I fell yesterday! Head first to the ground. Fell on my knees mostly-they hurt. I got so shook up I almost passed out.

We stopped for dinner on our way home from a Tball game. A little burger place on the way home. We had just finished dinner and its attached to a Carvel, so I headed in for a soft serve to share with Em. We were outside and I was walking and bam I fell. There was a step, I guess I missed it but I don't really know. I felt like I was going to fall and break something or hit my face. I just sat there dazed and looked toward Jim and he was just sitting there looking in my direction...I was like "Jim" but I don't think I said it very loudly. I was like why isn't he running to help me? There was a table in between us, so he didn't see me. All of a sudden there were 3 men -who did see- there to help me up. I was still looking at Jim like help...but still he didn't see me. I walked over and was like why didn't you help me, I fell. He was like are you ok? I was NO I FELL!! He didn't see it at all, he felt so bad. It was just so weird I was so shaky and in pain. I walked over to the car and when I sat down my knees were KILLING me, I just wanted to cry...from pain and embarrassment. Then I was getting all hot and shaky and my hearing was "muffled"...I knew I was getting ready to faint. Jim ran to get me some ice for my neck-helps with the fainting.

I am ok. Some pain in my knees and still a little shaken up. But fine. But I still really don't know what happened. It was just a strange experience.

You poor thing! I'm so glad you are feeling better. But that sucks! Are you knees scraped up now? Thank goodness for nice bystanders running to your aid.

I saw a woman fall flat on her back one time in the icy parking lot of a store and me and two other people ran over. This poor woman was sobbing and obviously in pain so the other two helped her up while I gathered up her keys and wallet which had gone flying. But I COULD NOT BELIEVE how many people, close by, just watched it all indifferently. What if that was THEIR mom/wife/daughter/whoever laying there? Wouldn't they want someone to help her?

Oh my! I'm so glad you are OK!

My husband and I were just talking about falling as an adult and what a strange feeling it is. As a kid, you trip and fall on a daily basis, but as an adult, it's quite humbling!
