Sadly earlier on today with my standing aid I nearly had yet another fall, but with my partner Frank’s quick thinking he sat me back onto the commode before I fell onto the floor. It feels like I’m losing my confidence, Frank thinks one of the problems is that I can no longer lock my knees in place which means I fall backwards. I get very scared and end up screeching at the wall in panic, I think out loud in the panic and Frank thinks I’m shouting at him when I’m not. With my Secondary Progressive MS being degenerative I fear for the future. I guess I’ll be using my hoists a lot more – very depressed.
Thank you everyone for reading this blog, you must think I go on an awful lot, my sincere apologies for that, take care and enjoy you weekend.
