I caught my fingers on a heavy bag and the door knob. It made my two
fingers, pinky & wedding ring fingers swell up. The swelling would not go
down . I had it x-rayed, did all sorts of ice and massages, finally it did
come down just a bit to screamily pull the ring off (I wasn't about to have
it cut it off). The doctor(s) said that the ring was too tight and was
causing my finger(s) to swell - they poo-pooed the fact that I had caught my
fingers in the door. How dumb can these doctors be. But, it apparently was
not the ring - I knew that! Fingers still swollen. Ring(s) will not go on.

At first I wondered how it would feel not to have a wedding ring on. I
don't think much about it anymore. DH has never worn a wedding ring. So
we're still the two look-alikes.
