13 Things You Can’t Do With A Broken Arm

Don’t be fooled, breaking your arm does not mean you get a nice break from work. Welcome to six weeks of torture.

1. Have A Pain Free Day.

You’ve broken your arm. What do you expect? It is going to hurt and all you can do is take painkillers and pray it gets better.

2. Do Anything Quickly.

Give yourself twice as much time for everything. EVERYTHING! From the second you wake up, everything will be a chore. You will never take your arm for granted again!

3. Shower.

Is it too much to ask to be clean?

4. Get Dressed Easily.

Getting dressed is a test of skill and patience. You’ll consider it a huge achievement if you squeeze into a t-shirt in under two minutes.

5. Wear Nice Clothes.

Just accept it, you can’t look good in anything. YOU HAVE A HUGE CAST ON YOUR ARM!

6. Do Your Hair.

Congratulations! You’re dressed and almost ready to leave the house. But first, you must try to do your hair. Who knew that tying your hair in a ponytail could be so difficult with one arm? You better hope the ‘dragged through a bush’ look is in this season.

7. Cook.

What’s that? You’re hungry? Forget eating anything that remotely resembles a proper meal. Unless there’s a kind volunteer around to cook for you, you’re just going to have to settle for a couple of slices of bread for now.

8. Work.

If it has taken you two hours to get ready, there is no way you’re going to be useful at work. Looks like you’ll be taking six weeks off. How unfortunate!

9. Earn Any Money.

You were excited about having six weeks off work until you realised you weren’t getting paid for it. Now that you can’t afford to do anything, daytime TV is going to become your best friend. Hello Jeremy Kyle!

10. Shop.

Having no money means you can’t use your spare time to hit the shops. Even if you did have the money, how many bags can you carry with one arm? And are you forgetting something else? Nothing looks fashionable on you when you’re wearing a cast!

11. Avoid Going To The Hospital.

The hospital is going to become your second home and if you want to be fixed, there’s nothing you can do about it.

12. Scratch An Itch.

I’m so sorry, you’re just going to have to wait until that itch under your cast passes. Unlucky.

13. Sleep Comfortably.

It’s been a hard day. All you want to do is curl up in a ball and sleep. No chance! Might as well stick your arm in the air and deal with it. Sweet Dreams!
