I've been lurking for awhile now, but recent events have inspired me to finally become a poster. I give you my permission to laugh at any of the following: I fell off the couch! Sadly, this is not the first nor the last time-though this time I managed to dislocate my shoulder and terrify my wife. She was outside letting the doggie tinkle and I was watching tv-when I dropped my pillow on the floor. I leaned over to pick it up and I lost all of my balance and ended up face first in the carpet (I'm sure I looked like I had snapped my neck) when she came back inside. After we restarted her heart, I quickly agreed to some ice therapy. I thought I had pulled something in my neck. We watched a movie and went to bed. She went to sleep, I stayed up-those of you who do not sleep well at night know what I am talking about. Around 2 AM I dared to go downstairs and get a glass of something to drink. I layed down on the couch to rest before climbing the mountian that is our stairs and it happed: my shoulder made this horrid sound that I now know was my dislocated shoulder finding the socket. I went back to bed and slept fine. This morning was another story: 2 doctors, some x-rays, a sling, and a juice smoothie (emotional support) later I realized that I had dislocated my shoulder. It seems that statistically, sometimes when one falls eventually one gets very injured. I was lucky to have made it this far, I fell from the most random places: the couch, toilet, sidewalk, shower, air beds, and even from just standing. So I just wanted to know about more falling stories so I don't feel so alone and if I am alone-feel free to laugh.
