My car would not start. I asked a neighbor if he could give me a jump; I figured it was my battery As it always happens in my apartment complex, several male neighbors arrived to help. After trying 3 different sets of battery chargers, it was determined that it must not be the battery. I called the towing company that my car garage uses, and they arrived quickly.
Now for the ‘uh-oh’ part- I planned on going with him to the car garage, and I fell out of the door area after trying to climb up to the seat. I fell back for the umpteenth time in my life and hit my head. The driver was shocked, picked me up, and walked me back to my apartment. I called the car garage and explained that I would not be coming. I thought I needed to be there to arrange for payment of the repair bill. The manager told me not to worry about that and get better, and he would add the towing to my repair bill.
A neighbor came down for a while to make sure I did not pass out or need help. I took extra pain meds and went to bed early. I feel fine today, except I am still a little dizzy. My short term memory is a little off, too. I am taking everything slow to keep from falling again.
I have been falling for over 50 years as an adult. I have always said it was good my mother gave me all those dance lessons, or I would be dead now.
