I was getting up from being seated on the floor at work (changing prices on a very low shelf) and I slip, and hear a popping noise. Tore the meniscus in my knee. I always imagined my first real injury after getting Topaz would be FROM Topaz.

Nope. Floor got me good.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

Don't feel too bad lol, my partner just sprained his ankle really badly stepping out of a car into the gutter. He used to break in horses and rides dirt bikes - and he was still having a massive boohoo about it! Broken/sprained feet bits HURT. They have to carry all your weight after all. And there are so many little bones in there and a fair few nerves too.

Hope yours mends itself ASAP - try and come up with a heroic alternate tale however

Hey, don't feel bad, I can sprain/strain my ankles walking across a level, gravel parking lot. That's why I developed the habit of walking looking down at what I was stepping on.
There's also the time that I fell down the front porch stairs(of with there were three and a concrete pad and sidewalk) and cracked my shin on the corner of the concrete pad, landing face first on my briefcase on the sidewalk. That bruise was knarling looking in about a minute. In case you're wondering, nope didn't go to the dr. Was only about thirty minutes late for work. Walked with a limp for about a week though.
I totally get the really moments! Hopefully it isn't broken and you'll heal recover quickly.

Oh and I re-broke my toe just walking across a street. Stepped off it and CRUNCH. Ugh. I've also broken a finger playing catch... Horses? Bah, ordinary life is more dangerous LOL.

ARGH! you guys are making me cringe so hard my teeth are grinding right out of my head. I hate hearing about injuries with sound effects. Sorry, but that grosses me out way more than the sight of blood.

It also freaks me, because I have a really big trip planned in late May, and I have to stay in one piece until then, no matter what. hearing about all these seeminly random injuries is giving me fits.

Don't worry about your trip, Tiny - just make sure you spend all your time up until then riding horses! Seems to be the safest thing to do, judging by this thread...

A surgeon told me our legs and strength is designed for forward movement, with side pressure being rather week. Even tho skiers are moving forward fast they are also putting a lot of torque on their joints as they shift their weight from one side to the other. The plateau break at the knee is the most common fracture then the ankle.

I'm not broken, but MAN, I pulled that muscle behind my left knee, and I'm walking around like a gimp!!! **nasty smiley's, like the OP used**
I think I pulled it slipping on hay on the wood in my barn's loft!! COULDN'T be slipping on ice, or my horse kicked me, or something with dignity.
Prayers sent for rapid healing. **MANY hugs**

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did!
