Bad news:

I just made a cup of herbal tea, and about three seconds after I poured the water out of the kettle I stumbled a little, and sloshed just-off-boiling water onto half of my hand.

Good news:

It was the hand with more parasthesia, which means that the water sloshed on the fingers where I (almost) can't feel heat or cold at all. So I didn't do the autonomic response to pain thing, which is good, because that probably would have involved letting go of the mug and spilling more just-off-boiling water everywhere. (And not incidentally staining everything with hibiscus.)

Bad news:

Uh, it turns out it's hard to hold your hand under cool running water for ten minutes when you can't tell how warm the water is and your cold water is ice cold and your hot water heater is finicky. I kept having to stick my other wrist in to go, oh, damn, now we're doing warm water.
