Anita Birt's Note book

I am surfacing slowly and recovering slowly from whacking my ribs. The morning after I had my accident I lay in bed wondering how to get out of bed without hurting my ribs more. I lay on my back and pondering the question.

How do I normally get out of bed? I managed to raise my legs and let them down slowly. I tried to swing them over the side of the bed - STOP! that hurt. What to do? I finally spoke firmly myself. "Anita, get out of bed." I did and it didn't hurt too much.

My question to you is this. How do you get out of bed in the morning, afternoon or evening? Legs over the side first. Sit up first. What? Loved to hear from you. We do so many things without thinking, I was forced to puzzle or the simple task of getting out of bed.

I'm not driving for another couple of weeks. Afraid I might have to make a sudden stop to avoid hitting a deer - oh yest, we have thousands of deer roaming the streets of Victoria. If I jerked suddenly I might damage my ribs again. I feel like an old crock but will survive.
