Ouch!

BTW, it took about 2 hours before I was willing, and able to get back up there too. I had to felt the open area back in before going home. After soaking in a hot tub for awhile, all the bruising came to the fore! 3/4 of my body was black, blue, yellow, and maroon. I was a sight to see and a major conversation piece at WTR that weekend.

I'm not tough. I was in tears. I had an employee that refused to come out and tarp the roof. I wanted a ride in the ambulance. That option would have left a client's house wide open to the weather. Maybe for days if I was admitted. I had a choice to make and I was much more interested in my client's welfare. That was priority one. I made it somehow.

I'd had L-4 pop out a few times and been laid up for long periods. Compared to a back injury, which I was able to compare the pain to, a few broken fingers. etc. was a cakewalk.

I know one ex employee who would have a good ole butt whoopin coming when I got well, that is about as sorry as they come.

I admire your dedication to your clients, I would have done the same there one way or the other.

Psst Barb
We won't tell them what extreme and intense pain really is. You know, you felt it twice and I did it three times. A pain so severe that the accompanying snip snip to avoid ripping and tearing isnt even felt. You're screaming while the Dr stands there with a smug look on his face telling you "you can do this" and you find out too late that HE doesn't believe in drugs.
Good for you, now give the damn demerol. Wouldn't even give me a tylenol

That is one doctor who should have felt a little pain in return. I hate getting ticked off before my first cup of coffee of the day.

I know what you're saying (as much as I can!)
No "Demerol" for child-birth?!?
Huh?!?
"Smug" look on his face?
That's because he knows he's never going to have to go through
child-birth - just "deliver", children!
Wait a minute!!?
I thought the "Stork", delivered children!?!
Hmmm?
Maybe I was misinformed?!?

My last words to him was to pick up his check, and preferably when I wasn't there. He did and the wife lit into him! It almost came to blows. She wanted to kill him.

Man that is just shameful he fell out on you,if you did something like that in my trade no-one would work with you,we ALWAYS look out for each other because it is so dangerous.
