I have been taking a little blogging break from posting and reading blogs. Reason is that I haven’t been well since Wednesday.
Wednesday evening I was upstairs and ready to go downstairs. I made a wrong step and fell down the stairs and landed halfway down the stairs. I missed a couple of steps and landed mostly on my left bottom. I couldn’t move for a few minutes. Needless to say I did nothing more than lie down on the couch that evening and go to bed early. The entire left of my lower body hurted and so did my lower back.
When I got up on Thursday morning I seemed fine, except from the bruises on my left butt and I took a shower. There something happened that has never happened to me before: I got a panick attack. I couldn’t breathe and it felt I was going to faint. I got out of the shower as soon as possible and got down with my head between my knees and tried to get it together. I sat down on the couch for an hour and finally got dressed and went to work. At first I seemed to be fine but in the afternoon it got worse. I can’t explain what I felt, I still don’t know what was happening but I went home and was in bed by 3 pm. I got up at 5 pm and went back at 7 pm till 9 pm. At 11 pm I went to bed again and slept all night.
The next days I still wasn’t feeling well. My bowel problems returned, I had no appetite (I hardly have eaten the past days) but at the end of the day my stomach felt like I had a huge dinner.
Again, I don’t know if my problems of the past days have something to do with my falling or that it’s a coincidence this happened but I can’t explain. Today it seems to be better, I had a light breakfast this morning.
I haven’t been working out the past days and I didn’t take long walks with Bella. But I need to start moving again because that’s better for the recovery of my butt. I tried a Chalean Extreme workout this morning but had to cut it short but at least I tried. Later today I will take Bella for a longer walk again. And I’ll try running again tomorrow.
It was a stupid accident and it could have been worse because I could have broken something or fall on my head. It’s only a bruised butt and painful lower back.
So in a nutshell what happened to me the past couple of days. I know I would be positive on my blog but hey, I didn’t do this on purpose
