At work two days ago, I was minding my own business, busy slugging parcels from the belt to the monos (moving parcels from metal rollers to containers that are basically a 4'X4'X4' cage), when a forklift driver came up behind me to pick up the mono but forgot to drop the forks all the way. She hit the mono at a good clip, which then hit me and knocked me down onto the belt.

The doctor says I'm out for one to four weeks. It's all soft tissue damage, so no visible abrasions, bruises, cuts, and of course no breaks. But from my neck down to my thigh, mostly on the left side (the side that hit the belt, interestingly; I know the mono hit me, but I wonder if my cat-like reflexes saved me from a worse injury and yet contributed to what I have).

Updates will come when I see the physiotherapist.
