Been wearing my shoes in the house with the Walgreens inserts the last few days. Much better. I will get some better inserts soon when I can justify spending the money. Always hard to spend on myself.

Well, I caught myself with my hands, so my hands are sore. Most of the weight fell on the right side, so the right arm and ribs on that side are sore. Must have bruised some ribs. The wonderful thing is that I did not throw out my back, and am able to move around pretty good.

i get chastised by my kids all the time for constantly denying myself the smallest gifts and purchases, while being overly generous toward others--putting myself last. i admit to being an extreme example of that. but chopper, what you are talking about falls into an entirely different category of spending--even i recognize and can appreciate that. get yourself the best shoe inserts money can buy--a pair for indoor, another for outdoor wear. you are avoiding unnecessary pain, looking out for your physical well-being, not indulging yourself in any frivolous or self-serving way. if you must, look at it as a gift you are giving to your family. because it is.

So glad you're up and moving, Chopper! You might want to consider getting an elastic rib belt, I've used one with bruised ribs, and it really helped.

And I agree with Vit.

I didn't slip on ice. I went into the underground garage to check the odometer on my car and tripped in the concrete hallway. I banged up the thumb and index finger on my right hand pretty good, banged up my right cheek bone, and split my lip. Ow.

Am I the only one who hasn't gotten hurt, even though I had wild vertigo and feeling like I was falling all the time???

Yeah, a couple of hours ago.

We would need at least two different kinds. One for Yanks and maybe South Africans, and another for people in countries with gov't health insurance and even then it might need different kinds for different countries/provinces.

I don't think I will need any this time around. I don't think finger or thumb are broken, no scrape on the cheek, and I've put antibiotic goo on my lip.
