I fought the stairs and the stairs won, part 2

Anyone remember how unlucky I am with stairs? I don't take them much when I don't have to, but Julio and I have a hard time finding the wheelchair ramp that would take us to the basement of our residence hall (it starts outside). So, when we want to get inside, we do use stairss. Not ideal, but it works usually.

I had a huge bag of laundry (stereotypical college student that I am, I'd taken it home over Easter break and Mom brought it back today). Anyway, here I am, balancing way too much, nd there is snow/rain/something wet making the tile slick. I fell forward, up the stairs this time. One small bruise on RSD leg, and one huge bruise on non-RSD knee. The big trick is that I use that knee for a lot, and it doesn't like me right now. It's painful, but it wouldn't be a problem if I had more reserves from which to draw.

This is one of those times when you have to laugh. And then realize limitations and figure out another way to do it more safely the next time.
