So yesterday at work I did the smart thing and cut towards myself with a box cutter and managed to give myself a nice gash. It’s in my index finger and it went in pretty deep. You know those times you cut yourself and you look at the cut and it’s so deep yet you still deny it’s going to bleed, then the blood starts gushing? Yeah.
Anyway, as I sit here and finish up a paper for class, I got to thinking about tetanus. Can’t remember the last time I had a shot in a 5 year period. Takes about 7-20 days to notice any faint signs of infection (fever, headache, basically every symptom for every other damn virus or condition). I used to think it was just for if you received a puncture wound from something contaminated with rust but apparently it’s if anything foreign creates a deep wound.
Tetanus shot or ride it out?
