I fell again last night only this time I wasnt asleep. I was wide awake and got dizzy when I got up and hit the floor with all my weightand didnt get a chance to put my arms out to brake my fall. I hit on my chest on the left side and heard my ribs crack and felt a sering pain. I managed to pull myself up since Jay didnt hear me so didnt come to help me. It is so hard to get in and out of my bed and I have to take shallow breaths and move slowly.
I woke Jay when he got up at 5am and told him and he just said bummer and went to work. So Im home by myself contemplating what to do next. Im pretty sure I didnt punture anything since I can still breath. I did this one before when I fell but had alot of bruising on my back where I hit and so went I got them checked out. That time I hit a mini vac when I fell. I think I will try taking a shower and if the pain gets too bad I will have to figure out how to get to a medical/trama place just a few blocks from here.
I have got stop falling!!! this is so much bull!! what now Im going to have someone stay with me every minute. I am prone to falling cause my right leg tends to drop and drags and now I have verigo also. I am constantly tripping. darn these strokes!!! I feel like a cripple!! I am just so frustraited by all this. I dont have control of my body, my hands shake all the time and I drop stuff. I think part of this is the fibro since it is on both sides and I have left sided strokes. I got this old vest i wear and it is thrashed form my cigarettes falling on it ( I know its not good to smoke but im working on it). So now the question is do I even go to the hospital to have them say we cant do anything till you heal and waste all that time? I have been extremely lucky and have just had a few mild concustions and lots of bruising when I fall. Im waiting for a major brake or something. I can deal with broken ribs and that I know for certain cause I heard them crack.
I do appretiate all the replys!! and I can feel the love and it warms me so. Oh I havent had medicade call me because they already told me "sorry we dont cover that procedure" so without someone to say they will pay the hospital fee(and thats with the surgeon agreeing to do the surgery free!) its not going to happen. I guess this surgey is complicaited and lenghtly. I used to worry about going into surgery and how it would come out and now I have to worry if I even can get the surgery before the vessel blows. Its just not fair. I have 4 beautiful grandkids that I need to be here to love them and care for them. I have an elderly Mom that needs me and that with her being 78 years old I wonder how much time we have left and I dont need her worrying about me. Ok I ve gone to long again Chutzy I wont to tell you sorry for taking so much time in this forum,I know your limited with space and I promise to not take so much space.
Love and Hugs,
Mom of one gramma to 4 lover to One
