Note* Hi everyone - this is Beth1187. I always wanted to use the user name humptydumpty as my injury is from a fall. So I finally was able to change it recently. The first few posts I make I will remind everyone who I was, until you are use to the new name*
My greatest fear since my injury was another fall. I was injured from a fall and somehow managed not to fall again in like 6 yrs! Until yesterday
I was at a cleaning job with hubby ( we have a small family owned commercial cleaning biz, that I am only able to help with a little here and there with the dusting ) - dusting, walking and talking on the phone ---- NOT GOOD for someone who needs to walk most of the time with their cane!
I stumbled once and got back my balance but in that process I stuck my foot under this huge floor mat and "flew" about 3' across the room. It is amazing how fast your brain thinks! All I was thinking was "protect the back protect the back"!.
I landed on my stomach and other then being sore I thought I was OK, until I walked. OH Boy then the pain hit, but it hit me in my pelvic bone - weird!
Thankfully we were at a Drs. office cleaning and he was there. So he gave me an adjustment and I feel MUCH better today, except for some soreness.
So one of my greatest fears happened and I am "OK"
Maybe mshumptydumpty is a good name for me lol
L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
