I don’t know how, but I remember looking down and my feet just buckled and I fell. It was as if one foot tripped over the other?
I caught myself with my left arm. All my food fell out of my lunch bag into the dirty gravel.
I got up as quickly as I could so that no one would see. I looked around and I didn’t see anyone, not even a car drove by.
Usually there’s always people around, or a car… just someone. This time, no one. No one saw me fall.
I was relieved no one saw me fall, because I felt embarrassed. I made sure I was dirty… or bleeding. I looked at my palm and it was red. My arm felt sore and I started to feel sorry for myself. I didn’t know if I should report it or not. I didn’t even click on yet. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me or think I’m complaining. I don’t like that.
I went into the office and kind of wanted to cry. I didn’t have to be at work today; it’s actually my day off, but I picked up the extra shift.
I miss my kids… I fell today, and no one saw.
