    Default nasty fall, after a horrible day. Lucky me!

    hello all, so great my day started bad and ended worse. Seemed like every little thing that could go wrong did yesterday. I had a VERY hectic day at the office where I didn't even had time to have breakfast much less lunch before my reminder alarm went off at two reminding me of a three o'clock appointment. I had to leave running as my appointment was in the city. I couldn't find parking, so I parked in a one hour spot to check in, to go move it. My pressure was high and my tachycardia was kicking in at 120. I attributed to not eating.
    Once I finished I was tempted to get a cup of coffee to hold me off, but went against my better because I thought it would affect my sleep. Anyway on my way to the car I slipped in a pile of leaves and went straight down. As some of you know I have bad knees and fell directly on it, Im ok nothing happened other than of course some bruising and Im sore, but I wanted to say that they're still kind hearted soles left. So many people came to help me and get me up, and asking me was I ok, did I need anything. A elderly lady in particular was extra helpful in even taking me by my arm and walking me to my car, I thought that was so kind of her, when I should be me helping grand-mom's cross the street, here was this grand-mom helping me : /

    sorry you are so sore.
    but glad it turned out fixable.

    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    So glad that you are ok! I know what you mean, I met an elderly woman in a support group for chronic pain and she was more worried about me than her. Some people really put things into perspective. I find the elderly are SO much more supportive than younger people because they have ailments and understand the daily struggle. They show so much strength. I'm sorry about your fall, I hope your knees heal up. I have bad knee problems so I can understand. I fell two weeks ago trying to put on my shorts. I didn't hit my knees (praise GOD!) but I did have a huge bruise on my upper thigh. It's fine now and I hope you are feeling better. Busy days put so much stress on us Lupies, don't they? Happy Thanksgiving ((hugs))
