just now, when i stepped out of the door, i almost fell down. i finally caught the door, but still hurt my right hand on the door, it scratched my skin on the elbow, and aching very much now. i know i fell down a lot when as a child, and also would cry then. but when i grow up, seldom fall donw, cause very careful when walking. and even if hurt somewhere, also wont cry any more. just with the hurt in the heart. how abt u, do u still remember ur falling down? did it hurt u anywhere? did u cry or blame sth?

why he pushed u, really a little rude, i think. be careful next time. even when u are talking on the phone, or sending msg with the phone on the way,...that's easier to fall down.

I am clumsy. I have fallen down numerous places, on icy parking lots, in hallways, my kitchen, I once feel up stairs. I now consider it a talent.

hehe...talent is colorful too. i just feel bluehibiscus must be too attentive to other things when on the way. or just were doing sth others then. such as, when on the stairs, if u send msg with the phone, then easily to fall down. i once saw it happened to my aunt. and from then on, she is very careful when on the stairs, or control to send until on the floor.

Are you a tall person? A tall person has a higher chances of falling compared to a short person like me. I seldom fall as I am so low down on earth, I can hardly trip! Take care and be extra careful next time around kay?

i'm not a tall person. i do hope i'm a tall one. i'm imagining if a tall person fall down, what funny it will be. last time i fell down, cause maybe the floor was very slippery, maybe some oil there, i guess. just be careful in the floor next time.hehe...

Hi yolanda, this happened to my only last year when I was walking into university. I tripped on a step and fell to my knees. There were some students nearby who rushed to my aid. However, I didn't need assistance, and only hurt my knee, and dented my pride a little.

luckily not hurt heavily. fall down in public is really a little of an embarrassing thing, dont u think it is too? but if i see a teacher fall down in school, i only will think he/she must be thinking of the teaching or sth like so too much, and focus on it too much, so fall down. i wont laugh at it, but give more admire.

Hello again yolanda, Yes I was a little embarrassed, and to say, "I dented my prode" means I was embarrassed.

Ouch! That must be hurt. Lucky it's only a scratched skin. I've fallen down a few times, but let me share a couple. The first one when I was about 17 years ago. I was wearing high heels, the type with thick heels*I don't know what it's called*. There was a drain and the ground was uneven. So, when I lifted my leg to cross over to the other side, I lost control and fell down on my knees. I wasn't hurt, but I thought it was funny and my younger sis was laughing like crazy hehe... It's quite embarrassing because I saw a tourist was standing a few meters away from us and he was holding a video cam! Blame it on the heels haha... The second one was approximately 3 to 4 years ago. I had just finished working and hubby*at that time we weren't married yet* was waiting in the car. I didn't know what went wrong, I slipped and fell. This time it was painful, but I just got up quickly and acted like nothing happened when it was actually hurting. When I was already inside the car, I told hubby about it. He said that's explained why he saw me from the rear view mirror, but in a second I was nowhere to be seen and suddenly I was already at the side of the car. There's nothing to blame, it just happened. Luckily, I didn't break my leg or something*touch wood*. So, to both of us and everybody, be careful and watch our steps.

Ha ha... it was painful at that time, but I was surprised myself that I could get up so fast without hubby even noticing it. He did see me coming out from the building, but he wondered why I was suddenly 'invisible'!! You know what, I was thinking what if I ended up in the funniest video show at the tourist's country?? Anyway, thanks for the BR, Yolanda! I really appreciate it.

Yes, I have fell down just about 12 weeks ago. There was park of the cement broken at this restaurant I go to. I have been there plenty of times. One day I just got to close the broken part and was off balance. I fell to the ground. I used by hand to brace myself when I hit the ground. I was sore for weeks. Even though we are adults does not mean we can not have an accident.

hi, friend i believe you are well now, right? be careful next time, the same to myself. really so, accident cant be avoid totally by anyone. but we can be careful enough to reduce it.

Hi yolanda, I'm glad to know that you never fell down finally. I believe the slight scratch on your elbow skin will heal very soon. From the description above, seems that you are very brave. Yeah, you never cry and could tolerate the pain when having hurt on your body I did fell down few years back on the street. Someone stepped on the back of my sandal when I walked out from a bookshop. I fell down out of my control. The floor of the street was quite rough. Both my knees were bleeding then. I bear the pain and took out the tissue paper to stop the bleeding. The passerby left the spot hurriedly after expressing his apology then. Since he had apologized for his fault, why should I still blamed him for that. I did have to watch carefully when stepping out from the outlet then. Happy posting

hi, lkbooi. i think u'r very brave and tolerant, though if i were you then, i also wouldnt blame the passerby either. but now that u were before him, in fact i do think the reason is from him. just as said we cant avoid the accident, only to reduce it as possible as we can.hehe...

When I was new in free running I fell down all the time. But now that it's been years I don't remember falling down since my last serious injury.

I have fallen often both as a child and as an adult. I think the worst fall was when I was delivering pizzas and I tripped on a broken sidewalk that I couldn't see. I wound up in a push-up position and it really hurt my upper back area. I won't say that I don't cry, but I sure do curse because I hate that it happened. I tend to be clumsy so I tend to hold on when going down stairs and I try to take my time because I have fallen on stairs more than once. I hope you are all right.
