It was bound to happen sooner or later. This time it happened in public.
Connie and I had just started walking. We were going to do some exercise before we watched a movie. It happened as we had just crossed the street. We went to get on the sidewalk and, for some reason, I failed to step up. It happened in an instant. One minute I was walking with purpose. The next I was face down on the sidewalk.
A kind motorist stopped and asked if we needed any help. I think we said, “no, we got this.”
Falling wasn’t the worst part of it. The worst part was the next 30-minutes where I acted like it didn’t bother me. I was hyper-sensitive about where I stepped and how.
How can you get better if you don’t let anyone else know what you’re feeling. It’s the hidden disabilities that can be the worst.
We finished the 3-mile walk and went to the movie theater. Connie got her Diet Coke and bucket of popcorn. I got a Coke with a box (that was 25% full) of Butterfingers.
