I um... had an accident this morning. I've started running again, a little, and when I'm up early enough I will go for a run around the village before breakfast. This morning I was heading out of my gate, had my mp3 player on, turned round to make sure the gate was shut behind me and the next thing I know I was on the ground in pain and there was a cyclist standing over me. He'd been on the path thinking there was no one else up at that hour and hadn't seen me at all.

I ended up getting taken to casualty 'cause my neighbours wouldn't let me not go, and it turns out I have a cracked rib and a lot of bruising. Which means I can't do much physical stuff and if there's any sharp pains I've to head straight into the hospital in case the rib grazes my lung.

This hurts.

A lot.

I'm fine, or I will be, and the guy on the bike doesn't have a scratch on him and is insanely apologetic, but wow this hurts right now! So pedestrians? Let this be a lesson to you... actually, I have no idea what the lesson is - don't have headphones on at 6am in case a mad bike rider is on the path?

It's weird how much this affects everything I'm doing now - sitting still for any length of time hurts, moving around hurts, sleeping hurts... I just can't win can I?

Ouch! Get well soon, Sho :)

Cheers - it's getting easier to cope with but it's still sore as hell!

It's getting easier to live with, I don't know if that means it's less sore or if I'm getting used to it - but I'll take it either way!

I'm getting there - it's tough to sit down for any length of time so work today is going to be... interesting anyway!

Ouch. *hugs*

I apologise on behalf of all cyclists. :(

Hope you make a swift recovery.

As a sometimes cyclist myself there's nothing to apologise for. Idiots who ride on pavements with no considerration for pedestrians on the other hand... :)

It's getting easier to deal with - whether that means it's getting better or not I don't know, but I'll take it!

Oh no! I am just so glad you're okay! That cyclist had best be paying your bills!

I'll be okay, and the wonders of the NHS mean I don't have bills to pay. Now if I could just get through this 'chat' I'm going to be having with my boss about why I called in sick on Friday from the back of my neighbours car as they were driving me to the hospital... :)

*fingers crossed*

Actually most of the bruising is now tea coloured so that's a good sign I guess, and the pain in my side is dealable-with although it's pretty much a constant. I'll get there though...

Yikes! *pets you* I feel your pain. I almost got hit by a car once - and no, I don't mean a close call, I mean the car had to swerve to avoid me and ran off the road, and I threw myself backwards and landed on my elbow....it's dangerous to be a pedestrian, no?
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: btvs//xander's hand hurts - mewhiskyinmind on March 26th, 2007 07:26 am (UTC)
Yikes! Seems like sometimes it's dangerous to even step outside the front door - but then there's that statistic where most accidents happen in the home... I should live in a bubble. *nods*

*g*

*lol* Sure would be safer, no? Or at least wrap ourselves in bubble wrap before going out. ;)

Hope you are okay .

Cheers - I'm coping with it now, it still hurts like the blazes but it seems to either be getting better or my tolerance levels are going up...
