Well, Isn't That a Kick in the Head

Well, today wasn't all that eventful.....*after* I fell down the stairs.

Yes, I fell down the stairs this morning and NO I wasn't carrying a baby. Yes, that is the most important thing but OCCASIONALLY, it's nice to know someone is concerned about just selfish ol' me. I have since learned that wool socks are especially bad to walk down wooden stairs and that more than a few of my friends have taken that same dive bruising their ribs and banging themselves up.

My back is completely whacked out and I look like Quasimodo. I took some leftover pain medication from one of my miscarriages soon after it happened. That was not such a good idea. I apparently cannot write research papers while I am loopy. It didn't feel all that bad this afternoon, but now I'm really hurting. I'm thinking that tomorrow morning is going to be even worse.

And I have no idea how it happened, apart from the obvious. I just remember falling down and thinking "Surely, I'm going to stop. Surely, I'm going to stop now. SURELY, I'm going to stop NOW, there are no more stairs!!!"

Great. I really don't want to deal with this right now. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

Have you been to the Dr? I know sometimes you feel like you could have saved your money since they only told you what you already know and charged you a billion dollars for it but if you've broken something...
hope you feel much better really soon.

I'm just getting around to reading this version, Anita - a little more detailed and dramatic in more than 140 characters.

Really really sorry that you got such a bad smacking. I too hope that you'll be able to find someone who can smooth you back out and banish the bruises ASAP.

I dropped the broom down the stairs on Friday afternoon while the kids were sleeping and I kept thinking the same thing....It'll stop, it has to stop soon, how can that darn broom still be falling. My kids are really light sleepers and normally, I just sit and play on the computer while they I don't knock the broom down into the basement and wake them up.

Anyway, I sure wish you would have dropped your broom down the stairs instead of yourself. Hope you feel better soon

OK, it's a few days later's your body doing?
