Its really one thing after another with me. 😅
Thursday at work I injured myself…spilled hot tea on my hand/arm and burnt the hell outta it. 🥺
At first I didn’t think much of it. It hurt like hell, but I’ve burnt myself before and I figured it was fine. I went and put some aloe junk we had there. I soon noticed some skin peeling. And this one guy there commented that it was a bad burn and needed to be wrapped or something so it wouldn’t get infected. I showed the manager and she told me to go home and have my parents take me to the ER. The guy that had looked at the burn earlier drove me home which was super nice. 🙂 I called my parents on the way so they’d unlock the door (this was like almost 5:30 am) 🤪
When I came in I was bawling. It hurt so bad. I never had anything hurt so bad. 😭 We went to an ER. They had me run cold water on it, then they put some liquid stuff on it to numb it, they cut open some of the blisters, put something like Neospoin on it, and wrapped it.
Had to make an appointment to go to another hospital to get it looked at at a burn center. Later the one manger at work called to check on me, as did the owner.
I went to the burn center today. They unwrapped it and looked it over. Its so ugly. Some raw patches of skin, and more blisters. But they said its healing pretty good. They showed me how to clean it, put some cream on it, and dress it. Supposed to do it twice a day. That part hurts a bit. I still hurt just no where near as bad as when I first did it. I gotta go back again on Tuesday.
I’m out of work till at least Wednesday. And work is going to be covering the doctor bills. Honestly I feel funny about that. My mom and sister said I shouldn’t since it happened at work. But, it wasn’t anyones fault. What happened was the filter where you put the tea bag, after brewing some unsweet tea, I went to dump the tea bag and the filter thing didn’t drain all the hot water like it should and it dumped all over my hand. So yeah, no ones fault. Just an unfortunate accident. I just feel weird about it…cause I’m not like looking to get anything from this. Just trying to do what I’m supposed to do. And no cause any trouble or stuff like that. 🥺 Just feel funny about it. *shrugs*
But overall I’m okay. Most of the burn was more on my wrist and arm. The top of my hand did get burnt, but the arm took most of it. At least I can use the hand part. Which means I can type. 😆 Still trying to take it easy on it, and not using it more then I have too since its very sore yet. Mostly where the raw skin is. But as I said overall I’m okay. 🙂
