One of the things I am a-feared of in winter happened this morning - I slipped on invisible ice (I was looking at the ground, and it was identical to everything else!) and hit my hands.  Fortunately, I twisted, and took most of the weight on my hip (which is why I'm able to type this)*, but I gave both hands a right smack.

So, no smart clever post today.  I haz a hurt.

*(Also, I have drugs.  Sweet, sweet drugs.)

I'm so sorry, I hope you feel better soon......I guess there's no consolation in the fact that you at least hit the Ice as hard as it hit you?

When Isaac was less then a month old I slipped on black ice while holding him as I stepped off of a curb, since I was too afraid to let go of him at all, I just went straight onto my back (which is my ouchie place) right on the edge of the curb, I thought I was gonna die.

Aaaaah! Time stops as you lie there, with nothing in your head but "Ow. Owowowowowowowowowwwwwwwww".

I'm totally out of it, but it was less painful to go and sit in my office than turn around and go home. I have heat patches all over my arms and my shoulders are killing me from the twisting and tensing. :(

I hope the pain phase is short!

Ouch! I hates the evil black ice, I do. After all, it's why I have a plate and screws in my ankle.

Feel better soon. Ice and sweet drugs!

Meep. Black ice is evil. I hope the hurt goes away soon. A few years back I fell over three times in a row on the ice, on my knees every time. Much owies.

*empathizing with your pain level from past experience*

Hope that your hands are feeling better soon...

I did a spalt
on New Year's Eve (not on ice, but in the mud)... I handed front first (thankfully my face was spared, but the rest of my front wasn't). I laid there panting like a dog all the while white hot pain stabbed through my brain. When I was finally able to roll over onto my back, all i could think about was a "beached whale". I had to crawl on my hands and needs out of the mud to the actual parking lot (it was only a few "steps" but by the time it was done, I was covered in ice cold mud from almost head to toe. My ribs, back and knees hurt for days afterwards. (I already had back pain to start with.. this did NOT help any).

I am glad you have good drugs! Take care!

Oh Noes!
Hope there is no lasting additional pain due to this. Call if you need anything.

I remember a year ago shortly after we got Ladybug when I fell on a icy patch while taking her for a walk. Landing on knees and wrists sucked, as did the bruising and soreness that followed. I pout at your stoopid ice patch and wish it away.
