Oh the humanity...

So this morning I left our building to walk to the bus as I normally do.  This morning however, I took one step onto the parkinglot and slipped and fell really hard on my butt.  Serious hurt.  I couldn't even move for a minute.  Then I stood myself up and staggered forward to some snow for traction, then as I stood there the world went dark and I couldn't feel my legs and I (somehow) remained standing but momentarily blacked out.  That and the blood on my hands convinced me to go back inside.  Thank goodness my first class is lab and I can be late (although I don't like to be and generally am early rather than late).  So I went upstairs, washed my hands, noticed my face looked waxy yellow-white in the mirror, and sat down on the couch for a while (a few minutes with my head on Andrew's knee).  Then I put on my yak-tracks and made my traction-y way to the bus stop to catch the next bus.  
So all day my sacrum has hurt like a mo-fo, especially if I bend or twist my torso.  Very unfortunate.  Thank goodness for Leah and her ever-ready supply of pharmecuticals.  I had myself several ibuprofin during class.
In conclusion: I firmly believe that parking lots should not double as ice rinks.
