    Injuries

    Right,alot of us on here work in workshops and are also in to motorsport and will be victim of some kinda injury at some point.... or some of us will probably be just plain stupid,like me!
    So to make abit of interesting reading,i'll start...i am currently sat on my ass for the best part of about 6-8 weeks,maybe longer,with a snapped heel bone in the right foot so my summer is wasted and can no longer walk and skiing is out of the question!!!..I'm not Happy!!!Funny thing is,i did this trying to break firewood over a step,and yes,i know i should've used an axe!
    I was unfortunate enough to suffer chickenpox for 2weeks prior to this aswell....so lets see who else has been unlucky!

    I feel your pain Gaz!! I was suffering from Bronchitis when this happened (Tib/Fib break) but apparently from all the antibiotics it cleaned me out.

    Crutches just plain suck. You would think with all the modern inventions we would have something better then a few centuries old. Currently screwing furniture wheel pad to bar stool so I can get something done in the shop. Needs a brake tho.

    Bags and backpacks help move things around but try filling up that coffee cup and making it back to the sofa!! Burned leg, fingers and dog. No way can this last 8 weeks. Daytime TV just blows!! Soliciters can't f#cking read two signs and a paper taped to the front door that says go away. Need SHOdude to make me a sign that goes in the yard about criminally insain/shoots randomly or something. The joys of taking a nice pee while standing are long gone, more lead time goes into this or you piss yourself.

    This sucks!!
