Tipped Forward

I can not lie about being tipped forward.  I was rolling my desk chair towards the bathroom because Bing Crosby the cat and I always fight for the desk chair once I get out of it, LOL…  As I was rolling towards the bathroom, the chair must have hit a cord on the floor and all of a sudden I had lost all ability to prevent from tipping over or in this case tipping forward.  After I tipped forward I had found myself in midair because the chair had not dumped me out completely.  I was stuck in the chair.  I did find myself thinking of what to do and one of those things was how was I going to get out of the chair!  I had to wiggle my bottom out of the chair and once I did, the chair moved backwards a bit and my bottom landed on the floor and my head bumped the seat of the chair instead of the floor thank goodness.  I then laid on the floor on my back, I looked up at the ceiling of my apartment wondering how I was going to get up into sitting position as heavy as I am at over 200 lbs.  I had to do something one way or another because I did not have my phone with me and the chair was still in the way of my sliding to the table where the phone was.  I have an appointment at 2:30 PM and my ride was picking me up within the hour so I had time to get off the floor and back on my feet.  I have to do something for myself for the first time in a long time without assistance.  I have to do something by myself since we no longer have emergency pull cords.  I finally mustered the strength to put myself in siting position by doing some sit ups and grabbing the bathroom door jamb on the left side until I got into sitting position.  By that time I had found myself breathing as if I worked out.  I sat there for a few seconds or minutes wondering how I was going to get up on my feet since my knees do not like hard flooring or the carpet in my apartment.  The carpet being indoor-outdoor carpeting has made it rough feeling but easy to clean stains and such.  It is easy to vacuum (or broom when necessary) most of the time.  After scooting my bottom toward the toilet I had decided to grab the toilet seat and put my weight towards my left side which is the strongest and that was on the wastebasket I put my disposable underwear in and other trash that is not recyclables.  After I got up far enough, using my left knee to push up on, I grabbed the bar on the wall and pulled my 200+ pounds up to my feet.  I was shaking when I got to my feet but I managed.
