Scary close call

December 27, 2016 5:59pm CST
Well my shower chair bit the dust with me on it. Im ok though I was extremely shaking up because it could have been a lot worse. I was getting ready to rinse the shampoo out of my hair and all sudden I heard and felt something snap and down went one side of the chair and me as well. Im glad my husband got stuck with the graveyard shift doing security and moving trailers because of the holidays runs are a little slow other wise he'd barely be working. But Im glad he got put on this for this week because otherwise he wouldnt have been home and I would have had to call EMS to get me out of the tub. I guess I'll be getting a new chair this week.

That must have been scary. Glad you are okay and that your hubby was home when it happened.

First off, I'm glad you are okay. Secondly, I wish we were closer. I have one that you could have.

Thank you, awe that is very sweet of you. My husband said he is getting me a new one tomorrow and he said ever so often to check it to make sure nothing like that happens again. It was an old one Im surprise it lasted this long.

Im glad he was too. So do I. I've been a little sore but I dont know if it's from my fibromyalgia or from failing. He said if Im still like this after a couple of days he was going to take me in to have me check.

So am I. I would've been embarrassed for the EMS people to have to come in and help me even though I know they are trained and probably get calls of people falling in the shower all the time I'd still feel that way and knowing me probably carrying on about getting the shampoo out of my hair first.
