I think I have sustained my first migraine-related injury. I had a really rough week last week with migraine pain and stress at my job, so by the time I got home Friday night, I was so not in the mood to make dinner. I ordered pizza from my favorite local place. They are notorious for taking a long delivery time, but the pizza is extra good so it's worth the wait.
While I'm waiting for the pizza, I warm up the oven with my pizza pan inside. Then once I get the pizza, I chuck it in the oven for fifteen minutes. The bottom gets crispy and the cheese on top gets all melty again.
This time, I pulled the pizza pan from the oven with a hot pad and opened my pizza box. I tried to lift the pizza onto the pan, but the pizza was very floppy. In my migraine fogged brain, I decided to grab the pizza pan and slide it under the pizza. Problem solved. The only thing is that I forgot the hot pad part and just picked up the pan with my bare hand.
Holy crap! Did I burn the shit out of my right hand!! There was lots of screaming, etc...I ended up burning every one of my finger tips, especially my thumb as well as the palm of my hand.
Now there are blisters everywhere, and of course, I'm right handed. It made for an very interesting weekend, but I'm getting better with typing only with my left hand. Today should be very interesting at work.
It just makes me wonder that if I wasn't in a migraine fog, would I have done the same thing? Has anyone else had a migraine-related injury like this?
