My Husband’s Forgetfulness Caused Me a Lot of Pain

I do not know what the problem is, but I have a husband who does not remember things very easily. He leaves a lot of things out where they should not be in the house. It is something that I have never been able to change when it comes to him. Sometimes he remembers, but most of the time he does not. He definitely did not remember to pick our weight scale up off the bathroom floor. I tripped over it and had to go to a chiropractor in sacramento after I began experiencing extreme pain from the fall.

Oh, you can imagine my anger after I fell and realized what caused it. We have a small bathroom, so I normally make sure that the scale is placed in an out of the way area so that no one will trip on it. But my husband pulls it out to use it and forgets to put it back. It is made of very thick glass, so it is to miss when it is placed on our white floor. I went rushing into the bathroom one day to take a shower. I had no shoes on, and my foot caught underneath the scale. Before I knew it, I was on my back on the floor. I also hit the toilet on the way down. Actually, I slammed into the toilet before I landed on my back.

Getting angry was no help. What was done was done. I just needed help getting better. I took some asprin each day to try to ease the pain. The bruises subsided after about a week, but the pain did not. I could not get through each day at work in so much pain, so I made an appointment with a chiropractor. That really helped me out a lot.
