Hi Everyone.....Looong post....sorry
All of you know of my chronic pain issues in my feet and legs. Also my balance issues. You also know I am now in PT to build up my core and leg muscles. I still have a looong way to go yet.
Today I took my second fall in a week!!(nope I do not drink LOL)
A few days ago I fell and tumbled into a shallow ditch while walking behind my house. A neighbor saw me and quickly came to my aid. When I fall I can NOT raise myself up because of my weak legs and a bum knee. I am still scratched and bruised from that fall.
Today I fell again in front of my house. Cars whizzed by while i struggled to get up. I struggled so loong I was ready to give up and just lay and weep. I was tired and in pain. I FELT SO DARNED HELPLESS!!!
I am a stong woman and have no one except myself to depend on. I am divorced from a very abusive man. When I excaped from hem I had nothing except a few summer clothes, a small savings(less than $600.00)and a recipe for bath soap. I built up my own mail order business with my bath soap recipe. Helpless I am not....not untill I fall that is!!
I do not like being unable to help myself.
At last a pick up stopped and a gentleman came to my aid, helped me up and into my house. I can see I have a long way to go yet. My balance still sucks and my legs are very weak.
But I will not give up!! I WILL get my legs and balance back!! I may be back on crutches again for a while but that just a minor set back. This will not get me down!! It's just to easy to give up.
I fall down and I get up(with help) I will fall down and get back up on my own soon!!
