Falling Down the Stairs
This morning I was all ready to do some errands, then go in to work to put in a good six hours on my writing. Parking is free on Veteran's Day, so I could even drive.
However, my klutziness (toes broken by non-moving furniture, anyone?) had a different idea. Somehow I slipped on our carpeted stairs, hitting five or six steps, and dropping everything in my hands before coming to a stop. Initial soreness included my tailbone area, my right shoulder and elbow, my left heel, elbow and hand.
After a number of hours the pain has resolved itself to extreme pain in the tailbone whenever I move, some sort of groin pull and soreness in the middle of my back on the left side. Plus my right shoulder is starting to ache again.
Usually I fall up the stairs with a small stumble. Falling down the stairs is a different story. And not the story I was planning on writing today!
