Possible Cracked Rib
Yeppers! Acording to most of my family, I probably have a cracked rib! Isn't life grand.
Wanna know how it happened? Course you do! Lol.
My mare launched me the other day... in our yard! My grandmothers huge rooster attacked her as we rode by and she just went completely nuts and turned into a right bronc... I was using a relatively new bit on her after a long time of using a hackamore, so I didn't want to jerk back on the reins... I tried to just hang on until she was through her little fit, but I couldn't quite make it and she launched me through the air...
Right now, it hurts to cough, breathe deeply, laugh, yawn, and other things like that. It's been getting worse these past few days; I've been living on aspirin.
I'm not gong to a doctor, though, because you can't do anything for broken or cracked ribs so why bother making an unnecessary trip and wasting precious money...
