You know how women who are abused will say they fell down the stairs or they ran into a door nob? Yeah. I haven't fallen down the stairs in a while, but I constantly hit my arms on the handlesets as I pass them, or worse, the edging of the door - that leaves a nice bigggg bruise :(
Best yet, the other day I was lifting a stool over a desk, paying attention to the desk to make sure I did not hit it with the legs of the stool when the leg crashed into a closet door jamb. the stool of course hit me smack in the mouth giving me a bloody lip. but who on earth believes a woman with a a fat lip who says "Oh, yeah, I hit it on a stool"
Oh! Oh! Wait! I have one better! back when our now eight year old was about 8 months old or so, I was walking with him in my arms and stepped on a toy which bloody hurt and I fell. I put out my one arm to catch myself so I did not break the baby I was carrying and ended up with a sore wrist. I ignored it, but when my husband got home from work he insisted I have it x-rayed as it was quite swollen.
At the clinic, the doctor tried to get me and my baby to hide away at a shelter and arrest my husband for beating me.
I know that people do get beaten, and I know kit sucks and I should be glad that there are people who care and who try to assist the victims, but it makes it damn awkward to be a clumsy person, when there are people who care LOL
