The things I have to go through to be me

This afternoon, I decided to cook a frozen pizza, it tasted like crap, but anyways. That's not the point of this post.Just a reminder, i don't have any feeling in my abdomen. Later on, I happened to look down at my abdomen when I was changing my cloths and saw a huge welt. I burnt the crap out of my abdomen and had no idea. Does anyone realize how scary that is? What if I used the burner instead of the oven? I could of caught on fire and not realized until severe damage had been done. I'm terrified to cook ever again. Luckily the burn I have now isn't bad, about 2 inches wide. But my stomach is literally right under that part of my skin. I could of really hurt myself!

That must have been scary.

Can you get some sort of protective apron for cooking?

Aww that really sucks. Not nearly to the same extent as you but one day I woke up and noticed a scar about 1.5 inches long right over my spine mid back. I had no clue how it got there and days later I figured out it was likely from my electric blanket. I felt absolutely nothing, scary knowing I burned myself without even feeling it. I feel for you it is really scary.
