I have foot drop and other walking issues. Dumb me got tired of waiting for someone to come home to go get something from our food storage downstairs and started my journey downstairs by myself.
This is why I should not have done that:
My toes caught on a step, leg bent behind me as I fell forward, shin hit the wood step twice as I bounced down, both knees bruised, one knee scraped up, other bruises, and arm hurts into neck from catching myself with the arm. And this is one time that I think it hurts as bad or worse than it looks. Today is worse than 2 days ago when it happened.
So this is my number 1 reason why not to use the stairs.
Lets make this fun. Anyone else have stories to share of why they should NOT have used the stairs? I know I'm not the only one who has fallen. Please share.
Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
