Fell again

Jan 30, 2016 4:48 PM

Soooo went outside this morning and my cane and foot hit black ice at the same time and went in two separate directions. Instant flare plus blood induced panic attack. Sitting on ice now, soaking through and freezing my butt (I was wearing shorts... Hot flashes, don't judge me lol) couldn't get up. So I'm trying to call my Sasquatch son on my phone and because I was trying to call him on my Wi-Fi number, of course that was the one spot where I didn't have Wi-Fi signal. Finally realized and called from the straight talk number. He answered and I told him I fell (I'm crying at this point) he yells, "oh crap be right there!" And hangs up. He was fast... Took forever to get my big behind up because, ice... and also because, hurting lots. But that was this morning, and now with a scabby knee and scratches down my leg I am in humongous body pain. Tomorrow. Is. Going. To. Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Oh, and if anyone wants a pro tip...... If you have a scabby knee and scratched up leg, a hot bath is not the best idea. I'm brilliant, no? They probably heard me yell three doors down. *sigh*

Oh man that sucks. Hope you recover soon

This morning is hell on a cane. Can barely move and I hurt in places that I didn't even know I had. My scabby knee is barely even felt underneath the other stuff. I feel like someone beat me up, fed me to a dental conscious beast (chewed forty times) who then shat me out at bullet train speed into a brick wall.... Which then fell on me. Needless to say..... OMG. Gentle hugs ❀

Damn, Phoenix... That sure was descriptive. I am so sorry that you are hurting so very badly. That just really sucks because you already deal with pain without falling. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that the pain settles down soon and you feel better. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Thank you, Alwayz 😊.... I used to be a weird freak before my brain decided to live in a fog lol. But the description is fairly accurate if only mildly exaggerated. Gentle hugs to you also and I hope that you are having a light pain day. ❀

Used to be a word freak not weird freak.... I'm STILL a weird freak lol

Thanks Phoenix!! Wishes for a lite pain day for me are most welcome as I am on overload at the moment. I've not slept and the pain is more than I can bear. It'll be ok though.. This too shall end.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Well that's good to know because I'm a weird freak too.. LOL!!

One of my favorite Bible phrases, "this too shall pass." Unfortunately I keep waiting for the fibro to "pass".... I'm afraid, however, that I will pass before it does..... Sigh. Feel better and know that you guys are always in my prayers.

Phoenixrising, Ouch! I'm so sorry you took a fall! For future reference, I saw cane tips on Amazon for use on icy surfaces. Maybe you could get one for your cane so there's less chance of a fall. I hope you were able to rest well today. And I'm praying you will heal quickly. Hugs & love! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

So sorry to hear about your fall Phoenix. Sounds like you need to move to Phoenix cause there's no ice on the ground here. I fall down constantly and I'm most famous with my friends for falling up the stairs. You wouldn't think it, but that is exceedingly painful.

I wish you a speedy recovery and prayers for minimal pain. Take care! Stay off the ice unless you have ice skates on. 😸

I have been notorious for falling up the steps for years. Now that I can't go up like I used to, it hasn't happened thank God.. I fell twice this last week. Once in the shower and once in my room and all I did was turn around to go get something I forgot and I lost my footing and fell over... Ugh!!! At any rate, hope you're doing alright and that you have a peaceful night sleep and a good Monday. {{{Hugs}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»
