My swollen finger has upgraded itself to a finger infection. This is particularly crappy for a few reasons:
- It’s my typing finger (yes, I type with my two index fingers and use my thumbs for the space bar — not only do I type at 70 wpm with 90% accuracy, I’m 60% more efficient at typing than you “whole-hand” typists); I currently have switched to the middle finger on my left hand to compensate
- It hurts like heck (which is draining, distracts my attention from the rest of my life, and Sarah bumped into it twice today, and let me tell ya — OUCH.)
- It had to happen on a long weekend.
I’m really hoping that the walk-in clinics are open tomorrow — antibiotics are MUCH needed at the moment. I put some extra-strength Polysporin on it, but that’s supposed to be preventative — i.e., it ain’t doin’ nothin’.
But at the very least, this incident made me think of a blog topic: getting your health right!
