Does this ever happen to u??

ok it seems like when im rushing around things happen that I just dont notice..lol like today, I was getting baby out of the car and putting her in her infant carrier (cause she is too big to use it in the car I just use it when I go places sometimes) to see my friend in the hospital cause she had her baby..I was rushing around and this always seems to be when this happens..lol I apparently sliced the knuckle on my right ring finger..like sliced a pretty good peice out...so I didnt even notice it! and were walkin into the hospital and were asking which room shes in when I go to fix my jacket I noticed theres blood on it and im like OMG I thought my daughter was bleeding, so im freaking out then see my hand..lol and theres like blood all over my finger because I was carrying the carrier with that hand so I was basically squeezing the blood out..but omg I didnt even feel any pain or notice I did it...how weird is that??

  • lol, that sort of thing happens to me all the time, I bump into something and don't really think too much about it, other than thinking, "oh, that hurt", then move on and forget about it, or I bang my hand on something or something like that.

    Then later I notice that I hurt myself a little more than I thought. My dh is always saying things like "where did you get that bruise on your leg, or cut on your hand", or whatever, and 9 times out of 10, I don't really remember, or, if I do, I'm surprised that it actually left a bruise or drew blood, or whatever.

  • You have Mommy Adrenaline which blocks out most pain when you are rushed, in a frenzy, and/or excited. :)
