I do wonder often who is looking at my blog. This is one reason I love comments. I remember each of the people that comment, and it lets me know that they care, or that they are nosey (LOL, I'm KIDDING!!!)! I can see when my blog is visited and where from. Often I can see the location and know who it was, and it makes my heart a little happy. And then there are others. Like, take for instance, the person that regularly visits from Russia. OH how I wonder who it is! Just comment already?!!! It's-a-makin-me-crazy! LOL!
Ok, so now for what I came here to write before I went off on a tangent! LOL!
I'm hurt. If you follow me on twitter, you know all too well what I am talking about, because I have bitched and moaned quite a bit about this, but other then my twitter friends I haven't really told anyone. Now don't you feel special if you had the privilege of reading all of my complaints? Well, you SHOULD! :P
So what happened? Well, if you know me and how graceful I am, this will come as a shock (shut up), but I fell. And when I say I fell, I mean I fell good and hard. I'm nothing if not an over achiever!!!
Just over 2 weeks ago, I was at the Albertson's grocery store near my work for a quick errand on my lunch. I walked in, and pretty much immediately hit the floor. There was a wet spot on the floor, and of course I was lucky enough to be the one to discover it, because I'm just all sorts of awesome like that!!
When I fell, yes, it hurt really bad on the knee that I landed on, but I really just felt stupid for having fallen, so when I looked around and saw that nobody had even noticed, I got up, dusted myself off, and limped about my business. I was in a hurry, and besides, it was probably nothing, right? Not to mention the fact that I felt like a total idiot, and being the nonconfrontational, doesn't like to be noticed kinda gal that I am, I didn't want to raise a fuss.
Well, by the time I got back to the office, it looked like this...
I elevated it, iced it, etc, but it kept getting worse. Then I started to worry that something could be broken, but decided to wait and see.
So the day ended, I hobbled to my car and realized I could hardly get in the car because I physically could not bend it. Shit. So I got myself home where I tried to go about my business but couldn't. Then the aleve started to wear off, and what I thought had been hurting terribly became even worse. I called all of the urgent care's around and they had all closed at 7pm!!! So Joe and I discussed it and I went to the ER to get it checked because the pain really was unbearable and I was getting worried that I might have broken something.
Here's how it looked when I was at the ER...
Well here we are, 16 days later, my knee is still very swollen (and hot to the touch), and that bruise? OMG how it has traveled down my leg as has the pain!!!
