Hi everyone! OP here. We were out at a nightclub for a Halloween event. I was standing at the edge of the dance floor talking to my boyfriend and the girl was behind me where I couldn't see her. I was carrying a cardboard hammer and I moved it and felt it touch something, then turned around and saw this girl cringing. I apologized two or three times and gave her a hug. As some people guessed, I referred to her as a "drama queen" only here, and it was to show what I thought before I knew that she had had surgery; a person who was in good physical health wouldn't have reacted so strongly to such a light tap. I did not hit her on purpose, and I certainly didn't think she was a drama queen after hearing what happened to her. Thanks for the comments!

First, it doesn't say "right after". Second, it depends on the surgery. I went to a (tame) party two weeks after a relatively mild brain surgery because I felt up to it, I was able to go with very supportive and attentive friends, and it felt really, really good to be able to do something fairly normal and social again. The following weekend I went to a wedding. I certainly didn't have any alcohol at either event.
It's because that's what OP thought at the time. For example, if an FML were to say: Today, some asshole tripped me with cane, so I yelled at him. Turns out he's actually blind. FML It's what they thought in the moment. They don't think they're still an asshole or drama queen (or at least I hope not).
You couldn't have known OP, accidents happen. Plus, why was she there if she just had brain surgery?
1) was the party at her house? 2) why title her a "drama queen" here after knowing the details? 3) FYL for hitting someone, albeit playfully, after they had a surgery you were unaware of. If not their house, I am sorry to say, not really your fault for trying to goof around with them.
what are you doing knocking people on the head in the first place, particularly someone you barely know?
Not really a big deal. You accidently knocked her, you apologized. She really shouldn't have been at a party, since it is really easy to get knocked over or bumped into. But maybe she just wanted to have some fun... but really as long as she is ok and takes it easy for the rest of the night it is all good.
The apologizing profusely part I get, the calling her a drama queen now after knowing she had surgery, not so much... I get it was to attest to your initial perception but there's something funky about it to me
