While boiling my pump parts etc. (gotta boil everything with thrush...) I got overzealous and somehow dumped boiling water on myself... down one breast and down my abdomen. I kind of went into shock.. stood in my tub while the cold water was running and just sort of screamed. H didn't know what to do, he did that chuckly "oh sweety" thing he does when I do something stupid, and then realized I was in a lot of pain and brought in ice and such.. it stung to pour water over it.
So I have puffy red burns all over me, and I am in worlds of pain. I just took a percocet, I didn't know what else to do. Benzocaine didn't help. I can't really afford to go to the ER for pain meds, so this will have to work for me for tonight.
Nursing is awful. I scream and cry.. now not only is nursing painful but it hurts just to bear his weight on my torso. When he roots, I just start crying.
Pardon the "woe is me" moment, but seriously what next? Fourth degree tear, almost 2 weeks in the NICU, PPD, weeks of painful nursing, another 2 week stay in a hospital, thrush, and now this? I'm beginning to think I'm not cut out for motherhood.
You really need to get some treatment at the ER if you can. I know you said that $ is an issue, but...burns can be bad and you need proper healing!
