    We got to Carriacou about 10 days ago, 40 ish hours from Dominica. About 1 am the first night anchored I fell on the boat and got a decent concussion and pinched a nerve in my neck. Lost the use of my arms , they hurt like a mother. Slowly coming back . Dizzy when I sit or stand. Seeing an osteopath here . My job is to do nothing... something Iím not at all good at.Lots of codene first few days( over the counter here). Just tap tap tap on Facebook and here. No walking, swimming, boat projects... nuttin .
    Glad I dropped the 100 pounder before I fell .

    Sorry to hear about your fall, but it sounds like you`re on the road to recovery (I hope)!

    Best wishes from grey and dismal Germany,

    Alan.

    Damn! Be careful out there & heal up soon. I get it about not being good at doing nothing.

    Heal well, Bruce. I once did more than a year like that. Immobile. Unable to sit or stand.
    I lost tons of weight and read all the books. Twice.

    Peace,

    Sorry to hear about that Bruce. Take your time to recover. Nothing good comes of trying to get going too soon after a concussion

    Goodness. Rest up and take care. And did you say that you're still tossing around 100 pound objects?
