"You're Going to be Bruised Tomorrow"... that's what he said.

I guess I should be grateful that my husband even got out of bed but I made enough noise I guess he felt obligated to, but he merely walked by my body on the floor, asked me what happened, said I would be bruised tomorrow, said at least nothing is broken, and then went back to bed. Didn't even help me to my feet. What did I do? I was uncomfortable so I decided to go up and put my jammies on. On my way back down the flight of 8 stairs made of hardwood and in my bare feet, I slipped on the first step and tumbled all the way down the stairs. I thought I would be able to stop myself after a couple of steps but I couldn't. My elbows felt bruised, and my butt. As time goes by more and more body parts are hurting... hand, back, shoulders, knee, foot. Yeah, I'm going to hurt tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about your fall and sorry to hear the your husband didn't even help you to your feet. That wasn't very nice of him. I fell down a flight of stairs one time and was badly bruised, especially my butt. It took so long to stop hurting. Take care of yourself and I hope you don't hurt too badly today.

My butt is what hurts the most. When I remarked to my husband about not helping me up he said something about letting me get up on my own time when I was ready. He was, after all, awakened from a sound sleep.

Falling down the stairs is always painful. I have perfected the falling up the stairs routine. Inevitably the causes bruised and skinned shins.

That's funny because when we talked about it this morning my husband asked me how I fell going up the stairs. Uh, I was going DOWN them. My younger daughter has always been good for a laugh with her falling up the stairs. You'd hear bang, bang.......... "I'm good!" LOL!

Tumbled isn't exactly the right word for it. It was more like skiing. I just don't know how bare feet could slide on hardwood like that. I'm not sure age has anything to do with it.

I have a strong feeling I will have a hard time even getting out of bed tomorrow. It was quite the fall.

Oh no, sorry to hear that... Would you need some tylenol, do you think?

Because of my fibromyalgia I take Tylenol 3 regularly. I just had to take it a little earlier last night.

@sishy7 Only two visible bruises, but still some pain in other places.
