For many years dizzy spells have been a common challenge I face. I have been able to find ways to shorten the duration of these spells, such as sitting down immediately or focusing on a still object, which works about 75% of the time. Unfortunately, on Tuesday evening nothing was helping and when I “attempted” to sit down on the floor, I somehow ended up hitting my head, arms, and legs on a hard object.
I am not 100% sure what happened because I was in a daze, scared, and extremely confused. If I had to guess, I would say my head hit the corner edge of the nightstand and while trying to catch myself and prevent the fall, my arm was collateral damage and hit the nightstand as well. It is obvious my head hit something rather forcefully because I have a bruise and swelling on my forehead. Also, my bottom lip is swollen with a nasty laceration. I do have sore areas on my scalp, which made washing my hair very painful.
I had to work the day after this exciting event and was unable to focus. There was not one part of my body that did not hurt. It is not easy working when in the amount of pain, I was in, but I am new with the company and refused to call out sick. I mean, I work from home, so I do not have to go anywhere or see anyone, so why call out? The entire day, I had two speeds, slow and stop, which ended up being stop for much of the day! YES, this made for an extremely LONG day!
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week is going well and you are taking care of yourself. Never forget, YOU are important, and you cannot take care of others if you neglect your health. Yes, this is something I am awful with. I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
I’m sure that fall must have been very scary for you. I really am thankful you didn’t get hurt worse than you did. When it comes to our head we can never be too cautious. I realize most people think yes, I fell and am pretty banged up, but I’m fine. True, we may feel fine and tell us ourselves I’m walking and talking and therefore, I’m good. Yes, we can be fine one day and not here the next because of a significant brain injury that didn’t happen immediately. I just want everyone to know when it comes to our head always go to the hospital and be checked out. We only have one life and we need to take care of ourselves first and foremost. My intention is not to scare anyone but on the other hand I just want everyone to protect themselves. All my Love & Support, Mom
