I fell again
Here it is, the day before the 4th - I have things to do. But noooooooooooo, I had to go and FALL. Now I am achy all over, with a bruised hip, knees, wrist and a bloody elbow.
DO NOT WEAR FLIP FLOPS IF YOU ARE PRONE TO FALLS
I did not hit my head, thank God but I am having a hard time with my vision. It's like I can't focus as quickly as I did. I also had a headache on the top of my head. I must have jarred something in my head. Strange.
I tripped over my dog's leash line - caught it between my flip flop and I came crashing down on my cement walkway. Just missed the sprinkler head! My sweet husband came over and tried to pick me up (I hate that) I am no lightweight. I insisted I could get up myself, which I did. I hobbled into the house, and here I sit, with a bag of frozen blueberries on my head, an ice pack on my hip and a small icy thing I bought at the DollarTree on my knee. If I could stand it, maybe an ice bath? Burrrrrrrrrrr just thinking about it. Tonight I will soak in a tub with Epson salt.
I've gone years without falling. Not since I was a kid. Then about 2 years ago, I was scaling the doggy gate and (wearing flip flops) and went down hard. Tore a rotator cup on my shoulder. About 10 days later, I was at the dog park, and a Great Dane was having fun, and I had my back to him and he ran into me and I fell, tearing my other rotator cup and my knee.
Today was my 3rd fall.
I believe I am mostly sore, bruised...we'll see tomorrow.
