Is there a piece of furniture in your home, or maybe even a door or a wall, that although it has always been there, you keep crashing into or falling over?

I ask this with an ice pack on the side of my knee, trying to prevent yet another bruise that I get at least 3 or 4 times a year simply by walking into our trunk (that we use as a coffee table) in the family room!

It has always been there, I know it's there, it's in plain sight, but does that stop me from walking into it? No, of course not! So I'm wondering if this happens to you in your house, too?

Yes I often trip over or crash into things that have always been there, no idea how I just do. I hope you are doing ok now and feeling better, sending thoughts your way and have a nice weekend. Reply

I moved a chair from my study to next to the hall to the laundry, keep knocking my knee on it. Did it twice yesterday. Reply

Seems like many have coffee table issues. I think a lot of mid lower leg injuries are caused by them and not a fan of them at all. Low slung and the reason I just don't want one and just use a small side table easy to move about, and you don't have to try and move the table to vacuum under if you don't have one.
But my kitchen table is a bit low and myself and others have complained that you bump you knees getting up from it. Solution is to raise it a bit on the bottom of the legs or get another one. ITs on the to do list.

Mine is both the middle kitchen bench and also the oven door if it is left open. I am constantly hitting/knocking both hips into it as the size of the bench and oven door is at my hip level. It hurts when i do it which is quite often even though the kitchen bench has been there longer than i have been alive. There are probably other objects/obstacles that i hurt myself on all the time but the kitchen bench/oven door are the main ones. Reply

You poor thing. I really feel for you. Yes, like reds, mine is the coffee table in the dining area. I know it is there and my poor toe cops it quite a lot. The pain is intense although I must admit to having the pain threshold of a gnat. Get well soon! Reply

I have the same problem with the coffee table in the lounge room and constantly stubbing my toe . I'm sure it has a mind of it's own , but i have a compounding problem circumnavigating around the cat and dog . Reply
