This happened literally 2 hours ago. I had a high risk contact with someone who tested positive for covid a couple days ago, so I needed to get tested to see if I had the virus or not.
It was my first test ever. I didn't know what to expect other than someone poking with a stick in my nose. I heard from people it could hurt a little and since I have a high pain tolerance, I thought it would just feel as a minor inconvenience.
Oh boy was I wrong. I sat on this plastic chair and for some reason I had my hands between my legs. When the doctor put this stick in my nose, it hurt so much I grabbed onto that chair. It felt like she was poking my brain or something. Because I was so overwhelmed of the pain, I squeezed the edge of that chair so hard (like when you squeeze someones hand when you're in pain) that I accidentally snapped a part of the chair.
Snapping the chair scared the shit out of me that I moved my head, while the stick was still in my nose. That made it even more hurt. That doctor was also looking at me like 'damn wtf did you just do?' She was startled. When she got the stick out of my nose, I looked at my hand and I saw I cut myself to the chair.
It wasn't a deep cut, so I covered it up in some paper towel and excused myself a million times to that doctor for breaking her chair. She found it kinda funny I guess. The chair wasn't worth a penny (that's why it broke so easily) that they didn't really mind.
This situation just took 10 seconds so everything was going so fast. But jfc my head hurts a lot now because of that stick that poke almost in my brain. My hand is fine tho.
Tl;dr: I broke a chair and cut my hand while getting a corona test.
Edit: indeed, double fuckup because I didn't wait long enough so I have to undergo this experience twice...
Edit 2: In my country you can't get tested just because you 'want' it. You need a genuine reason. We had a shortage of tests a couple months ago so only essential workers and people who were nearly dying could be tested. Now everyone with symptoms or hogh risk contacts can be tested. It's not like luxembourg for example where everyone get every couple weeks a letter from the government that it is time to get tested again, we need a reason.
Edit 3: I tested negative! And just for your information, I didn't break any of the rules in my country. We are allowed to have one contat we can cuddle and don't have to be 6ft away from. My 'cuddlebuddy' works in a psychiatric facility. She got covid from one of the patients there. No one broke rules, no one is an asshole here.
