My New Best Friends
Apparently it had been too long.Â Three years doesn’t seem too long to me, but my body thought so.Â I thought staying out of the Emergency Room was a great idea.Â My body and the stairs disagreed.
I’m not really sure what happened.Â I think I missed a step, and that changed everything.Â I went from being upright to rolling around on the ground.Â I went from normal pain to intense and localized pain.Â I went from not thinking about crying to hoping tears would bring relief.Â I also added a few leaves to my hair.
I spent a little more than 4 hours in the ER I avoided my entire growing up years.Â I saw a doctor for about 2 minutes and a nurse twice for about the same amount of time.Â I have an air cast/splint and two crutches to show for it.
Getting through a few airports tomorrow is going to be a new adventure.
