Accident prone ME

I am not sure what is going on with me these last few weeks. I have been accident prone and the winter here is not helping me at all. I have to say, it hurts double in winter for sure.

So the accidents started with me hitting myself with my car. Don’t worry, I am fine but the way it happened was so stupid. After work one evening, I was getting into my car and can you believe it, I hit my head really hard with the door while opening it. I thought I cracked my forehead as it hurt so badly. Tears were rolling down my cheeks and I had no control over them. I didn’t know what to do so I got into the car, sat on the seat and put pressure on my forehead with my palm to prevent swelling. Thankfully, it didn’t swell but it was painful for the next 10 days or more.

I had already forgotten about the incident by the next week when another accident happened. I do need to admit that it was stupid as well. AS was working that day so I decided to clean the house on my own. One of the things that were bothering me was the drawers in my dressing table was coming off. It really need fixing and I thought that it would be an easy fix with the help of a hammer. So I decided early in the morning that I should fix the drawers.  I took the big hammer from AS’s hardware box and started fixing the drawer. As I didn’t want to put dents on it, I covered it with a cloth and started to hammer. It was working fine until suddenly I felt this pain in my hand and I could barely breathe. I looked down and saw that I had hammered one of my fingers by mistake and my hand was blazing with pain.

I so wished AS was home that day as I couldn’t control the pain and started crying. I just sat on the floor and did nothing for a while. When I gain my composure finally I went to the kitchen and ran cold water on my finger.  I hoped running cold water for a while would make sure that my nail wouldn’t come off as it was turning a bit by then. It was one of the coldest days of winter and my hand felt almost dead after the ordeal. Thankfully, there was no blood but my nail turned black. It is still black and I am hoping it will not fall off as it doesn’t hurt any more. But for the first few weeks it was hard for me to pick anything up with that hand.

To add the crème to my accident incident, last night I did something stupid AGAIN.  I was home from work and had just changed. I was walking from our bed room to the living room and my feet hit the cupboard on the way. Can you believe that, I can’t even walk anymore? It was really, really painful. AS was home at that time so he came running to see what had happened when he heard my scream.  Thankfully no blood again but it was really painful for a few hours.

Seriously, I don’t know what is wrong with me. I have never had so many stupid accidents in my life. If it was in Nepal, they would have told me that my dasha (horoscope) is not good these days so we would need to perform some puja to God but here I am not sure what to do to stop all these accidents. Hope that is all I have in store for me and it will not happen again.

Wish me luck guys.
