Three weeks ago, just after a training session on my new job, I tripped and broke my wrist. I did not realize when I took the job that I would be required to store large boxes of supplies( metal hooks and plastic strips) at my home. My supervisor gave me the boxes, and told me to take them home. I got the large and unwieldy boxes into my car with no problem. However, when I got home I tripped when I removed the first box.I fell towards the wall of my house, and quickly decided to stop my fall with my hand, not my head.
I have been in a cast for three weeks, and will find out this week if I will need surgery. I am certainly re-evaluating this line of work. I have always been very fitness conscious, so this has been a real blow to me. I will not be cleared to work for several months.
