I had a bad fall about 2 hours ago. I am alright. Have a black eye and cheekbone is real swollen and black and blue.
I was re potting a plant by my terrace and it is on a slight slope. I was bending over and I went totally forward and fell on my face. Stunned me for a few minutes and I was quite shaken.
I have some vertigo and must have lost my balance.
The tears finally stopped. This frightened me. I love my home in the woods and this has made me more aware that I need to be careful. Cell phone always in pocket and Miss Callie sat beside me looking at me. If her eyes could have spoke - she was wondering what happened to her mistress.
I am so thankful I did not break anything. My shoulder, neck, arm, wrist and hand are sore. I am putting ice on my face and getting ready to eat some cabbage soup that has been simmering. After eating I will take a couple of Motrin.
It has left me so aware how easily an accident can happen and how easily someone can break a bone.
