ahh! yes! I am sooo bad with the dropping and bumping. I went shopping yesterday evening...and I am not joking when I say this...I picked up a pair of socks to buy...and dropped them literally about 10 times before I paid for them...I mentioned it to my sister in law after about the 5th time...like "could I drop these socks any more than I already have...?" and I did... this happens all the time...
I also used to have big bruises on both of my hips from bumping into prep tables in the kitchen when I worked in a restaurant...no matter how hard I tried to watch out..it still happened...I always thought maybe I was just a little less graceful than the next girl..but maybe its a fibro thing.
When I first got fibro I would read alot about others that dropped things or tripped easily. I thought, is this another thing I am going to get?? Yes, I do get that now. Not at the same degree some have but I drop things and trip more easily. Mind you I have been pretty graceful all my life till now. So I think it is a FM thing because I never did that before.
Just the other day I was reaching to warm up a cup of coffee to put in the microwave and I misjudged and hit the open door of the microwave and the coffee spilled everywhere! Glad it was a "cold" cup of coffee! And I was not tired-
Watch those lit cigarettes Karen!
Hi Karen! Amazingly, the "dropsies" have never really been a problem for me.....at least not YET! At least not with anything "animate" anyway! I do seem to have serious problems though with dropping "trains of thought", "memory", "pain thresholds", "sanity" and "motivation".........just to name a few..............(LOL)
I'm with Marlee......always beauty and grace and, with me, it's STILL there!(LOL) Watch out for that "hard" water in the shower dear.....it's can be murder!
Gentlest of hugs,
