*bg* if i hurt myself badly it takes a moment for me to be able to speak without swearing.
i fell and really whacked my leg on the stairs at home recently, as in missed a step on an up/down landing and *WHACKED* (10 weeks later, still have a bump!)
i was sat on the landing , slightly stunned and trying to not teach my self new swearwords, when my husband and mum came up to me.
She asked what was wrong but i was biting my lip and still seeing stars whilst holding my leg.
then she said "you need to get up if you landed on your bum"
i managed to reply "leg" in a grittedteeththishurtstohighhalos kind of way
she then flounced off saying i shouldn't be so rude and she'll never bother again, whilst i still sat there, hubby helped me up and into our room then got me an icepack.
this is typical of her, she also likes to prod and poke at me until she gets a reaction and then tell me to "calm down"........
[insert un-ehell approved cursing here]
I've been better recently at walking away without reacting but i wish she would stop blaming me for reacting to her digs.
