  • I'm such a Clutz

    Ouchy, this morning I was getting ready for work. I used my chi flat iron to strighten my hair. after I was finished I turned it off and put it on the floor. I went to get my makeup out of my bag and walked back tothe mirror. Not paying attention I accidentaly slid my big toe into the hair straightener and it closed on my toe. I burnt my big toe... It hurts so bad! I cant wear boots I have to wear high heels. I wore my high heel boots and now my toe feels like it's throbbing and all I want to do is ice it. Only me would somehow find a way to burn my toe! It's kinda funny but it hurts. I'm such a clutz!!!!!

      As if my day couldnt get any worse. My boss asked me to take a drive to another bank branch to pick something up. On the way back I decided to stop my by my house and get a bandaid for my toe... I started to walk down my wooden stairs and fell down the stairs. I'm back at work my my finger is starting to swell and my back hurts so bad... I really messed something in my back. I hate today!!!!

              Diagnosed August 2001

              Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


              Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

              I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

                I swear I should be wrapped in bubble wrap so I never hurt myself. Ha ha I trip down the stairs in the bank and everyone laughs at me then checks to make sure I'm okay. I get soo embarresed.
                My mom used to call me the Clutz. I could trip over air! Stairs are my worst enemy... I trip up them and down them. lol I should walk slower and watch where I'm going. Nice huh??

                    Looks like today is not your day. What you need to do is go home and go back to bed and just start over. Who knows, it might actually be better than it already is!
                    Either way, hope you feel better.

                        &quot;The Office&quot;

                        This reminds me of an episode of "The Office". Michael decided to put a "foreman grill" at the foot of his bed and lie some strips of bacon on it before bed. The grill could be programmed to cook at a certain time, hence Michael could awake to the smell of sizzling bacon in the morning.

                        Needless to say, one morning he stepped on the grill.

                        Sorry about your boo-boo's.........and remember you can start your day over anytime you like. It is yours, after all.

                          Well, I'm sharing your enjoyment of the lovely weather here in NJ -- even my dog refused to go out this morning! I posted about it under "Pets Welcome."

                          I don't know, I think a lot of people would be capable of catching a toe in the hair straightener. One time when I was living in a college dorm, I was trying to iron on the floor of my room (OK, stupid, but I was about 17 at the time, LOL). I was also wearing shorts, and I somehow managed to iron my leg. I still have the scar from more than twenty years ago. It's one of my many "badges of honor" bearing testimony to the fact that, hey, at least I tried!

                          I am in bed with my now-dry dog next to me, and a bottle of painkillers on the nightstand, and my body is aching in sympathy with you. So, if I can feel your pain, maybe you can feel my comfort? Trying to send warm, cozy vibes your way!

                          Tout ira mieux demain -- Everything will be better tomorrow! You're owed a good day! And stay off those stairs!!!
                          Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
                          Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

                          Peace, Carolyn

                            Thanks girls... I just realized my right shoe is all skuffed up from falling down the stairs... I cant get it off! Arg haha I have to go home again on my lunch to change my shoes so I dont look like a total duffis. My shoe is black and it's got a huge white spot on the outside of my shoe so everyone can see it. LOL I should lay in my bed when I get home to see if I can start the day over.

                            thanks for all the love today...

                            Berkshire Road.. your story reminded me of when I first started dating my bf jamen. It was about 3 years ago. I was getting ready to go over his house. So I was straightening my hair when I wasnt paying attention and tired to get my side bangs straight when dontcha know I burned my forehead. Yup I had a big V right smack in the middle of my forehead. LOL I called Jamen and told him I couldnt come over, He said why so I told him. I got to his house and our friend anthony was with him. They both started laughing at me. NOt funny. Well it is now... I'm a total clutz in everything I do.
