I have to be at the job tomorrow. It's mandatory I'm there on the first day of a new job. Sucks!

Re: Wrist Suddenly Ballooned


i've also had the sharp pain & swelling like that.

wife made me go to the doc.

shot me with a huge dose of very potent antibiotic and made me stay on the couch for 3 days.

it was either the couch or hospital....
