I underestimated how hard it was going to be to go back to work.
Not in the oh I wish I was still on holidays sense, but in the I’m still dizzy when I move fast sense.
So, of course it didn’t help when I gave myself a mild concussion yesterday falling into a fire extinguisher that was mounted onto the wall.
I think I may need to move permanently into a bubble, don’t you think?
Thankfully, my boss was standing right next to me, otherwise I’m fairly certain she wouldn’t have believe me. Also, it’s nice to have someone else fetch you ice.
I went to throw something in the garbage, leaning slightly, and then bam! fell sideways into the wall, unfortunately hitting the bottom of the extinguisher on the way down.
And let me tell you, those things hurt. A lot.
My head is still radiating heat and it happened yesterday at noon. A bruise/bump is starting to poke through, good thing I have a penchant for hats. On the plus side, it didn’t make me immediately dizzy. I should be thankful I hit the right side of my head, not the left. My left ear is just starting to behave again, don’t need another relapse.
Made any fumbles this year?
Hopefully I’m not the only one…
