About an hour ago, I realized I couldn't get it off my finger, and since then, the trying has somehow made my finger bloat up so that the ring looks like the belt of a fat sherriff and my skin/finger are the beer-belly.
It hurts a little, but not that much. But the concern is that it's stuck on my finger and will not come off. I've tried ice, and soap, and just pulling, but it all hurt too much to continue. I've been assured by my parents that if I hold it over my head for a while the swelling will go down by tomorrow morning and then I can take it off and throw it far, far away from me.
Or, I can go somewhere to get it cut off my finger.
The situation with that, though, is that 1) it implies a level of over-weightness that I don't feel to great about, and I don't think is true at all, dammit! 2) i do like this ring, and would love to get it re-sized so I can wear it in future 3) how the hell is it at all possible to remove a ring without cutting skin? I have images of my finger being split open and it really freaks me out.
I have a problem with experiencing pain; namely that I don't like to do it.
