… for the first time ever, I was having so much fun and I was doing really well in the beginning. Then I started pushing off and skating a little harder. I shouldn’t have done that, because the next thing I knew was that I was in a stretcher being worked on by EMTs. Apparently I fell and hit my head on the ice and got a concussion, also got a very bruised tail bone. Ouch! I’m fine. I had a cat scan and an X-ray. All’s well. I do have a concussion though, and do not, not for the world, remember the fall. However, my anxiety is gone. I has massive amounts of anxiety the last 10 days or so, but it’s gone!!! I feel light and airy and calm and at peace. How did that happen? Maybe I simply needed a clomp on the head, ha ha ha. Will it last? I hope so. I hate anxiety, feeling like the world is ending for no reason whatsoever. A concussion cured anxiety! At least for the moment. Not happy about my head and tailbone pain but thrilled about the absence of anxiety. And I have promised myself I’m going to learn how to skate like a pro. Oh yes I am!
