The Hazards of being me

This month is out to get me. I fell outside of the local video store at the beginning of the month, didn't really get hurt it just kinda smarted for a bit then I was fine. However yesterdays fall freaking hurt. Richard and I were at moms house yesterday doing laundry and watching the football games, I had gone down to change the laundry around earlier and had almost fell going down the stairs to the basement because my right foot hurt when I stepped on it but managed to catch myself and didn't fall. I wasn't so lucky my last trip down the stairs, I don't know exactly what caused me to go down. I can only guess that my right knee just decided to quit working, cause the next thing I knew I was pitching forward and falling. I was able to grab the railing to keep myself from falling face first but this caused me to ride the stairs on my knees, threw my left elbow into the wall, and have to worry about hitting the closed door at the bottom of the stairs with my face. Lucky for me I was fast enough to get my hands in front of me so my face didn't hit the closed door but it hurt my hands hitting the door. Needless to say no one saw me fall but Richard and my brother heard it, it was a very loud thud thudding sound. After I opened the basement door my brother quickly quips that all I needed to do was knock. I laughed cause it was actually pretty funny.

My left knee and hip are still hurting today along with my left thumb and shoulder, I just am thankful that it isn't as bad as it could of been had I not grabbed the railing or if I had been outside and had gone down the front steps. Hopefully I can make it through the rest of the month without falling again.
