Far be it from me –

You Won’t See Me Crying

on July 31, 2013

As a child I loved to sunbathe and the long hot summers were a joy to behold.  This summer’s heatwave has largely passed me by.  Late in June I was walking back from Ramsgate beach with Ken.  We were only a stone’s throw from home when I lost my footing and fell headlong.

Today I am back on my feet, but only just.  It’s too early for me to recount what happened in the aftermath of my fall but it did involve a paramedic, a kindly taxi driver and an early morning trip to the A&E department of the QEQM Hospital in Margate.

There’s a site meeting lined up next month to discuss my fall and its implications and I will report back.

    I am so sorry you had this accident. It is the unexpected kind like this that causes us the most irritation and problems down the road. We can only get annoyed with ourselves for not being more careful. i found, through many of these “accidents” that for some reason they were there to prevent us from an even larger catastrophe! So I think of it as some type of intervention and accept it as less than what could have been. My deepest hope is that it will not be something that will cause you any permanent or chronic pain in the future. To the strongest person I know, I only can wish you the best!
