Re: Ever been stabbed by a cactus?I was actually quite worried at first. It got me right in the sweet spot under the knee cap and over the next big leg bone, what felt like through the ligaments or cartilage or whatever. But after a few minutes and a couple of holes golfing on it, there was no pain, swelling nor redness, so I figured I was alright. When I got out of the car after the hour's drive home, it was a little tight in that knee, but I wasn't terribly concerned. And now it is fine. No sign of anything. Thanks for the concern though.
Re: Ever been stabbed by a cactus?I've never been tagged by a big one but I used to have a few smaller ones when I was younger. One like this in particular got me a few times. It feels fury to touch but it leaves hundreds of tiny little spikes in your hand that hurt like hell and are near impossible to get out because they're so tiny.
Re: Ever been stabbed by a cactus?I got one. I used to mountain bike many miles a day (20-30) when I lived in Phoenix. I once fell off the bike, and put my hand down to break my fall. I landed right on a cholla cactus. The cholla's barbs are so small (as wide as hair), that you can't grab onto them to remove them. What's worse, they have barbs so you can't pull them back out. Once they go in, bottom line, they don't come out. This was the most pain I've ever felt from a cactus related injury.
Exuse me but does anyone know what that type of cactus is because I have one of them. when I got it I just read how much water it needed then tossed the slip away hat had all the details, now I am really needing it or it may die (not the water) can you please tell me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org I really need help and FAST!
