Here are a few pics of the more visible effects from last Saturday’s accident. Click for larger. (The last three are from my cameraphone.)
Apart from the pain and wounded ego, the worst part at the moment is the sense of time lost with various walks, hikes, and bike rides not being done. Not to mention falling behind in work and home projects. Being limited to using only one hand to type is super annoying, since my work and much of my hobbies involve using a keyboard.
If I hadn’t been wearing my helmet, I probably wouldn’t be writing this at all.
On the bright side, the shoulder feels somewhat better, though still creepy as various bits move around in a thoroughly disturbing manner. I’m looking forward to attempting a walk around the block soon, and really looking forward to physical therapy (the therapist is awesome), and getting back on track with everything.
So, I’ll need a new helmet. And some blinking lights. ;)
