Speak for yourself!
After hundreds of street fights, hundreds of sparring matches, about 20 car wrecks, countless construction accidents, and who knows how many bicycle
and dirtbike wrecks, .....the extent of my lifetime accumulation of injuries is 4 sets of stitches (although had I gone to the ER that number would
likely be much, much higher!), never had a broken bone, never a cavity, one missing tooth that a big cowboy with a pipe knocked out through my lip,
and one chipped tooth from taking a header over the handlebars onto a street. I've removed a 3" ringshank nail from a nailgun from my own hand,
crashed my motorcycle multiple times with no helmet, been hit with pipes, baseball bats, and knives.
I'm just saying, I don't think the problem is that we bleed or break too easily, I think the problem is that we run to the ER for every little booboo.
A lot of blue-collar type folks will work to the end of a shift with no problem and then go get stitches or splints. A lot of folks just ignore the
pain or injury and never know they were broken. I bet a doc would have a heart-attack if they ever X-rayed my body and saw all the old healed
injuries that didn't get any care but healed up anyway.
Our problem is fear, over-reaction, and the luxury of good healthcare. Animals don't have those things, so they just go on with surviving and they
don't let their own thought-process, pain, and fear get in the way of their daily activities.
And, for the record, I actually do bleed easily.
Or so the tattoo artists always say, and I also get nosebleeds regularly, but it hasn't
seemed to matter much, so I ignore it.
