Well I had my first fall yesterday. Came a crashing down flat on my face. I am ok but gave us all a big scare. It happened so quickly, don't remember falling, just landing on my nose. Lucky nothing is broken. A bit of bruising on my nose. Legs just went from under me as I got up to walk. Tried to move to fast I think. not concentrating on my feet. Been very careful since then, Lost a little bit of confidence, using walking stick around the house again. Went out shopping with the kids today and bought myself a new TV. Can watch the cricket on a big telly now. Not that Australia are doing exceptionally well at the moment. LOL. Happy New Year to you all Take Care Vicki

Hi Vicki, I too had a fall when my feet/legs were really bad. I caught my foot in a door and just went straight down. Fortunately my friend who is a nurse was on hand and she dealt with me beautifully. My knees became like basket balls for a couple of days,however. I remember being n the floor wondering what else could happen!!! Enjoy the new tele. Samex
