I am having a no-where kind of day. I want to be sad about this morning, but I want to ignore it even more.
I fell down the stairs. And I did it with Olympic skiier finesse.
How could I have been standing at the top, talking with the kids about the phone one second, with no intention in the world of actually *going down* the stairs... and then two seconds later be all akimbo at the bottom??
At least I didn't drop the phone. Nope, wouldn't want to harm the phone!
My left leg has been buckling a lot lately. I usually catch myself or grab onto something. And I know that I have been a little extra careful around stairs for the last few months because my depth perception is wonky and I get mixed up and swoon.
So my leg buckled, and of course, I went DOWN instead of backwards. And mistreated every joint in my body along the way.
My tail bone and elbows, and ankles are like screaming pixies. My neck has seized up and stubbornly refuses to obey right or left, up or down. And my left shoulder... gets worse by the hour in spite of a whack-load of anti-inflammatories. It's throbbing, and I can't move my arm backwards or up to my head. I've seen a lot of rotator cuff injuries in my time... and I'm scared.
And embarrassed. And feeling bodily-betrayed.
Have any of you dealt with stuff like this? Any advice?
