to teach you that
... good health is very important
... when in pain, reading and writing are pretty much out
... sleeping through pain is an excellent excellent idea
... God is good for so very many reasons, the chief of which is that you didn't injure yourself even more
... when you are rolling around in pain, you can somehow STILL feel embarrassed
... the humour of the situation is only available in retrospect
... when people remember you and ask after you or visit (you guys know who you are), no matter how much you want alone time to lick your wounds, it's still really really lovely and gives you all kinds of warm fuzzies.
... music brings pain relief.
Took a minor tumble last week and landed on my butt and it turns out I've gone and cracked my coccyx. What's that you say? It's the tailbone, less nicely put, the butt bone.
It was horribly embarrassing and even more horribly painful. I didn't hit my head at all and I saw stars - which I think means that I almost blacked out from pain. Not fun.
But I'm very grateful for people who texted/emailed/left messages for me/came to see me :) Thanks guys!
Feeling very loved is definitely a pre-requisite for getting better methinks - how else to explain the speedy recovery? Lots and lots better now but won't be able to actually do anything above slo--o--ow motion walking (I practically fell asleep on the way to the loo) and lying around for awhile.
