The sunset ride is only just coming back to me now, it feels like a dream. Gradually I’m piecing things together. The last moments I remember were seeing my mare trot towards us calling from the other side of the fence in dim light. I was close to home. My last thought was: “All you have to do is stay on, you will stop eventually.” From then on it’s all a blank. I have no recollection. I’m not sure how long I was knocked out and unconscious lying on the ground, or how I came off my horse, how I walked back home having her by my side.
He tells me I called for him inside the house telling him something was wrong, but I didn’t know what. My face told the story for me. How much time went by is a mystery to me, but it was dark. I have no recollection.
I “awoke” on the staircase with a familiar face taking care of me, gradually recognizing my surroundings and yet not knowing what time of year it was, only to be startled to see Christmas decorations. I knew my name and my son’s name. I didn’t recognize what I was wearing and thought I had just woken up from a dream. Why was there so much interest when I had just awoken? My hubby was naturally concerned with my severe confusion and after I insisted on showering we spent Saturday evening in emergency trauma.
I walked in by myself with extreme lower back pain, it reminded me of going into labor and walking like I was about to give birth. Surprisingly, I had no headache despite feeling extreme nausea. The trauma unit took my horse riding situation seriously and put me through all kinds of scans to finally determine it was no worse than a concussion. With debris tangled in my hair, my helmet most likely saved my life.
I’ve been through a vaulting (Gymnastics on horseback) accident, head-on car accident, and have been the passenger in a rolled over Police vehicle. I’ve been assaulted on numerous occasions and have been kicked, bitten, yanked, dragged, and fallen off horses a number of times, but never experienced broken bones or a concussion before. I consider myself well-taken-care-of.
I am thankful my Creator did not call me home just yet and I was brought to tears this morning when my 5-year old son stated: “but Mummy you were wearing a helmet, right?” He already knows the importance of this protection. ” I would love you forever…” he said, as he contemplated his thoughts. Instead, I am surrounded by angels to learn lessons I have yet to discover.
I will take care of myself and nurture those pieces that have been bruised as I care about my body. This time, instead of treating my body simply as a machine that needs servicing I will feel the love for myself. My life will never be the same as I unravel the effects of this fall, but I do know it will be better.
What Oil I chose to Help Mitigate Effects of the Fall and to Regain my
Brain Power Essential Oil is an excellent blend of essential oils that is specifically designed to bring mental clarity and greater focus that is sometimes associated with mental fatigue or a long day at work.
It contains oils that are very high in sesquiterpenes, which support healthy brain function. Use it before a meeting or competition to give you that mental edge. Or use it to help you focus during meditation. Either way, Brain Power is a welcome blend.
