Falls


Recommended Posts

Post in metal roofs made me think about when I had surgery. Nurse asked do you have trouble with falls? I should have said “No I have no problem with falling, but getting back up I do.”

Landing is easy the recovery takes time.

I fell a couple of months ago and suffered with painful ribs for about five weeks.  I don't like pain because it hurts.

 

I'm going to try not to do that anymore.

I am almost 2 years out from a bad one. I am better than I was last week.

Interesting (sort of) how as time passes one becomes extremely careful going down stairs...

 

Was walking at a local park with the bride yesterday. There was a long rustic (log risers) stairway that we often go down. Holding the timber fence rail, using our walking sticks. Not that we're that feeble, but we're that cautious.

 

A forty-something guy rattles past, skipping down the stairs after one of his kids. Then he turns around and heads back up, leaping them two at a time.

 

I thought-- I did that, not so long ago...

 

Not just the ability, but the lack of fear of falling. I remember that, too.

I recently had a doctor ask me if I had trouble falling. I told her I had issues landing. That got me an eye roll. :D

This was in the emergency room after I fell off the back of a hi-rail truck and broke my left arm and hurt some other things. 
 

I fell because my foot slipped climbing off that truck and the handholds suck on the left and don’t exist on the right...that and the morons I work fit wouldn’t pay to power up the line so we had to tow trains instead of run them under power. Idiots!

Thanks 40.  I have found another statement I'm going to use! 

I love these kind sayings.  ^_^

Gravity can sometime be a bad thing.  :unsure:

There is NO SUCH THING AS GRAVITY.

 

The world sucks.
