Falling … again …

I ended 2015 with a hairline fracture in my ankle from a fall.  Today, the last day of January 2016 I fell again.  This time it was onto hard concrete but luckily what I was carrying broke and broke my fall.  I have wrenched my shoulder and bruised my elbow up on my left arm.  I don’t think anything is broken but the pain is impressive.  I am going to the doctor tomorrow for something else and  will add this to the list.  I am not a great PG visit person, preferring to manage at home.  As long as the pain settles I won’t go over to the Doctors today.  When it happened I just sighed.  Here I am trying to improve my health and I am so clumsy I can trip over nothing or in this case, a step I have walked over for the past 20 odd years.  But it is what it is so I will get it checked.  Adapt to any limitations from it and just keep trying to get healthier.  Wish me luck.

Four hours on I was attempting to do some vacuuming.   It meant picking up the body of the Dyson while using the cat fur attachment.  I got shooting pain in my back over my shoulder blades and I am now sitting down in sharp agony.  It is less than ideal.
