i fell and i cant get up

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Awhile back i fell and spent 14 hrs on the floor. Boy did that hit home. You have no idea what goes thru your mind. ,You cant run away, you have to face reality. This weight is gonna kill me and if this is how i have to live " well this is not living" So the next time you want to get off your program, well think of this " by being so overweight, its like being in prison and you got to break free. You hold the key"

    That must have been a really frightening experience for you. Thank you for being so brave and sharing that moment with the Spark community. I'm glad you're alright now.

    There are negative events that change our lives. I'm glad you're turning yours into a positive.

    Happened several Springs ago, was chilly and no one around
    the snakes & bugs were the worse part of that fall.
    Last year i fell outside my cell clipped to my shirt
    Glasses flew 20 feet cell flew 10 feet.
    So a plan to use my cell as a security is out the window,
    I could not see to find it.
    Darkness makes me so dizzy
    plus the 4 shots of Morphine I'd received in the ER
    TG my husband came back outside
    He found my phone,
    I called my son, he came with his teenage daughter
    the three of them got me up,
    We went back to the ER.

    Scary stuff. I know I need to get this weight off, but I'm not thinking about that when I binge. This is a good reminder of what I need to be thinking about!
    I have a friend who went on 18 different medications in 1 year. When you mistreat your body for so long, it can catch up all at once.

    Wow, I'm glad you are okay.

    My first thought when I read the title as a former EMT is this: get a lifeline meter to wear!

    I have no arm strength due to a muscle disease, and if I fall I am down til someone picks me up.

    Please be safe.
