My LDR boyfriend had an accident yesterday, he fell off a step ladder and hurt his shoulder. First when he said he fell down the ladder I immediately thought he might have hurt his head (he's got brain damage and PTSD from a biking accident in his teens that put him in coma)... thank goodness it's only his shoulder and he went to the doctor 2 hours ago because he couldn't really use his arm. I am pretty sure the doctor will send him off to get it X-rayed... which is really bad for him. It's such a trigger for him being at a hospital. I tried to give him some quick coping methods before he left... but I just worry it will be bad for him... and I can't be there, I can't even reach him before he gets back. Last time he was at a hospital some months ago (to have a sleep study done) he had such a bad panic attack he bolted out of the room. I just need to know he's okay... I'm not 'that' worried about his arm... I hate that he's in pain, and I'm thinking it's dislocated and needs to put back in place... which is going to hurt like hell. I am mostly worried for his mental state. And I hate not being there to hold his hand. Ugh. LDR sucks sometimes... he is so sad he can't be here when I struggle... and I am crying because I can't be there for him... I just hope he's okay.
