So how are you feeling? Did you go to the Dr to get check out for internal injuries?

LOL, for what it's worth, I'm sure it will heal up quickly and the scar will fade. Last fall, I took a similar fall and ended up with an identical gash just below my eyebrow. Now, you can't even see the scar unless I point it out to you.

Glad that you're doing okay, taking a fall is never fun at all.

Yes, I went to the urgent care that is conveniently by my work. I have a contusion of the liver and bruised ribs. Nothing serious enough to kill me, but I do need to try to rest as much as possible.

Hope you feel better! Be careful with those stitches, don't want to get a scar. I've always been horrible with stitches. My knees are different colors and my hands have marks all over them from random accidents. But then again, I'm weird when it comes to wounds.

Feel better soon :)

LOL, I guess that it just sort of depends on the person. I finally got my first set of stitches about 2 years ago to close a big gash on my forehead. Now, even I have trouble seeing exactly where the scar is because it's so faint.

I've had over 1,000 stitches and staples in my body so far. I used to self injure really bad so I don't think one more scar is going to make much of a difference!

Y'all are lucky with your light scars.

I scar HORRENDOUSLY....then again...I do get hurt horrendously as well lol

OP I'm glad you went and got checked out. Nurse those ribs. Rib injuries are THE WORST haha.

Glad it wasn't too serious for you
