Exclamation DON'T PLAY WITH GUNS. What happens when people do...

So I got shot in the head by a lead pellet from a pellet gun. It was loaded to take out a pesky squirrel. But my little brother didn't know that, he did open it up to see if was loaded, but didn't actually check the barrel. So lang story short I was shot in the head by surprise, hit my vein or artery, blood start squirting out my head, and he also managed to hit a nerve because the area of impact went numb. Got a CAT scan, the pellet went apart into 2 pieces and they couldnt get it out.
So anyway theres my cool story bros.

And I thought this was going to be some comical youtube video of some idiot shooting himself in the foot or blowing his car up.

Nope. It's you. In am ambulance. Shot. I hope your brother is getting a beatdown.

I gasped like a little girl when I saw how close it came to your ear canal.
I'm glad you can be a good sport about it. Your little brother probably feels horrible.
But why did he pull on the trigger without watching where it was pointed regardless? Was he being careless or overconfident or what?

I also watched the TV repair video. A novice repair man wouldn't have bothered to check the fuse. Good job!!

Wow that sucks. accidents can be avoided when you don't point a gun Loaded or Unloaded at something you don't intend to shoot.

Also Treat every gun as if its loaded.

Those two thing can pretty much prevent any accident.

But glad your alright and now time to teach your brother some firearms safety.

I dont want to scare you. nerve endings can regenerate, but nerve cells cannot.

Depends. Nerves will always try to even if they are completely severed. But they do take longer than other body tissues and sometimes the symptoms get worse before getting better. How come you didn't ask the doc? Thought it would go away right away?

I think this is something you need to take up with the doctors that worked on you.
