Not a good start to the morning

I feel again this morning. This time on the icy sidewalk on my walk to work. I was being careful not to fall because everything was a sheet of ice this morning with the freezing rain we were having. Then all of a sudden my feet just slipped from under me and I went down and hit my head and my upper back onto the concrete. Of course I landed in a puddle cause everything was wet so not only do I have a sore, bruised knee but I also have a sore back and a headache. Plus my pants are all wet..lol Not a good day. Things have got to get better from here. Hope your day is going better then mine :(

Yes I think so. We have been spoiled with good weather all winter so I have been putting off getting new boots but I think I would have to get some.

Oh Laurel, I'm so sorry that your day began like that. I hope that you dry out soon and that the aches in your back and head stop soon.

@Juliaacv Thanks I did. I am a bit sore this morning but not too bad. I was still able to get my morning walk in but at a slower pace.

Did you go to the hospital? That is not easy I am sure your going to be fine in time. I am sorry you need to work in that weather. I have not walked on ice in years. But when I fell I cried for days. it hurt like hell.

Oh dear. That is an awful way to start your day. Sometimes no matter how careful you are you end up on the ground. Hope it all feels better as the day goes on.

@Happy2BeMe Two teachers at school, each trying to hang onto each other, had terrible falls on the ice. The one teacher had to have surgery on her leg due to the fall and the other had a broken wrist. Our poor janitor was so upset. He thought he had salted the area of the parking lot thoroughly.

@Corbin5 That would have been awful for all of them. You can do so much damage with a fall. I am nervous now when I am out walking.

I understand it quite well as I ever walked on such kind of road when we had travel before. I felt nervous to walk as I was afraid to fall down. I held my husband firmly, or I would fall down easily.
