Falling down

Falling down stairs with arthritis and gout impacted joints isn't my idea of a fun start to the day

Oh Reaper, and I thought I was having a rough morning! I pray you didn't break anything! You will be in my prayers!

Reaper!!! What an aweful thing to have happen. Last time I fell down the stairs, I fractured my neck and broke my arm.. I am sorry that happened to you. The other day I was having a wonderful conversation with a very dear friend and I fell and was on the floor not knowing how I was going to get up. When I did I was hurting but didn't go to the doctor for 3 days. Turned out I had broken 2 ribs and fractured my sternum. Not fun at all. I hope that you are not seriously injured. Please take good care of youreself and get well soon. {{{Hugs}}}

Thanks guys. Twas a fall of great skill. From top stair to the ground and missing every stair in between. Didn't think much of it and only a broken toe. Well, until today. RA flare up and cripples my hands. Sometimes l think someone or something is out to get me
