Phew! My Thumb is Recovering: Help Soon For Kitchen Klutzes Like Me!

Yeah! I survived the horrible pain after nearly lopping off the top of my thumb, racing to the hospital, and getting five stitches. And I’ve finally emerged from the cloud that seems to have hung over me since I began taking Pergoset! (Never again will I take that! It may have helped me get through the injury the first three days, but it gave me a whole new set of problems, from dizziness, to the worst brain fog and muddied thoughts, to headaches, to a feeling of general awfulness!)

Anyhow, my thumb, thank goodness, is recovering, and I’m on the computer again and back to blogging. Hurrah! How weird to be away almost totally from my keyboard for several days! So, while my thumb still hurts some, I’ve now switched to natural painkillers like Arnica Montana and White Willow Bark.

The M.D. at the hospital reexamined it, and it’s looking good. I’m even dressing my own wound now. Thanks to those of you who wished me a speedy recovery.

Oh, you may find it amusing that I’ve decided to put my near thumb-loss catastrophe to put use. I’m now writing an article on "How Not to Injure Yourself in the Kitchen" to help other kitchen klutzes like me! LOL! Aleady, a couple of chefs shared their tips. Just waiting for a few more pearls of wisdom. I’ll post the piece here soon.

By the way, you better believe I’m being super careful around knives now. And, yes, as my cousin asked me over the phone, I’m still very much into eating sweet potatoes — I just have to ever-so-carefully cut them when I decide to make sweet potato fries.

Does this sound like you? "I blew my diet!" you wail... Enough already! Are you fed up with your Crazy Cravings for cookies, chips or other "treats" chasing you and then pouncing on you like a ravenous lion? I'm here to help you Claim Calm Control, shed those annoying pounds, and Rebound After Relapse™. ...Why listen to me? Because I've been where you are. After my mother angrily, abusively died, I blew my diet big time -- I ate tons of carbage, gained 21 pounds, and was trapped in Weight-Gain Shame. But I also became intrigued... okay, obsessed! Why do people blow their diets? While slimming down again, I exhaustively researched the subject. Now I'm back with FEPPP™ (fast, easy, proven, powerful, portable) tools to help you get the body you seek. I'm author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House). My next book is I blew my diet! Now what? Join me on my Gab with the Gurus Podcast, which will have new episodes starting in April.
