Pea-brain arrived home about 40 minutes ago, knocked upon MY door to inform me of the entire events of his latest episode and what he can and cannot do for at least 10 to 14 days, not that I care in the least btw.
However, by STRICT Doctor's Orders he MUST refrain from any Heavy Lifting, Sexual Activity, including self-gratification activities, soak in a cold bath, preferably a mix of ice and cold water, twice every day without fail, apply an ointment to the damage body part every 6 hours and report back to A&E in 3 days time for further assessment.
Again I most vehemently REFUSED to see the injured body part but had to listen to his description of it, i.e.still extremely swollen, badly bruised, very, very painful, turning from a deep red colour to a darker red-brown-blackish colour, it is very difficult to walk and painful to touch and he does not think that he should taking the analgesic tablets and anti-inflammatory medications because using them might go against the teachings of Jesus.
I did offer a little of my advice gained from a slightly similar 'accident' back in mid 20's when the towing hitch of a trailer that I was doing some welding on rolled forwards and got me in the family jewels, my advice was, Bugger Jesus, take the medicines because the pain will NOT go away by itself.

He obviously has some very strong feelings for you! πŸ˜‚ Your disdain and coolness just turn him on more. πŸ§ŠπŸ˜‚ Any sign of sympathy or understanding just gives him hope! Kind heartedness is just in your nature, and he has no concept of how that works, because the devout don’t do anything without thinking it will be rewarded by their god somehow. But we love the stories, so keep up the good work! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Shit, thanks for screwing up my Monday and the rest of my life with that 'pearl' of wisdom.
But I still stick by my ideas that he seek only a sympathetic ear, which he will NEVER get from me btw, as well as someone to be at his beck and call, which he can also go whistle for.


We need someone with intimate knowledge of word for the day to apply an anodyne salve.

Quite possibly those would affected as well imo.


I think god has forsaken him myself.


If someone in pain refuses to take analgesics then I have no sympathy for that person .


Or he could just damn well suffer after being so bloody stupid.


Some people have to live and learn the hard way.

The problem arises when they refuse to learn from their mistakes. Such refusal seems to be a forte of Evangeloon.

He lives but imo, never LEARNS.


He is the author of his own misfortune. I wonder why I have exactly zero sympathy for him.

I think you explained it. What is there to wonder about? Do you believe you should always have some level of sympathy? At least hypothetically?

@racocn8 There are times when I wish there was a sarcasm font. I would have used it in that final sentence.

@racocn8 Well as nurses we are taught and trained to be sympathetic, caring, kind and good hearted, so it seems that the training has become so in-grained that there are times when it does become quite difficult to separate the nurse from the person.
