Hi guys,my sister called me talking about the solar eclipse said she was try to look at it, so I go downstairs to see if I could see anything, I live in an upstairs apartment. I started down the stairs and near the bottom 4 steps up I missed a step somehow, I went sliding down the remaining 3 steps and onto the cement below. OMG the stairs are cement you know the pebble kind. I skinned both of my shins and my elbow (that would be my bad arm) and my knee. I do not think I hurt my neck I did not feel any shooting pain but it has been bothering me all day anyway. I do not even know why I did it, seems stupid you cannot even look at the sun but hind sight is 20/20 right. Gosh you guys I am using all my strength to just to handle the plate I a;ready had!!I am skinned up pretty bad I put some hydrogen peroxide on them (OUCH) and bandaged my self up and now have ice on both feet and elbow. I see the swelling and bruises forming, I can feel pain on all injured areas and my neck but I fell face first some I am hoping it is all just sore from impact. You think I am trying to hurt myself huh? I have lived here for 6 yrs I never had any problems with these steps. I just want to cry I feel like i cant do anything. My nephew is joining the marines and there was a meet and greet yesterday for armed forces day and I went out there and just watched some of the events, went to dinner and came home. I did nothing but stand around yesterday and my neck was bothering me today because of that! I am sorry I am just a little discouraged that even normal living is not possible at this point. I will stay in and nurse my wounds.I have PT tomorrow I am going to cancel i am already sore so no thanks. Gosh this sucks.
