15: PAIN

Hacky Sack Injury

Back in the summer of 2002 a large group of the Amigos made our annual trek up north to Oregon to enjoy the Summer Trip Part IV. The Summer Trip itself could be a topic full of stories, but this particular story fits this category PERFECTLY. There had been other mishaps for various folks on...

Panic on the streets of Redding.

I’ve been to the ER for a variety of reasons. Half of them are legit, the other half are directly related to blowing things out of proportion. I have a few different episodes of trips to the ER I’d like to share, which were unnecessary. 1) HE’S HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING. One night, actually one of...

Sleepwalking ISN’T Beautiful

I know most everyone has sleepwalked before. Usually it is harmless, or sometimes funny or embarrassing, but on occasion, it can be painful. I had such an experience back in 1995. It was New Years of 1996. A handful of us were gathering at Guillermo’s place. He was living at “Muffy’s” (maybe someday we will...

Pour some 40 on the curb for my fingers.

One of possibly the most painful wounds I ever obtained was purely by my own stupidity. I debated whether this event warranted discussion in a future drunken debauchery topic, or here. After much debate, I can’t really decide. It’s just as important to either topic. Due to the fact I have scars because of it,...

Plaster-man

IV Madness

One of my first real experiences of pain came about during a crazy night in the ER. For some odd reason, when I was in 1st grade I was constantly ill. I missed at least 25 days of school that year. It didn’t matter what it was, asthma, flu, and migraine, whatever… I was constantly...

All Sewn Up

The first injuries I remember all involved stitches. When I was young I wasn’t very adventurous. Part of the reason was my mother’s fault. She was and is and absolute pessimist. She always assumes the worst in situations. As a result I developed a healthy fear of most everything that could hurt you. While some...

TOPIC: Pain

New Topic: PAIN… Here it comes again. We’ve all been hurt. This is the time and the place to discuss it. I want stories of odd trips to the ER, stitches, surgeries, painful doctor visits, etc. If you’ve ever been injured, and you remember it, it deserves a story. Include pictures if possible. Go!
