    How my beautiful UV Synapse helped break a fall.

    Yesterday, I took buses and metro to do some errands.

    When I was almost at my destination, I stepped out of the sidewalk into what I though was a curb.

    It turned out to be an unmarked storm drain.

    I stepped in and the almost vertical slope of the storm drain, twisted my right ankle and caused me to fall on my right side.

    My beautiful UV Synapse, held on my left shoulder helped slow the fall down and as a result I am only bruised and stiff on my right side, especially from the ankle to to the thigh and my elbow.

    The 16oz Lifefactory Bottle in its pocket is intact.

    The Synapse not worse from wear. My Small Cafe Bag protected my phone held in its Pink Medium Clear Pouch between bus/metro timetables and a Small Organizer Pouch full of fabric material.


    Synapse = TARDIS Bodyguard!

    Oh no. Take care in resting and healing up. Spills like that can feel horrible for some time. I'm glad you weren't more seriously injured, thank goodness you had some cushion for you fall and you didn't hit your head.

    I am indeed in the U.S and will write a letter to the city in question to ask them to clearly mark storm drains.

    It turns out I have a tiny bump in my head.


    I believe I will be asking for Hannuka and Feel Better Gooddies.

    Some of them in Azalea

    Last year I had the bright idea to visit the mall after a bad snow and ice storm. Traveling to and fro was fine, but while walking out of the mall entrance to my car I slipped on a patch of ice and completely lost all control. I looked like a seizing octopus, flailing wildly on what felt like 2 minutes in my mind, but was less than a mili second. I did hit my head as well as twisted my back and ankle in my failed attempts to control myself and not hit my head. I share this to say, day 2 is worse than the day of/after and also to say pain killers are your friend.

    So sorry, Dorayme I hate to think of you being hurt. You didn''t have any kidlet with you did you?

    Well today was day 2 and I just napped when I felt like it, drank a lot of natural soda from my Lifefactory bottle and ate three time as much as I usually do.

    I also forced myself to walk back and forth and bend my right knee and move my right side.

    Sounds like you have a treatment plan that's going to work for you. Surprisingly, I was solo. I wasn't carrying anybody or holding anybody's hand. That would have been so much worse to have dragged or dropped my kid onto icy pavement.
