Post by bobman » Thu Jul 12, 2007 8:52 pm

last thursday i tripped on a carpet gripper in the union office doorway at work, wot made it worse was my in growin toe nail, when it happened i had a lot of pain in my foot durin the day, when i got home i took my shoe of and my sock was soaked in blood, went to the docs the next day and he said my nail had split the skin and i had infection in my toe and foot

anyway doc gave me some cream for it and some antibiotics and told me to have time of till monday (9th july) then i went back t the docs on monday and he said stay of work for another week to let antibiotics work

For some reason when I'm ever off work for anything other than holidays,like you Bob it does my head in...only ever been off work once in many many years after having an op to repair cruceate damage to my knee a couple of years ago.I was only off 7 weeks and within 2 I was climbing the walls so much I tried to drive my car only to discover I couldnt exert enough force on the brake pedal to stop the damned thing :shock: :shock: just as well it was 7am on a Saturday morning and no traffic around :lol: :lol: :lol: didnt touch the car for another 4 weeks after that and was very wary about it even then....Ah well live and learn I guess
