I have had two severe black eyes in my life! The first was when my son was a baby and the lid of the washing machine fell down clipping my right eye brow bone as I was lifting nappies out of the machine! It was a jolly good thing that my ex,who was rat bag in so many ways,was never physically violent,so no one would have believed me if I HAD said it was his doing!!!HA HA HA !!! The second time was just over 2 and a half years ago when I blacked out and fell flat on my face to the tiled floor at the bottom of 3 steps! Now,THIS was a very serious shiner and I spent a week in hospital with 3 fractures to the left eye socket,as well as a broken nose and I have been now left with permanent nerve damage through the left side of my face! I looked like I had gone 10 rounds with Muhammad Ali and lost every one!! I will never comprehend why boxers do what they do for a living!! I still haven't really fully recovered from those breaks,and some of the issues are never going to resolve.The pain was so intense being in my face,that I will never, EVER forget it!
Yes. I also had to have an op. IT HURT. Then you forget and try to rub it. Ouch. On top of that you get the 127 questions relating to which stairs you fell down, door you walked into or husband's fist you "encountered". *sigh*
