    Ah, this is a good one! Raise your hand if you haven’t fallen or almost fallen from the unsteady LEMS walk. Just yesterday I got out of my car and stumbled towards the Physical Therapy office, staggering like I’d had too much alcohol, left and right. Fortunately, I didn’t fall. In fact I’m in PT right now from a fall suffered out on a walk some time ago.

    Of course a fall can’t stop any of us from bouncing back. Having a fall or near fall registers in my brain to be more careful, to use hand rails when available, and take stairs carefully. In the winter, with ice or snow on the ground, I’ve been extra, extra careful.

    Thank you! Yes, I’ve personally tripped about 7 times today alone! Luckily, I catch myself and almost expect to trip so it’s pretty rare that I actually fall.

    I’m glad that you don’t let your falls hinder or stop your progress! We just have to keep moving!
