Not a Good Year For Nails

It's no secret that I am accident prone. We've had that discussion in several previous blogs. But my "accidents" are starting to scar me for life. Several months ago, I dropped a container of ice cream on my toe and the bottom section of the nail turned black and blue. My biggest concern at the time was that I would permanently have a black and blue spot in that area that cannot be easily covered up with toe nail polish. OHHHH I should only be so lucky. A few weeks ago, that section of the nail started coming off. so now there is this big crevasse in my toe nail between where the remainder of the nail actually is and where the nail SHOULD start. I'm not even submitting a picture because it's gross. I'm now afraid I may never have a toe nail ever again. I can only pray the situation will resolve itself before sandal weather 2007.

But that's not it. Last Saturday when I was taking a shower, I managed to shave off part of my fingernail (interestingly enough, it is the same fingernail in relation to my thumb as my damaged toenail to my big toe...i.e., second finger/toe on the right hand/foot). I had to cut the nail off to the quick because there was a hole in the nail. But now I still have to keep it cut off short because if I let it grow out any, there is a "claw" on that finger (again, no picture...not because it's gross, I just can't seem to take the picture with my left hand).

I'm some how thinking an investment in electrolysis might be my best bet because I am NOT good with the razor (this isn't my first major mishap).

I saw the nail. It looked really painful. Still trying to figure out how you cut it off with a razor.

I'm really not sure. Overly zealous with the razor I guess.
