Bonked my head this morning...

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

So this morning I wake up to my phone alarm going off at 5:45 - an early alarm leftover from when I was travellng for work last week. I didn't want it to wake up the Mr, so I jump out of bed like a madwoman, and run to the living room - only I don't make it. See, my room at 5:45am is pitch black, and since I was still half asleep and running...well...I ran into the edge of the door. Hard. It actually knocked me back - think of a cartoon or 3 Stooges movie. In fact, it knocked me back so hard I fell down, hit my dresser, thought that was about to tip over, so I covered my head, which was good, because the dresser wobbled enough to send down everything on top of it.

Needless to say - my plans to not walk up the Mr were shot. I quickly developed a knot the size of half a golf ball, and started crying hysterically. Mostly because I was a little loopy, and the whole thing had just scared the crap out of me - plus the knot on my forehead freaked me out quite a bit. DH assured me I was okay - the front of the skull is the strongest part and goose egg knots are pretty common in kids. I called the Dr and they gave me some symptoms to look out for. I have had kind of a dull headache all day long, but the knot has gone down to about a 1/4 of the size it was. It's super tender to the touch.

It is actually pretty funny thinking about it right now - but oh man it hurt. And boy do I feel like an idiot. DH made me stay home from work - I was a hot mess after crying - so calling my team to tell them why I'd be out was pretty embarassing. Oh - and I also tweaked my ankle, so I've had a brace on all day. It swelled a tad, but not to much. Looks like I'll be taking it easy on the treadmill for the next several days.

So - that was MY day... Anyone else do anything stupid like that ever?

    OWWIE!! emoticon Geez! Take it EASY, would ya!?!? lol

    I once broke my hand answering the phone. I also fell UP the steps and broke 3 toes. I also slid under an ice machine at work and broke my knee. Have been poked in the eye with a piece of paper (and a nail file). Yes, I have hurt myself in weird ways. Sadly, you are not alone! LOL

    Oh my goodness... what a rude awakening! I hope your head and ankle feel better soon.

    I do crazy stuff like that all the time. I'm an accident waiting to happen most days. My stepdad gave me the nickname "Grace" when I was younger because I was so graceful... not!

    One time I was leaving Blockbuster with my roommate at the time. I ran into the window instead of walking through the door. I did bounce, I didn't fall, but I did have an audience.

    What a morning! It is great that you have a supportive husband that took care of you through this predicament. emoticon heal up!
