The other day, ballerina posted about her fall from her wheelchair & how black & blue she is, and sore. Being the self-centered sympathy hound that I am, I shared about my fall a week previous. Well, the klutz gods thumped me good last night. I woke up about 2:30 to use the bathroom. Being half asleep I didn't notice my right foot was completely asleep. I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. I was looking at my foot as I continued to head for the bathroom. And down I went. Didn't even try to catch myself. Landed quite literally on my nose. So hard the bridge is swollen & turning lovely colors. I even have rug burn on my upper lip & the side of my nose. I look perfectly charming. My head is still ringing. I can breathe through both sides though. And that bleed cease stuff I have stopped the blood pretty fast. So, ballerina, I'm sorry for hijacking your post. I hope you're on the mend. I suspect I'll look worse before I look better. Didn't break my glasses, though! What a klutz.
Oh my word! Sounds like you've done a very good job there! Sending sympathies and hugs to you, and wishing you a speedy recovery.x
Sorry to hear you took a tumble.. hopefully you have gone to the Doctor to make sure your nose is not broken. Heal quickly
How awful for you. Hope you heal quickly and with little discomfort.
Yikes, I hope you haven't done anything really serious and you heal quickly.
Oh, good grief. I hope you have your nose checked by the doctor, it could be broken, similar thing happened to my aunt and she waited two days, it was broken and it was very painful. I’m praying that it is not broken with you.
How awful! I hope you heal quickly.
Thanks for everyone's very kind concern. Doctor just shook his head. Nose is badly bruised but nothing broken. Sure was a surprise when that darned floor jumped up & attacked me in the middle of the night! How I didn't break something, I don't know. Guess the good Lord protects babies, fools & the occasional klutz. Thanks again. Love KPers' kindnesses!
So sorry this had to happen to you. Heal quickly.
Oh my, that was a nasty fall! Please take care of yourself. Sending you a little prayer that you heal quickly & that you never fall again!
Sorry you had the fall. I did like you and broke my nose. Just told people that my nose broke my fall.
Try using “witch hazel” and cotton ball and put gently on the bruises.
It shortens the life span of the bruises.
Hope it works for you.
Thanks again, everyone! I feel a little better this morning. I'll try that witch hazel.
