Blood Blister

About a week ago I bumped my hand at work and even though it hardly hurt at first, it developed into the first blood blister of my life.

On Monday when I was making the bed, I saw a pizza-sized bloodstain on the pillow. First I thought I had a nose bleed or my dog scratched himself bloody but, no, the blister burst.

It's bled nonstop ever since, just a drizzle but after a while it soaks through any sized bandage and drips over whatever I'm near. Naturally this happened when I was grading papers so the class has something else to laugh about.

Everything I've found on the Internet about blood blisters just says to give them time but I'm feeling a couple pints low at this point.
