  • I did something obscenely stupid several years ago and ended up with a cut that went across my left index, ring, and pinky fingertips. I was ripped and horrified simultaneously -- that's one of my typing hands! I refused stitches -- I couldn't imagine the scarring that would result from that -- and bandaged them as tightly as possible. My index finger's scar is obvious, and points to the faint scar on my ring finger, which points to the extremely faint scar on my pinky. (Just as you'd expect, the depth decreased with time because I was recoiling from hurting myself.) The cuts couldn't have been too deep, though. I think that if they had been to the bone I'd have had infections or problems nervewise. As it is, my fingers feel normal, and the only things that really changed as a result were my fingerprints.

    Every time I start thinking about how I could hurt my fingers accidentally now, I get very, very cautious, to the point that I have to stop thinking about it in order to function properly.
