Glad you're all right!
I hung my Hydration pack of one of the legs, then I I hung my quilts that were stored in their mesh bags on the same side. Not taking in consideration that all that weight would pull the stand at the head of the hammock down, the stand at my head topple over. The stand at my feet was then subjected to me trying to untangle myself while two dogs decided to play tackle the goof ball wrapped in the hammock. It was quite funny really. Thankfully I was only 12" off the ground and just happened to have a sleeping pad situated under the hammock.
After getting everything back in place one of the polls had slipped through the lashing.
