    Hi all, Munky’s back with an important question…

    A little backstory first, Friday night I damaged myself. I’ll admit I had been doing a little drinking (I only drink socially) that night, and was feeling a bit tipsy. A friend and I were messing around while walking back from a “drunken adventure,” as we call it. He took off running and I took off after him at full speed. The next thing I know I’m stumbling, and I remember saying “Oh, sh**!” The funny part is it wasn’t like a scared “Oh, sh**,” it was more calm like a “Yeah, this is going to hurt…buck it up…” kind of “Oh, sh**!” (if that was puncuated correctly I’ll be impressed…)

    So, I tried the duck and roll, which was pretty successful at keeping me from dragging my face across the pavement. But I guess I had a bit too much forward momentum, and I landed hard on my left shoulder, then rolled twice. Heh, my friends started laughing at me until they noticed me just sitting on the road clutching my shoulder. I didn’t mind though. If I wasn’t hurting so much, I probably would have been laughing as well. On the way back home, I was able to get my arm over my head once (probably due to the alcohol), so I didn’t think I was that bad off. That is, until the next morning, when I couldn’t move it without holding it with my other hand.

    I decided it was time to go to the hospital. After half an hour in the waiting room, half an hour waiting for x-rays, 15 minutes of x-rays, then another half hour waiting for the doctor, I was finally told I had broken my collar bone. But instead of the more common middle break, mine broke where it connects to the shoulder socket. The bone had kinda popped up and pushed in a bit.

    This brings me to my question. I was prescribed Vicodin 5/500 for pain and I have been taking them. Does this count as a relapse?

    P.S Life with one arm sucks…
