Annoyingly: the only blood I can't stand is my own, boyfriend hates all blood and can't hurt me and I don't trust anyone else with piercing my skin but my elder sister, who's over an hour away. I'll let it rest. It hasn't infected and it's small enough to not be an issue. It'll either dry out or pop on its own.

I've always wanted to ask... How does it feel being a lady who can't stand blood. I'm not being rude or funny but is it horrible for you around that certain time of the month? Also that sucks, Well if it starts swelling or pusing up then I recommend seeing a doctor. Infections suck.
I don't remember the last time I got a blood blister. A pair of boots randomly gave my heels blisters. Like hell if I ever wear them again, because fuck blisters. I don't even care if they're the coolest boots ever. The blisters were that bad.
I got heel blisters from DMs. I wore them until my feet grew calluses on the heels. Love DMs too much.
I've somehow managed to be so reckless as to get the first two blood-blisters of my LIFE in the past few months. Then again, I had to be stupidly careful as a kid to avoid bleeding too much and needing iron pills, whereas now I clot normally... So I guess I should be grateful I didn't get any when I was littler...
Mine are actually knock-off DMs from Wal-Mart. but they're a size too small now (they fit a few years ago when I bought them ) and I'm normally okay with wearing 9's when it comes to my converse and other shoes, so I figured I'd be okay. Nope. Biggest blisters I've ever had. I HAD to deflate them in order to wear normal shoes because it was risen a good half of an inch from my heel. I didn't want it to break while I was working and then have the skin rub off and leave it open.
Oh, at least they weren't blood blisters under your fingernails! THOSE suck. And are scary to look at.
lol It's from a weird idea my boyfriend and I had: A hired-assassin service that runs a torture dungeon behind a teashop. All with a sorta "Victorian + 1950s vintage-feel", so old sign with LOTS of random text, posters and ads in the windows, cluttered shelves, lace tablecloths, torture equipment from ancient Greek right up to modern-day, either exposed on the cafe walls or kept round the back... "JP & Alice's Torture and Tea." I even did a sign for it and some sketches of what it'd look like. I should colour and upload them...
Can't disagree with that one, to be honest. Live At The Apollo: "Wait, all our comedians are White men this week! Quick, bring out that sorta-funny-to-kids-and-retarded-people Black woman!" Me: "Noooooooo! Not HER! "
And nobody is going to convince me that Joe Brand is REALLY a woman. *twitch*
I know. I haven't had them IN MY LIFE because I was so careful about cuts. But now my clotting speed is better I'm gradually becoming more and more reckless, barefoot walking/running, messing with tools when tired, using really sharp knives. So I don't get ill any more, but I walk around everywhere looking like I suffer domestic abuse.
Fuck. I've had burns on my dominant hand before, but usually confined to my thumb (the heat magnet). The worst part is when you're going to get into the shower. And you instinctively test the "warm" water with your burnt hand... I'm sorry you had to go through that, dude.
The worst part was I couldn't work in clay. It was back when I was still at the college doing art stuff. Sure, the cold clay felt wonderful. But all the bacteria in it. And holding things felt like I was wearing gloves. Not a good thing when your trying to hold something super delicate.
