It was a nail that needed to come off but if it did just then the pain would have been exhausting so I bandaged it up unable to look at the results. For weeks on weeks the bandaged appeared to hold everything together as I assumed the nail would remain but when you don’t look you never know what truly remains. Then suddenly the band aid was gone as was the nail and I thought where did it all go. I felt no pain and some how regretted it.
