So, last time I went to Walgreens I got to make a hilarious, albeit not-safe-for-work journal entry about vibrators.

This time I get to make a journal entry about almost dying! ... I really wish that was a joke. XDX

See, this is the street I normally walk down. Normal Street As you can see, it's a sidewalk and has a guard rail. It's a safe street to walk down... but today, there was a rather large dog wandering around on this side of the street. It didn't actually look vicious, but it was barking at me and given its size, I decided not to take any chances. So I crossed the street to the other side.

Death Street. As you'll notice, this side of the street does not have a guard rail. I'll also direct your attention to that area where the asphalt turns into sidewalk. See... I was so preoccupied watching the dog to make sure it didn't cross the street after me that I didn't notice that change in the walkway. So I ended up falling... hard. I landed on my right knee, which you may recall I have dislocated twice in the past.

... Yeeeeah, not fun. I also scrapped my left knee and both palms, but those are just scrapes. Sure, it's unpleasant, but no real harm done. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for my right knee. It's cut up pretty bad, was bleeding for quite a while. It's also extremely red and swollen, and I cannot put ANY weight on it at all without it hurting extremely bad.

Worse yet, when I fell, I very nearly rolled right into the street. I barely realized it and rolled back onto the sidewalk. Traffic was coming along pretty good, too, so... yeah. It's a bit of an exaggeration to say I almost died, but at the same time, it was still way too fucking close for my taste. XDX

What really pisses me off is at least three cars slowed down and stared at me while I was on the sidewalk. I was struggling to get up, and, well, how often do you see people lay on the sidewalk? Yeah, OBVIOUSLY something was wrong, and it wasn't until the fourth driver to come by that someone actually stopped to help. This guy came over and helped me get up and offered me a ride home, but I told him I'd call for a ride.

So I did call my mom... and she didn't answer. And I noticed my battery was almost dead. Luckily, she did answer the third time I called and I was able to get a ride home.

I'm only on the computer right now because I'm eating. I'll be going straight back to bed after this. Sitting in a chair is not fun right now. I'll try to get online later, but I'm also on Vicodin right now, so I'm both extremely high and getting really sleepy.
