I hope you are okay! It is good to get the first one out of the way though. ;)
I don't remember my very first fall, but after a while you stop caring to a small extent, as long as it is not serious. My last fall was probably 3-4 months ago (though the fall before that was about 6 years prior) and was when my horse tripped and fell almost to his shoulders. I landed on my shoulder, rolled onto my back and saw his front hoof and nose coming straight for my face. Thankfully, I was able to get out of the way in time. For that fall, nobody saw it happen, but were around and came as I was getting up. I wasn't even embarrased that time and just jumped back on and started working again. :)
