Ouch! I remember when I dislocated my shoulder in P.E with a stupid accident, it was about a week before the end of the school year. I felt so freaking embarrassed. I waited ages for the ambulance. And the freaking school nurse didn't know number of the emergency hot-line. >_>
Then I was taken to the hospital where I had never been before, although it wasn't far from the school itself. Thank God my parents came by to pick me up. :oops: I had to get dozens of x-rays made just so the doctors could be sure that there are were no broken bones. Then they gave me a tranquilizing shot on my bum. Then later they just pulled it back in.
Then I was patched up. They put bandages all over my body, my right arm was connected with my torso for TWO FREAKING WEEKS! They told me I couldn't wash for two weeks, but I used special damp napkins so clean my body from sweat as much as possible. I was basically like a pig baked in an oven for 14 days. It was so hot outside, talk about being shaded inside - it's just as hot.
I had to fake I had an arm for all that time. I kept the right sleeve in my pocket all the time, just to give people some resemblance of an arm. This one time, I was going home with a classmate of mine, we we're sitting quite near the driver. An old lady came in and asked me to make some room for her to sit - there was a little bit of extra room for one person. She noticed my sad condition and apologized and said sorry. I found it quite amusing and was on the edge of laughter.
Oh God, how I was relieved when I took off the bandages. It was the first time I had a normal shower after those long and hot two weeks. I could barely lift my arm above my gin since the muscles had died. A visit to the family doctor to get verification for my well being and that was basically it. Although, I think I had shifted my shoulder a bit out of place before the latest incident because the shoulder popped out amazingly easy. Oh, how I wanted to spit in the faces of those classmates who constantly kept saying that now it will dislocate more often since it has happened once already.
Wow, I wrote a novel. I didn't notice that at all.
