    Takes me back years when I fell through a pane of glass at the bottom of the stairs, splitting my head on the edge of door needing 10 stiches, losing a tooth toppling like a log. I did the toilet too but as I fell, I span and ended up sitting on the toilet. Result!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

    Given the dangers involved I think it should be an Olympic sport with points for danger and technique. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

        Heather, just to make matters worse - it takes very little for us to lose balance and to keel over like a felled tree, without the notion of an arm going out to break the fall

          It's a shame there isn't some kind of training in how to fall.

              Parachuting, judo and probably more sports teach you how to fall but I guess that's ok if you have time to react. I used to wear stupid high heel shoes and was forever falling. It got to the stage where I used to think 'oh here we go' on the way down which made me relax and I think saved me from a lot of injury. ๐Ÿค•

                Years ago my brother got drunk and jumped into the harbour. Trouble was the tide had gone out. He broke his back. Doc told him that being drunk saved his life as he was relaxed when he landed. Catch 22 in real life don't you think?

                  What happened about his back? Being relaxed definitely helps.

                        And mine Denise aged 36 however I enjoy a drink but recognise my limits which with MND are very low.

                          My brother wasn't very old he left two young children. I don't drink but I don't have a problem with those that want to.

                            My father and my childhood friend both to booze. I was even married to a recovering alcoholic. These days I just have brandy in coffee because I can. ๐Ÿ˜‰

                              Yes I don't get it. Alcohol is responsible for so much and yet it's available everywhere. It doesn't make sense. For those that seek help it's usually too late.
