need a hug

Well yesterday tea time i was coming down the stairs and my knee gave way and i ended up in a heap at the bottom of the stairs with my cats looking at me. Fortunately as i had neen replacing cushions on the my couch i had put the old ones at the bottom of the stairs and thank god i did because thats where i landed. my buttock and my foot were killing me along with other areas due to fibro and arthritis so i managed to get an elastic bandaged (wet) on my foot and that has helped - just some bruising now. really shook me up though. and luckily it was only the last three steps that i went down.

Poor you. Hope the bruising soon goes away. The shock is the worst though. Be nice to yourself, and here are some hugs to help you through the day!

Oh my word, please be careful and rest. There is nothing worse than loosing your footing on stairs is there? I hope you knee, foot, buttock etc are ok but I suspect you will be feeling a tad sore.

Remember if you are at all worried ring your doctors, you don't want to be in pain especially over the weekend.

Take care and here's a big ((((((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))))

Oh poor you! Its scary when you knees give way isnt it? It happened to me only once last summer and i fell in the garden and couldnt get back up. It hurts like anything but its the shock of it too i think. You must be feeling shaken today so as the others have said, be kind to yourself, do as little as possible and have a nice treat, wether its watching your favourite film or having a calorie bomb little snack! Am sending huge hugs and hoping you feel a little better soon. Much Love..Charlii xx

thank you all for your kind words. I am now back home as i have to visit my father each day as i am his carer - he is 86. I am still aching - my foot and my back but i dont think i have broke anything. i did put an elastic bandage on my foot and ankle but it does not seem to have done anything and i still feel shaken up. I have just sat down with a nice cup of tea so hopefully i should have a nice afternoon.

Hugs and wishes backl to you all
