Not for those grossed out by blood!

This is SOOOOO not my week! First of all I get poison oak and have been itching like a crazy person. My hubby says I look like a crackhead scratching at my legs all the time! LOL Isn't he sweet?! He's just teasing but I probably do. Then I have ovaries that hate me for a few days and I'm in mega pain from that. Thankfully that part is over but then comes tonight. I've been taking benadryl since yesterday to ease the itchiness of my legs so I wasn't thinking I'd exercise because of how tired I've been feeling but got a sudden spurt of energy and decided to go for a walk. Ok, so my walk is about 3.5-4 miles and I'm about 3 blocks away from getting back home and decide that I'm feeling pretty good, have some good beats comin from my ipod and I think I'm gonna jog the rest of the way home for a little kick to my workout. Uh yeah...not a good idea! My legs were a little wobbly from the long walk and the ground was uneven so guess what a lovely combination that is...yeah, it ends with me falling very ungracefully to the hard ground! I'm not talking a little trip and oops...I'm talking full-on knees slamming to the ground, hands getting scraped up and coming milimeters away from smashing my face along the ground too. I had my phone in my hand because I didn't want it falling out of my pocket so it went flying and I always carry pepper spray in the other hand just in case and that went flying. Praise the Lord no one was driving/walking by and it was dark outside with only a few lights coming from inside some houses. That would have been the ultimate humiliation because I'm pretty sure I looked like an idiot! Then of course when you do something like that you get up really fast and act like it doesn't hurt nearly as bad as it does. I tried not to limp but really was about to burst into tears because the pain was so bad. I got in the house and lifted up my pant legs and saw this:

The picture doesn't even do it justice (thanks honey for having lame photog skills, LOL). My left leg hurts the worst because it looks like I landed right on a rock. It hurts to the bone and is throbbing like crazy. The right knee got tore up a lot more so there's a lot of blood. I'm already soaking through my big bandages (sorry for the gross out) and thankfully have a first aid kit in the van with more. I had 3 vicodin left in my medicine cabinet from when I had my daughter (who is now almost 14 months old) so I took one of those because the pain is so bad. I ended up crying pretty good for a few minutes which I hate. Makes me feel like a child but I had to let it out! The pain pill has finally kicked in but I can still feel the throbbing. Pretty sure I'm going to be sore for the next few days which really sucks because my goal this week was to get back into my exercise routine! Oh well...hopefully it heals quickly!!!

Now my hubby is running to the store to get me some more bandages for tomorrow...God love em', he's a great hubby! He helped clean me up and get me situated!!

Alright...I'm gonna go lay down and put these legs up! Sorry if the pic grossed you out!!! :)


  1. Oh, you poor thing. I hate when something like that happens. You feel foolish, but you shouldn't. Hope your legs, itch and everything else feels better soon.

  2. That's awful!! I hate it when I cry, too. Hang in there. This, too, shall pass. ;)

  3. Oh Christina, that looks so sore!! I hope you're feeling much better soon. Your hubby's a sweetheart to take such good care of you. As far as crying, sometimes it helps us feel better!!

    Hang in there...(((HUGS)))

  4. Oh my gosh!!!! Are you OK! You poor thing.

  5. Sorry about your accident. That sounds EXACTLY like somthing that would happen to me! I really hope you haven't damaged your knees. You'd better get a check up, just in case!
