Ugh. I have burnt the crap out of my fingers by picking up a plate I'd just taken out of a hot oven. Stupidstupidstupid.

And I tell you this - cold water has messed me up, as rather than getting better, my hand is now convinced that ice cold is the only temperature it's safe at. I should have done the homeopathic way and put it in hot water, and convinced the burn it was ok to be hot, and not need to react. Instead I went the wimpy way because it hurt SO FUCKING MUCH but now it still does, hours later. Extra strength Nurofen not working... I'm scared to go to bed. And it's 12.45, I have to go to bed. My nerves feel damaged. Is it me or am I hurting myself a lot recently? Shutting my finger in the car door, dentist on Wednesday, now this?

There have been times in my life when I have hurt my hands so much. This is what I do- I kiss my hands all over and tell them I love them.
The injuries cease.

Ohhh, I like that. I'm kind of ashamed of my hands - they're fat little chubby baby hands, same as they were when I was a toddler, but with bitten fingernails and now the skin is no longer young, the veins starting to show more. They embarrass me.

But yes, your way is much better.
