Hey Joy, so sorry to hear that you fell. I hope that you didn't do any serious damage to your shoulder. It sounds very painful. It's amazing how much it hurts to fall now, I took a nasty fall last year and I swear I hurt for 6 months afterwards. I hope you start feeling better soon and keep us updated. Take care.

  Dear Joy,

   My goodness. You are having a very very bad couple of weeks. smhair   I do hope your appointment goes well. More so, I hope the ortho is very diligent about finding the source of the problem. Try to rest that shoulder when / if you can. Hang in there and stay strong!

Dear Joy,

I have always been a clutz! My mom always said she should have named me in graceful...LOL! Anyway, it has continued into adulthood and even more since the CP or at least I remember the trips and falls more! So I know where you are coming from and I definitely feel for you! Hope you get to feeling better soon and try to be more careful! How many times have I heard that one!

Take care of you!

Thank you, guys.
I'm just tired of all the pain.
As a child I was always getting hurt in some way. Mostly tripping and falling down...
I keep a bag of assorted sized ace bandages and splints from previous falls to use if I get hurt again. My PT tells me "we've got to work on your balance". :S

Oh Joy,

I am so sorry that you are having such a tough time lately. To fall is such a painful thing and so frustrating. I do hope you are starting to feel better soon and that you will find the answers you need from the Ortho. Mostly I hope you will be able to heal without additional surgery, PT, or other painful option.

Best wishes my friend.

That's my prayer, retired mom.
I'm getting tired of seeing doctors.
