I got shiny new crutches yesterday that I have to use for 7 weeks, and I have a big batting, plaster, Ace wrap, and tape covered lower left leg. Interesting story, really, but I will leave that for my blog. But I want to hear of a time YOU were on crutches or were in a cast/splint. How did you injure yourself? Were you a kid or an adult? Can you laugh about it now that it's in the past (unless it is something you're still going through, in which case how are you coping?) If you've never been injured this way, what do you attribute that to?
Hi, well I have never been on crutches but I have been in a cast. My landlord, about four years ago at the time, had the kid that lived behind me dig a ditch that I was promised that the water company was to take care of for a water line. He neglected to tell me or put up any warnings. I came out carrying a blanket, didn't see it and down I went, shattered my left shoulder to point that I had to have a complete shoulder replacement done. Nah...I don't laugh because I can use my arm from my hand to my elbow but I cannot raise my arm to shoulder height or above my head. I compensate by bending over to comb my hair and do all my reaching with my right arm. I did, however, one heck of a lawyer.
