In the photo above you’ll see the slick spot where I fell this morning at the gas pumps of my local Cumberland Farms. I landed flat on my back in an instant. Barely had time to brace my self from it. It hurt like a mother f’ker. I laid there for a minute on my back trying to realize what had happened & if I had broke anything. Legs worked, arms worked, neck works. I sat up and some lady asked if I was ok & needed help. I didn’t need help, I did take my time to get up though making sure that nothing popped or rubbed wrong as I moved to right myself. I’m almost 40 and know that one wrong fall and I could bust something up, not good. I pulled my self together & walked in to the store and basically said; “I just landed flat on my ass out there due to the ice.” and then stormed to the back of the store. I washed my hand in the little sink & checked out how bad the road rash was on the heal of my palm. Not bad, a little less skin but no major blood. Hurts like a mo’fo though. Checked my elbows and made sure they weren’t dug up, & my coat to see if there were holes in it. Nope. My ass was wet & my neck & head hurt, along with my left arm & right leg, knee, & ankle. I filed a report with the store and proceeded to work after I pumped my gas. And I did manage to get my coffee also. The store employee said they’re not responsible for sanding/salting the parking lot or pump area, that’s a 3rd party. Who ever is suppose to sand/salt the ice slicks needs to get on top of their shit! I understand that it’s not snowy or rainy but it was warm enough yesterday to cause the snow/ice on the top of the awning to melt & drip off on to the ground & then freeze last night. Even those little spots need to be taken care of. If I had fallen on a private citizens walk way because it was icy I could sue their ass. Which is why i sand my walkway to my apartment & the steps.
As the day goes on I become more & more sore. A wonderful lovely day – NOT! I’m uncomfortable sitting & standing. I just visited my Chiropractor on Friday and I’m afraid I’ll need to go back sooner than expected. I’m not sure if I should call my Dr. or the Chiro and discuss the fall with them or not.
This is on top of having a horrid dream with my ex-boyfriend SM in it harassing & attacking me. And then oversleeping & getting up late to the smell of weed & smoke wafting through the forced hot air ducts. Gave me a lovely headache. On Wednesday I couldn’t wait for the day to be done. I hate wishing away my days but it’s true. And today, I really cannot wait for it to be done as well.
