    TL;DR - Was packing up fro a private meet, and was just about ready to leave. Was taking the CD collection down, and then wiped out. External bruising, possible internal bruising, nothing broken. Still hurts like hell.

    Sorry to hear that. Had a similar experience with stone steps at my sister's school a few years back, but fortunately no internal damage. Hope you (and the CDs) are doing well!

    Stairs are the reason our retirement house will be single story. We have both fallen on our stairs several times over the years. No breaks, but lots of bruises. Hope you feel better soon. Ouch!

    We've had our share of spills. Household saying "Socks on stairs gain little sympathy"

    Oh nasty. Maybe it is not so much the fault of the wood as the finish? My worst fear is polished stone outdoors. Like... how could any architect ever be that stupid!

    Ice bag on the bruises? Can help. I'm currently trying to read the screen while holding one to an inflamed eye. Wearing glasses.

    Thanks everyone, things are fine. The only CDs that took damage are still in production, so I don't need to shell out $$$ on MFSL stuff again. And yeah, the socks were a mistake, luckily a couple amazon boxes helped break the fall. Probably would have cracked a rib without them.

    Man that was a major fall you took. Sounds like you got checked by a doc. But thank god no MFSL discs weren't damaged! The horror, the horror. :). Ice man, ice if you haven't already. Trust us "experienced" folks.

    @Ringingears - Worked wonders for the shoulder. And yeah, saw a doc about it, didn't want to take chances. I had a relative nearly die due to a larger albeit similar fall. Spleens are serious business.

    Good. I've experienced the same thing with stairs and older relatives and family friends. Except some of them didn't make it. Best friends father for one. Hence the eventual move. Take care and rest.
