Exclamation Am I suffering from mental Illness?

Ok, so my brother is 3 hours late from coming home so I volunteer to go get him ( Ok I just wanted to ride ) Anyway I had some off roading to get back to him and well ha;f way back I caught a rut and over went my bike and I. Now for the question. As I was falling all I could think of is dont break the turn signa. Is it crazy for me to worry more about bike injury than the broken toes and puncture wound I did suffer.

Best news - no bike injury, oh and yes my toes are healing

We fear change....Exact amount only! :-D

Think of it this way. You probably assumed you would heal if injured. Signals do not heal. Total logic if you have a good health plan. Glad you are up and about, could have been worse.

Yes, that's normal

When I dropped my bike after I woke up from the first shock I asked the buddies to turn off the ignition key and stand the bike up. I was pretty angry 'cause they all were lurking around me and asking if I'm ok instead of paying attention on her...
Yeah, they are not normal. :-D
