did you fall thru floor joists?

ahh man, that's painful.
just breathing, hurts.
even sex sucks.

when i built our home,
i started out by falling thru the floor joists
while gabbing on the cell phone.

i never got x-rays but i f*#ked myself up.

i gobbled anti-pains and kept it up,
i had to.

my wife was pregnant and we were essentially homeless
and she wanted a home birth so i kept swinging the hammer
as that growing belly chased me down my dream.

about 4 months in, the pain was mostly gone.
take care juan

whoo 8 of them eh? That's a lot. I cracked 2 last month, hitting a tree skiing.

What everyone else said. Coughing, sneezing, you'll feel like your lungs have a hole in them. But you'll need to carefully get that crap up and out or you'll get pneumonia.

They're all interconnected so a stress in an uninjured place will hurt the injured place.

I had to sleep on my back. Sleep on my side, and I felt like I was being peeled from inside. I didn't go crazy on the Advils, but 4 of them and I felt great. Got down to 3 2 and none.

Good news is, only 6 weeks. Three weeks and I could run slowly. The running seemed to help, otherwise other parts of your body start to cramp up.

Are you gonna tell us how you managed to break 8 ribs?

I've had 3 at a time (+ collarbone, scapula and punctured lung) so I sympathize.

ok, just try not to laugh too much in the next few weeks/months

take care

P.S. - Not drinking is not a negative thing... it's just not intoxicating
