Three times in the past two weeks, my belly button ring has gotten SERIOUSLY snagged on my belt buckle.
Each time, the ring snagged when I was bent over doing something. Once, while gathering firewood, it got so snagged I COULDN'T STAND UPRIGHT. The latest incident was this morning.
Oh, god. The pulling. The pulling!!!
So, I am taking the damn thing out. I've had it for 12 years and the only time I even remember it is there is when I snag it. It was a silly college thing and I've been over it for about 11 years. I've just been too lazy to deal with it. It was a small miracle I went through with getting it in the first place. The idea of or actual sensation of pulling skin freaks me out to no end and I've been know to pass out at the mere sight of needles.
This morning, while I practiced meditative, calming breathing A. tried to unscrew the ball so he could take it out, but to no avail. I think I am going to have to go to a parlor and have it removed. (It is still the original captive bead ring.) Every web site I've seen recommends going to a parlor or having your own pair of ring opening pliers.
My belly button feels weird.
Oh, God. I can't get the sensation of pulling skin to go away. I am feeling a little sick.
Do you have any youthful piercings or tatoos you wish you could remove?
