If you are wondering how I have been able to read so many books in the past month, it is because I injured myself three weeks ago. Laying on a heating pad recovering is perfect for reading. When coming down from the stairs, my brand new sock hit the slick wooden floor and I went airborne crashing down into the stairs. I hit my head and my left lower back. My head was fine. My back wasn’t.
Below is an artist rendering.
Even though I am feeling much better, I am still in some pain. Driving (left turns) and getting out of the car is where I feel the most pain. Thankfully, I have recovered enough that I can do pull-ups, push-ups and even walk for miles.

Sorry to hear about your tumble. Get better!
The artistic rendering was riveting and disturbing. It felt so real that my own back started to hurt!

I am making a mental note here: New socks + wooden floor = risky.

Get well soon!

Note for MAS on new apartment: No stairs! 🙂

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!

The artist rendering wouldn’t hold up in court, especially when combined with your description. You said you hit your lower left back but the image clearly shows a blow to the left shoulder. And the rendering does not show this mysterious “sock”.
Keep reading and walking, and feel better soon. Now that the summer is over, it’s time for my return to coffee meetups.
