    Falling over

    Can anyone tell me what actually happened when you had your first fall? Was it a sudden loss of legs or sudden loss of balance? Or something completely different naturally. Thanks and Stay Safe and Happy. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘x

    Balance for me as I caught my foot on a kerb and down I went. I donโ€™t think you can draw any conclusion from this as it will be different for everyone. Have you fallen recently?
    Iโ€™m going to do this even if it kills me!

        Havenโ€™t totally fallen , but knees just give way when standing up or if bending over, sometimes bend over further than I was expecting, my strategy is expect it and be prepared , so for me itโ€™s muscle and balance issues , such fun (even more fun when Iโ€™ve had a couple of pints)
        As long as thereโ€™s golf and beer Iโ€™m happy

          Theyโ€™ve all seemed different when Iโ€™ve fallen, but I think the first time I just fell forward and face planted the floor ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅด

              Janette that's what's happened to Stephen. No time to even put his hands in front of his face.

                Balance for me, I tripped on a fascia board in my garden in the rain realised I was falling put my arm out Iโ€™m broke it. Ouch it hurt bad. What made it worse was my dog what is out there with me and started licking my face while I was down๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I couldnโ€™t stop him

                  My first fall was when I tripped on a kerb and fell face down, bearing in mind my arms are useless, I got taken to hospital with a gash in my fore head.
                  My second fall was backwards. Walking down a path, I bent my legs slightly and they just give way. Luckily I directed myself backwards onto some grass and my head hit the grass instead of the path, so no injury.

                          Balance - then the 'move' signal to say 'put your arms out to break the fall, Crazy Lady', doesn't work and a face plant/back of the head plant ensues.
