Thrown on to the sea floor by the waves

LaBellaLunaKiss -

I am a very strong swimmer, but last week I almost drowned at the beach. A hurricane was approaching the Atlantic and the waves and rip tide were to much for anyone to fight. As I was being tossed around the ocean like a rag doll, I landed in a sitting position on the ocean floor. I fell with such strong force right on my tailbone.

Thank goodness I was able to arrive at shore safely, but I am still in excruciating pain a week later, I am seriously considering going to see a specialist now.
