I dislocated my pinky finger today in my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. I was fighting my buddy Chris, who's a beast, but I'm a better grappler so far, heh heh. Anyways, it hurt, but it wasn't so bad (it actually kills right now though). Good thing, it's on my bowing hand for cello, so no biggie, and I don't use it when doing clinical work, phew. The crazy part about it though was right afterwards, I felt ok, but then all of a sudden, I felt really sick, felt like puking, and then I got really light headed, and from what they tell me, I turned ghost white. Chris massaged my temples, it was nice. :) This lasted about 10 minutes, and then I recouped and was fine. Physiology I tell you, all linear and sh-t. So again, I ask you, was I too invested in my perception, intellectually and emotionally? Jokes!

You'll never be able to hold a teacup properly ever again.

"right away" ...after finding a digital camera and snapping a shot =P.

Actually, this is not my finger, this is the closest thing I could find on the net that looked like my finger.

My finger was more dangly, and to be more specific, I popped it in an instant after visually perceiving that my finger was off at a 90 degree angle. And literally a moment later, it popped out again b/c I didn't do the job properly, so I hugged it again to get it into place.

Was fine after that.

Interesting thing today, I am having flashbacks of the event, and it isn't causing pain per se, but it makes me feel uncomfortable.

I wouldn't want to imagine the experience of real and serious trauma, egad.

When I broke my wrist and pelvis simultaneously in a snowboard crash, I was given Demoral (sp?). I would wake from a very convincing opiate like dream reliving the crash(with belief) over and over. Often with a jerk that would aggravate the injuries and add to the realism of the dream.
