How to fall… with style

Yes you really need to learn to fall. I learned to fall 51 years ago when i fell head over heels and have been falling ever since. Lol.  Happy Anniversary to my sweetheart.

………………………… saw this post in another conversation…..

“I fell last night. I dropped like a sack of potatoes. 
My arm was bleeding and my left leg was throbbing. 
All I could think about was how I would feel in the next morning. 
Well, I awoke with minimal pain and a stiff leg. 
It could have been worse if I didn’t remember how to fall. 
My PT coach taught me how to fall. It’s a split second decision. 
If there is something to grab on to you’re lucky. If not, try to fall on your side. 
It’s safer than falling face first or on your back where your head hits the floor. 
Now, I didn’t say it wouldn’t hurt but it does avert serious injuries 
Today I hurt but I’m walking. “

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
