on friday i slammed my thumb into the cardoor
its swollen and bruised all around my thumb, it feels numb to touch it, its throbbing, and almost my whole fingernail is black.
i dont really want to go to the dr because i have no health insurance, and if its broken theres nothing really they can do for it anyway (right?)
i was also just in the hospital last month and have a pretty big bill i'm trying to figure out how to pay off, so i really dont want to add on to it....

should i just keep icing it? or wrap it up?
