this is miserable roy, checking in at 3am. just thought i'd like to share my pain with you (arrrgggghhh).

about 6 hours ago, i dropped a poster frame on my left big toe. it caused an immense amount of pain, that i hoped would pass. (i also re-enacted that family guy scene with peter going "ahhhh" for a couple minutes)

unfortunately, this seems to be the opposite of what is actually happening - the pain has actually been getting worse, to the point where i can no longer fall asleep. i'm convinced this pain is in my head, cause there's no reason my toe should be feeling worse - i have not been walking on it, and have been very careful not to touch anything with it. mind over body ... come on! kick in, advil! block those pain signals!

argh. i remember the last time i was up all night cause of my body - it was in high school, after i downed too much medicine, and my body was dry heaving it up all night. oops. my threshold for pain must be lower than a five year olds or something. pain cause of something on a dropped toe? man... how embarrassing.

hopefully this pain passes in the next hour or two ... or i'm gonna have to skip work - all cause of a stupid toe. lame!

Currently feeling: PAINED

Same thought: if this is so painful you can't sleep, maybe you broke it. You shouldn't feel "embarrassed" by pain but rather watchful.

uhm, yeah...reading that my first thought was maybe you broke your toe. plus you're not online so i'm a little nervous. big toes are kind of important.

You know, if it hurts that bad, it may be worth taking a trip to the ER to make sure you didn't break anything...
