This is why I have a HUGE bruise on my hip

2006-09-22: This work chair leg snapped off as I was leaning to my pod mate to listen in. The chair pitched over, and my hip/leg cracked against a hard plastic armrest, causing a HUGE lumped bruise the size of a grapefruit and darker than oncoming storm clouds on my hip and thigh. The pain was so excruciating, I had to go home, and I lost almost all feeling on my left side due to (I think) swelling against the ciadic (sp?) nerve in my leg.

I am in a SHITLOAD of pain right now. The swelling has stopped, and I can feel MOST of my left side now, except some of my toes, and the area closest to my bruise is black and yellow, swollen, and sore/numb. I think I'll be okay, but I had to go home from work early. I am more embarrassed than hurt, but it's hard to balance when your leg is numbish. I also split my wrist at the skin level... like some small crack that hurts like a papercut.

Told you September sucked.
