|My friend's foot captured as I fell|
I was not badly hurt, a small cut on my eyelid, a very sore lip that I bit and bruised, and bled a lot but really just looked like a large cold sore. Grazed knees like a 5 year old in the playground, and a lovely bruise on my right shoulder. The only problem it gave me was drinking, I had to use a straw for a couple of days.
So if it wasn't bad, why am I writing about it here, and what has it to do with my diet?
Well 4 or 5 years ago I fell down some steps in Amsterdam, just 5, and landed on my outstretched arm. I broke my wrist in several places and ended up with pins, wires and bone grafts. It still gives me issues today, and I am convinced it was all the weight that landed on that hand. If I weighed the 55lb extra when I fell in Chicago, that may too have been more serious. Another reason why this is good.
