2007 and things are already out of their sockets.

Watching her car reversing I thought I had better step back a bit. Holding my sons hand I slowly shuffled back, step by step giving her plenty of space to manoevre her vehicle. Step by step then FLIP. I bounced backwards over a stack of drainage covers, fell on my butt, rolling back to my shoulders before my head hit the wall.
Immediately my shoulder was the first point of pain. Then elbow, ankle & back. Upon standing it was evident that my hip has been shot to hell again.
Feeling a bit better I progressed through the evenings activities in a blurred state, and even laughing on the phone with friends and chatting on MSN, thinking that I was 'normal'. The doctor was called (as I could not be convinced to go there) and arrived at 10pm, and popped my shoulder back into where it was supposed to be. Say hello to pain.

This morning I think it is back out of position again. It looks funny and so do I.
My hip is beyond help. Lets go to hospital.
And this is 2007. I hope this start is not how we mean to go on.

Does the incredible amount of laughter concerning this rather serious accident make me a sadist, or you a masochist?

I'm so confused CG. So, so, so confused.

Ah geez, CG, what a way to start 2007.

Tainted, you're definitely a sadist! lol.

Sorry to hear you had a fall, good job all that padding came in handy:)
I was shopping for joggers for H when I sat on what turned out to be a very short bench, I also went flying flat on my ass luckily only one person in shop at the time:)

but nzm...

My laughter is a contagious reaction to CG laughing her own ass off while telling me about it...

That does mean that she's at least part masochist, doesn't it?

nzm said...

If she was on heavy meds, she has a reason for laughing - you're just laughing at another's expense! :-))

Tainted Female said...

Nope, nope... I talked to her BEFORE she saw a DR... and if she was under the influence of anything, it shouldn't have been chemical/medical! Purely psychological!!!

I'm not all that evil. *evIlGrIn* It's her I tell ya, HER!

Hello All
Thanks for all of the kind (and unkind Long distance boohoo) messages.

Yes, it is true, I had no medication as such in my bloodstream when I spoke to tainted. BUT the first thing she said to me is "are you alright? you sound weird" or something like that....which I guess means that I did not sound normal (whatever that is ).

Anyway, I am feeling a lot better except for my hip. I have had the weekend to relax (I do not remember an ounce of it)and now it is time to face the world again.

Long Distance, thanks for telling me I had padding. I never knew that. Now I will have a complex. I thought you were the one with an A$$. Saying that, If I had done a belly flop I would have bounced along quite nicely on my tum.
