Re: TIMES HAVE CERTAINLY CHANGED

[ Edited ]

I have to lean on the closet door jamb to put on pants, underwear or socks. We do have those rails on our bed to help when getting out of bed safely in the morning. Not sure where or when my balance left me, but yowza it can be a challenge getting dressed safely.

 

Edited to add....I never could do a cartwheel. Also couldn't tumble or dive either. Was great at many sports....just not anything that required my head to be lower than my waist when my feet were not touching the ground.

Too true. I have to sit down while performing that little activity.

 

I was talking to my SO not too long ago while he was trying to put on a pair of jeans and his leg kept missing the pant leg, not once, but several times. We both started laughing and I told him to sit down before he broke his neck.



@LuvSoCal ... I'm dying laughing from this!!! I could picture it because I've been there myself !!! 😂😂😂

Oh, gosh! I got a chuckle out of these. I'm so glad I am not alone in my less than graceless time of life. I was never able to do a cartwheel deliberately either though I have accidentally come close a time or two! 🤣


@Puggywuggy ... Definitely me too !!! 😂😂

@cheriere.  It's always embarrassing when someone has to call fire & rescue to get you up.

I know right lol!  My dad was actually outside whenever I "thought" about trying a cartwheel.  He's like you'd better NOT cause you know I'm not able to carry you to the car to go to the hospital!

Re: TIMES HAVE CERTAINLY CHANGED

After 2 joint replacements and 2 more on the horizon I take my balance VERY seriously LOL! Just grateful to still be able to ride my horse and be a productive member of society!
