My altercation

Jan 27, 2018 9:24 PM

Yesterday, I got into a really bad fist fight (I was the only one effected by the way) that left me in pain. He was given a school punishment and will possibly be facing assault charges and a civil lawsuit for emotional damages. However, it feels really bad. Today, I have really bad arm pain.

Wow. I'm very sorry that you were in a fight. Since this could go to court make sure you document all physical pain, psychological symptoms such as anxiety, confusion, memory loss, nightmares, flashbacks, etc. You should also take photographs of any bruising. I would also recommend that you see a doctor because you may be more injured than what you are feeling.

Nate (i'm assuming from your screen name). Could I recommend as AmbrielleLyn did, documenting everything. Take pictures of yourself ensuring you have pictures of all physical injuries and write about the emotional impact. I would recommend closely documenting everything (pain diagram, pain level, fatigue, stress etc.) Using the pain diary in this app. I'm here to help if you need some support. It'd help as well to try to document as much of what happened in the fight as you can, from what happened beforehand to the fight to the aftermath. I know it will be difficult but with support you can do it. Also, do you have CatchMyPain or PainCompanion? Both are this app and I personally use both but only pain companion allows you to message other people
