Do any of you ever have those days where your balance is really bad or you just generally feel really unsteady on your feet and then it has a knock-on effect of loads of other stuff you try and do?
I dropped a glass the other day, and that in my worry that it would smash everywhere and I wouldn’t be able to clean t up, I dropped another. As it happened, neither of them actually broke. I have no idea how I managed to be so lucky but I’m not going to complain about it!
Then I decided to get something out of the fridge (probably milk for a cup of tea) and because I was still feeling a bit shaking from dropping everything, I got a bit wobbly and though I was going to fall over as I pulled the fridge door open. After that, I decided that it would probably be best to sit down and not move until I’d calmed myself down again.
I think I was okay after that, but once I start to worry about hitting the deck or hurting myself it just seems to happen over and over again.
Some days, if I fall over once, it leaves me feeling pretty nervous and shaken up. The problem is that once I get nervous that makes me and my muscles tense up, which of course makes me more likely to trip up and I end up face-planting the floor more than once.
On other days I don’t actually fall at all and just spend the whole day feeling really unbalanced, and almost tumble over several times but always somehow manage to stop myself. In some ways, I actually think that’s worse because I’m constantly on edge waiting for it to happen.
Does this sound familiar?
