I took your good advice and called my doctor, and she suggested a crash helmet and assisted living. (Seriously...I had a CT scan this morning and think all must be well since nobody hollered anything about cutting my head open STAT!) I did quite a number on myself, though, so it looks like I will be taking lots of epsom salt baths, popping a few muscle relaxers, and just generally taking it easy for a bit. But can I just say that when one tumbles to the ground like a sack of hammers, it is so good to know that there are wonderful people out there who will gently tell you to get yourself to the doctor and stop screwing around.
I hope that wherever you are is exactly where you want to be and that you will stay warm and safe and dry (and UPRIGHT) !
