Never take it for granted

Even though I've hit my 40th decade I consider myself young youthful active capable strong but having an injury occur to me has put me on the back foot immensely. Slipped on staircase sent me into a whole new world of immense pain shock and out of control worry that I had damaged my spine.

A wonderful concoction of Really Strong Drugs allowed the ambos to get me to hospital where the miracle of IV morphine kept me in lala land for awhile. V v thankful that no injury occured except for a very technical and explicit diagnosis of 'a jarring of muscle'

Home in 2 days left me in pain vomiting and frozen in fear of pain for moving til the recliner chair arrived that I've being living in for past 2weeks.

I think I'm getting better. Yesterday was a Black Day for me but today is brighter.

My family have taken such great care of me and so many friends have been so caring that it puts me to shame that I know I don't show the care of others that they have shown to me

Never take your family your friends your health and your stair railing for granted. You need them all !!

Oh Bron - how awful for you but how typical that you use your misfortune to remind the rest of us how lucky we are. I truly hope you come through this soon.

Sounds bloody awful what's happened! No, never take anything or anyone for granted - and isn't it awful that something like this has to happen before we realise it?

Hope you continue to improve, and that the black days become less frequent. I'll be thinking of you!
