I had a stand at a community event today, where I had samples of various 'weeds', and info on their properties, clearly stating my non-therapeuticness!
While all these marvelous things were from out the back of my place (except plantain, which won't grow for me), I don't generally use them medicinally.
It went well, but I came up with 'hippycrite', to describe how I felt....
Anyway, I got home and managed to peel a massive chunk out of my thumb. Blood all over the show, and pretty annoying in the middle of a marmalade session...
I smashed comfrey leaf and calendula flower into a poultice, and it's looking really clean; but the big deal for me is that despite looking pretty brutal, it doesn't hurt

Wow, glad it's not hurting. Sounds like you made up for being a 'hippycrite' in spades.

I'm smearing all sorts on it (well, around it, anyway. Ouch)
Cleavers (Galium aparine) and plantain tomorrow. Of course I won't have a clue what's working best: I clearly need a 'control' thumb
 
The glass is neither half full or half empty. It is too big. But this tiny ad is just right:
