(Looking at the laptop screen is making my ishoo's worse so I'll be swift!)

Last night I smacked my head on the bathroom cabinet. Cue loads of blood and swearing and a mahoosive bump come morning.

It's still killing me, I've taken as much paracetamol and ibuprofen as possible.

Other than getting off the computer and lying in a darkened room, is there anything else I can do?

Still swearing at bathroom cabinet when go into the bathroom. Would I be unreasonable to take an axe to the annoying --f%$ker-- article? grin

fu4ker does that work?!

Try an icepack? Packet of frozen peas wrapped in a tea-towel would do if you don't have icecubes around.

Good plan! Think (not too certain as appear to have knocked quite a bit of memory / sense out of my head with the blow!) that DH did something similar in the wee small hours of this morning.
I'll head to the freezer grin

If it's really bad, it might be worth phoning NHS Direct to see if they think you need to get checked out, or whether you should keep an eye out for any other symptoms which would be a worry.

oh blow (quite literally!) hadn't thought about that. It is fairly painful still, will see how it goes this evening. Thank you Amum

Do you think it might be an idea to move the cabinet?
(When you're feeling better, of course)

grin Would be a fantastic plan but it's beast and is screwed / glued / fixed to the wall so well that I fear the actual wall would move before the cabinet!

I suppose the only other option is to have a special safety hat on a hook outside the door grin

Can you put something under it so you can't get too near? I mean, obviously you've got to be able to open it, but are you sort of bending down & coming up under it, or do you just walk smack into it from the side?

I bent down to pick something off the floor and stood straight up into the corner of it!

God, the air went blue, but in a subdued wasy as it was 1am and the girls were in bed.

Can't see how I'd attach anything to the bottom of it, unless I used my staple gun I suppose..... <have a vague plan unravelling here>!
