I dont have to think I already know sheeshhhhhhhh. I am constantly stumbling or tripping or running into something. One of my latest things is staying up to late and fighting sleep then ya know how you nod off and then startle awake and it makes your head snap back up? well for me I just have to take it that extra step and actually fall asleep to the point of having my face hit the computer desk. about a month ago it was my forehead,to be precise my eyebrow that hit the desk and I split that open and gave myself a nice black eye to go along with the cut. So then last night once again there is Karen dozing off and tipping this way and that till sure enough bammmm!!!!!!!!!! face hits the edge of the desk only this time it was my upper lip that hit which proceeded to cut through my lip in 3 places where my teeth are uneven and give me a huge fat lip. This morning after I woke up I called downstairs to Jay that the closest he was going to get to kissing Angelina Jolie was now and then showed him my mouth.
So ppl are starting to kinda give us wierd looks around town like Jays smacking the crap outta me on a regular basis with all my owies. And then to make matters worse,I walked over to Subway with Jayson tonight to check on sales and help one of his employee's who screwed up and computer. It's cold here tonight and still lots of slush and snow on the ground so I was extra careful walking there and back home and even held Jays hand on the slick parts. So I get and I crap you not,5 feet from our door and Jay was already up on the porch and I spin out of control and bam!!!!!!!!!!! hit the blacktop parking lot. Of course I start bawling and Jay looks back and yells OMGGGGGGGGGGG and runs over to me and he is helping me up and we figure out that I stepped on a lil piece of wood that came from a shattered railroad tie that had been lining our yard but a guy that plowed the parking lot the other day hit it and it busted into a ton of pieces. So I hit this wood and I guess I stumbled and as I was falling face first I put my arm out to protect my face cause that was headed for the above ground sprinkler that goes to our spinkler system and that would have hit my eye and instead that skimmed off the side of my head but I hit my right arm and left hand and omgggggggggg my left knee and leg right on the blacktop.
Jayson helped me up and inside the house where he cleaned up my bashed and bloody leg and hand. I will be a sight tomorrow cause now to go with my messed up lip I will be limping more than usual. I know that I have some damage from my strokes last year on my right side but since I got the fibromyalgia I am way more clumbsy then before. Do any of you guys have trouble with being off balance and being way more clumbsy since getting fibro? All I know is if this keeps up I am going to end up in the hospital or dead. Not sure how my leg and arm and hand will look tomorrow but I am betting pretty black and blue specially since my knee is all swelled up and besides the cut it is turning dark purple already. Everytime I tell my daughter or mom about my latest mishap they are always going omggggggggg woman!!!! So I can add this to also having a unhealed torn hip joint and a healed dislocated shoulder from last year lol. Got to laugh to keep from crying lol. Take care and have a safe and low pain night.
