I slipped on a bed sheet then slid across the room in a complete spread eagle. I tried to break my fall but ended up pounding my backside and wrist into the floor. It hurt like hell. The pain moved from my butt, through my spine and into my neck.
It was an unbelievable pain. I closed my eyes and waited for the ache to subside- legs still spread eagle. After a few seconds, the pain in my back went away, but it took a few minutes for my wrist to stop throbbing. I sloppily raised myself up from the floor. I was a little stiff, but had work to do. So I continued my labor.
How stupid of me. I didn’t notify anyone of the fall. And even an hour later, after my back tightened and I was unable to walk upright I continued to work. I went home in complete distress, helped my kids with homework, made dinner, gave them baths and put them to bed- as if nothing was wrong. I eventually crawed into bed and tried to pray the agony away.
Now twenty-four hours later, I’m able to walk upright and move around, but there’s a discomfort in my lower back that won’t go away. And the pain in my wrist has spread to my elbow. I’m sure something’s wrong. But I probably won’t go to a doctor, or tell anyone that I fell.
