yesterday i was lurking around the woods stoned and drinkin on a pocket bottle of captains when i tripped over my walking stick. i tried to catch myself by putting my left hand out to slow my inevitable descent. that was when i realized i was under a tree the branches of which were covered in thorns. well, as i landed i felt something penetrate my palm in two places. one thorn about an inch and a half long stuck almost through my palm, where my thumb meets the rest of my hand. another thorn stuck into the other side of my thumb and also exited; i'm not worried so much about that because it tore out sideways. the other hole is pretty much closed up and a little swollen, and the only time its pain free is when its hot. i washed it out with rubbing alcohol right after it happened, then put some antibiotic ointment on it, too. once i got home last night i soaked my hand in epsom salt/hot water. but i had to skip work today because my hand is literally useless. i can't move it without intense muscle pain, and where i dig worms in mud flats, it was just something i couldn't do today. so my question to you is this blades - what can i do to make the pain go away and regain use of my left hand? this is an important matter because as it is, i cannot roll joints.
