I Fell Down…

Ok, so today was supposed to be a post filled day. Friday Finds, Kristin Stefanos phone interview and Lost Devil’s Throne book review, and winners announced for my Giveaway-A-Day Countdown to My Birthday Bash! There was however a problem last night when I was working on all of this… I fell down the stairs… AGAIN!

See, every now and then my ankle likes to somewhat give out and it just kind of rolls. If I had a normal set of stairs this might not be a big problem, but my stairs are narrow and steep. So, when I try to avoid spraining my ankle when It gives out on me (b/c that’s happened a bunch of times) the result is me falling down the stairs. Well, half the stairs.

For once I took care of myself and got ice and laid down right away, but the damage was a bit done already. One of my wrists and knees got twisted a bit, and my upper thigh and butt has a fist sized bruise with carpet burn on top of it b/c I was wearing a night gown as I went sliding down the stairs. LOL Do you all have a funny picture in your head now?

The result is me not really being able to sit here and work at the computer for very long for at least today, and maybe a bit longer, I’ll have to see. I’ll try to get a bit done here and there. Hopefully I’ll at least be able to announce my contest winners tomorrow. But hey, at least I can walk this time! <3

**hugs** Sorry to hear that honey! Get better soon.

Odd, this must just be the time for trips and falls. Last week I feel down the concrete steps in front of my work!

Have a good weekend ~ Miranda

Hope you feel better soon. I have a weak ankle so I have to concentrate when walking so that it does not cause me to fall. I fell down stairs at work yrs ago (actually 4 times) and was holding on to rail (thank goodness). I stepped down to next step but my knee met the step instead of my foot. I slid down 2 steps and twisted my back and arm bad. Had to use crutches and I am only 5 ft tall and they were to tall. lol I really try hard to not fall any more. When you are tired why don't you just come down stairs on your fanny like kids do?
I had to do that one time when I sprained my ankle.

I think maybe you need a diff place to live without stairs!! Know what you mean though about having something just all of a sudden give out on you, my knees both do it and it has caused some fun times in the past with falling too!
Rest up and the other will still be there waiting for you, we won't run away we want your best attention and for you not to be in pain!!!

OH, I do hope you feel better soon. I so understand the stairs thing. And my ankle doesn't go out. :) We have very narrow and steep stairs as well, and well...I have fallen down them. It hurts! Bad. So, I do hope you heal soon. :)
