Have you ever fallen down the stairs?

I have fallen down the stairs whe I was really little. I think I was around five or six when it happened. I remeber it was around Halloween time and I was getting some Halloween decorations from the basement. I was walking down when I missed a step and went tumbling down. Unfortunatly there was a bed frame at the end of the stairs. I was not wearing any shoes and my toe got cut on that frame from the fall. My cut was bad enough I needed stitches on my toe. I was not happy about that. That was the first time I ever had to get stitches. I remember crying and screaming because I did not want to stitches.

My worst fall ever happened about 3 years ago. I was going down the basement and on my hands were leftover foods in styro boxes. On the second or third step, I just slipped somehow and fell on my butt down to the foot of the stairs. My butt hurt so much and I thought I injured the bone just up my butt coz it hurt so much as well. I couldn't sit well for a couple of weeks. I've had a chiropractor check it who recommended an xray, and fortunately, no bones were damaged. I didn't believe it though coz after a few months, I still couldn't sit well for long periods. But thankfully, I seem to be ok now.

I have an even better one-I fell going UP the stairs! I was running up them and missed a step. I ended up spraining my ankle. It hurt so bad! I was about 23 when this happened, and friends were over. Instead of going out the evening we spent the night in the ER! If I had not tried to catch myself I probably wouldnt have hurt myself as bad.
