Last night I was washing my hair in the shower (well it's a shower head over a bath like most rental houses) and slipped and lost my balance. I fell backwards out of the bath and landed smack on the tiles. Now I have a big lump on the back of my head and various bruises. Lots of aching and probably mild concussion. The thing that scared me was that my half sister died after hitting her head in the shower. She went to bed after wards and never woke up. It was a long time ago when I was 14, but I remember my mother having to make the decision to turn the life support machine off.
Chris told me to just ignore the lump or go to hospital. Then he went off to see a band with his mates while I sat on the couch with an icepack on my head. I'm used to migraines so this wasn't all that different, just a different location in my head.
My head is still really sore and I'm a bit woozy so I decided not to go to yoga this morning. Chris told me I was just making excuses and that yoga would make my head feel better. Somehow I doubt it. I've had some sleep and as it was very hot today we went to the pub for antipasto and cider. We've got a neighbourhood party tonight 5 mins walk away so I might pop along briefly to be polite.
