i've been gone for about a week, was at work and had a Hopper with about 1500 primers in it explode in my face, a week later I can finally see good enough to get on here and share my experience. I ruptured an ear drum and scratched up the other so my hearing is still screwed up, and I burnt the cornea off in both eyes so my vision is gonna be bad for a while. I had burns all down the right side of my face which have surprisingly already healed. I still have metal particles in my hands, face, and eyes but the Dr said they would work out on their own and everything is just going to take time. Still don't know if my vision and hearing will be as good as it was and probably won't know for a couple weeks yet.
I still don't know how it happened, I had a jam in the primer which is nothing new and went to clear it just like many times before. I see a blinding white flash and hear a dull thud (my coworkers said it was about the loudest boom they've ever heard) and the next thing I know I'm on the floor.
past all the pain all I could think about was my 3 month old daughter and if I'm gonna be blind for the rest of my life and not able to watch her grow up. And all this happened 2 days after I gave my 2 weeks notice because I found a better job.
