My Injury

One fall and it all happened

One fall and it all begun

From lying in the hall                

To tears like rapids

One fall and it took it all.

 

One moment and my future was in jeoprady

One moment and fifteen seconds numb

A knee was thrust in my sternum

60 years paying finger and thumb.

 

One vertibra. took 300 pills

Damaged muscles and my stomach was done

all could have been much easier

if I had never met that woman.

 

24 hours and I sit in pain

5 minutes and I crack my bones

5 years so far and thousands later

I will never, in my body, be at home.

That you have the courage to write about this is courageous in itself. And to include what you are going through now makes it even more real to us. I wish you the best in your recovery.

Synopsis
I almost broke my neck 5 years ago by falling from a shoulder stand in yoga. I have been seeing a physiotherapist pretty much since then. I am constantly in pain, it is bare-able most of the time. It came with a lot of problems for me and it still causes a lot of trouble in my working and person life. Recently i have become quite angry about it, so i wrote this to get it out
