So in trend of #dontbeafruit, this is what a lucky stupid person gets. Really anon that I saw saying bones are stronger than fruit etc? In my naive state of invincibility, just sitting on a perfectly calm horse until he spooked bc of a dog. He took off bucking, just a handful of mane and I sat 3 before I tumbled to the ground in a heap. His hoof hit my arm I had been holding on with through the air, this is not being stepped on. My tissue is still damaged even today with a slightly darker patch of skin where the main abrasion was, and this was just a few hours afterwards. So even though nothing was broken, it hurt bad enough I thought I had broken it. I also had an apple sized bruise on my inner arm by my armpit where he had nicked it also. Let’s not forget the hand holding the mane had stupidly held on and dragged me a bit where I grass scratches up and down my legs. So guys, please trust and bond with your horse but don’t prove it with overly ridiculous stunts.
I have to go to the doctors for a suspected connective tissue disease, I'm glad to finally be getting somewhere. If I have a diagnosis people can't make me feel crazy, by saying it's in my head. I just have a feeling my life is about to change drastically and turn into a whirlwind of doctors and specialists and it's so nerve-racking. Any advice?
