I’m feeling sorry for myself tonight. I fell earlier when I was out walking my fur baby Dali. I haven’t hurt myself badly really, scraped & bruised knees, elbows an hands. Ive got good at lifting my head/face up so I don’t head butt the ground resulting in stitches - had waaaay too many incidents of split heads… It doesn’t always work however, but it did tonight thankfully. What I’m still amazed at was the fact that a bloke walking his two dogs didn’t offer me any assistance at all. He was less than 50 yards away from where I was half sitting, half lying sprawled on the ground, pulling leaves out of my hair. What a job I had trying to get up off the ground, but he didn’t come over to me to ask if I was alright. Yes I could of shouted out to him for help but if it doesn’t come naturally to him to offer assistance, then I kinda don’t want it. And yeah I know that could be to my own detriment. I’m just surprised again at how ignorant people can be. I don’t know why I’m surprised at this though cos it’s happened plenty times. He saw me walking past the clearance to the field with Dali then a few minutes later he came through and saw me lying on the track road. I know what i would do in that situation an it wouldn’t be to keep staring whilst walking away from the person lying on the ground with a dog running around her trying to lick her human up off the ground.
I’m sore, everything’s aching so I’ve had a few extra pain killers tonight and munched a big bag of malteasers. Bed now with my live furry hot water bottle & I’ll be prepared for the stiffness tomorrow. It’s always worse the day after a fall, I think anyway. It’s not just the injuries from falling though. It’s the internal shaking & fright I get after a fall. It always takes my confidence away for a few days aswell cos I’m scared I’ll fall again. Urgh F-you MS!!!
