Tripping over one’s own feet!

Last night I tripped and landed on my hands and knees on my concrete floor that is covered with a very thin carpet with no padding underneath. Once recovered from the shock of the fall I sat there in pain and not able to move at first. Eventually it started to become less painful, but I can’t get up off the floor without help. I was able to reach my walker and pulled it to me, but it wasn’t strong enough to pull up on so then I tried the heavy coffee table that was in the area, I drug myself over and then spent what felt like hours trying to pull myself up on the table. I finally felt myself get a grip and I pulled myself onto my terribly bruised knees and then pulled myself up trying not to let go. I made it eventually.

Now today I am in a  lot of pain and not just the knees from slamming into the floor, but the rest of my pain ridden body.

    So sorry to hear about the extra pain. I, too, can’t get up without something to pull up on. What a terrible addition to your other miseries! Have you ever tried Aspercreme with Lidocaine? It eases joint pain for me but right now it might help the battered knees!
