Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.

Today, my world turned upside down.

Or rather I saw it upside down. 

Or maybe sideways. 

A little bass ackwards, as it were.

I had to run to the store today, and when I stepped out the front door, my foot landed on the edge of the rubber floor mat outside. I twisted my ankle and felt myself falling in slow motion.

And then I felt myself land.


Thankfully, I have plenty of padding in my rear end that it softened the blow a bit. Except I didn't just land on my behind. I landed on my elbow, and it's like it jarred everything in my neck and shoulder as they absorbed the shock of my fall. 

My left hip is a bit sore tonight, but it's my left shoulder and neck that hurt the most. 

Unfortunately, it means I didn't accomplish much of anything today. I'm hoping after a good night's sleep and some pain medicine, I'll feel well enough tomorrow to get something done. 

After all, I have much to do.


  1. Do NOT do this again.
    Trust me.

    I am a trained professional.

  2. Oh no! I hope you will feel better in the morning!!!

  3. OUCH.

    I'm with Ami. It's not like shampoo... no need to repeat.

  4. Oh no!! I hope you have a speedy recovery!
