    Having got back from a ride down to Stockbridge 61 miles, Mrs M wanted me to get some stuff up into the attic, I dislike going up there (no, nothing to do with spiders!) It depresses me, seeing all the stuff I have had to put up there, which really should have been skipped, stuff like boxes that items came in, old chairs, other bits of furniture, kids toys etc etc.

    Yesterday whilst getting stuff out to throw away I managed to lose my balance, I fell over and hit the left side of my torso on the top of the ladder, got an impressive foot long cut along my rib cage and feel like I've been in the ring with Amir Khan, had to get the paramedics out from the station as I was in such pain, managed to get down the ladder and collapse on the landing floor, as I felt like I was going to pass out.

    Mrs M was there with the frozen peas straight away. dosed up on pain killers now, very sore today.

    Go for a jog, that'll run off:ohmy:

    Hope you feel better through the day.

    I hate our loft too, I boarded it a few years ago, and had great plans for a Scalextric track! MrsMaggot had great plans for a home based municipal dump though:sad:

    Zoiks! Tea & sympathy from Tdr1nka Towers, I felt dizzy and a bit sick just reading that. Take things easy.

    Does Mrs M now feel suitably guilty after making you go up there after a big ride ?

    Hope you get plenty of tlc from Mrs M. I'll trade you my loft for yours btw. MY wife throws nothing including toy boxes on the basis that you get a better resale value when she sells them on. Needless to say I hate it.

    Don't believe anything is broken, just badly bruised ribs, bruising just starting to come out now, good job I had a day off work today (car in for MOT) <crosses everything crossable>.
    Thanks for all your kind comments.xx(

    Long hot baths should help to soothe the pain. Hope you get better soon and be thankful it wasn't a lot worse.

    It only hurts when you laugh.

    Alcohol administered internally tends to help.

    Sounds really nasty, I hope you feel better. Keep up the painkillers, frozen peas and keeping it still. Try and lie with that side of your chest elevated, if possible - it'll help all those nasty bruising and inflammation by-products to drain. Hot baths and alcohol should be avoided, but you knew that already, didn't you?
     
  12. You need a new bike M'Boy!
    That will make it better xx(
    Put that old Willier in the loft...
    Best wishes for a pleasantly achy recovery.

    Ouch indeed xx(.

    Had sore ribs myself in the past from riding into a tree. It's not a lot of fun. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
