No ‘mental quackery’

While I was loading my kayak onto a rack on top of my car, the small stepladder I was standing on shifted in the gravel, and I fell backward into a car parked next to mine. As I fell, I hit my head and one arm. I was at a relative’s home, and soon concerned folks were surrounding me. Their immediate concern was about my scalp, which was bleeding, but I also wasn’t able to use my left arm.

A towel was put over the scalp wound, and they wished me well as the friend who had come with me drove me home. My wrist was painful and difficult to move, especially if I tried to twist or lift it. I had to handle fears that I should have my wrist examined or X-rayed to see if a bone was broken. It was late when I got home, and I waited until the next morning to call a practitioner.
