Last night I fell down.
The first time in forever, I wiped out.
And I laid on the floor with no way of getting up, feeling helpless and pretty stupid.
Now, there was no reason for me to feel foolish. My weaker leg pulled up last minute and it caused me to get off balance and I grabbed for the wheelchair to steady myself, but the angle was wrong and it all went OVER. It was an accident, not because of silliness or carelessness but it’s going to happen sometime.
There is no way to tell someone flat on their back, staring up at the ceiling, alone in the dark, there’s no reason to feel stupid.
You can’t help it.
Even when you know you shouldn’t, you do anyway.
In all honesty you’ve probably never fallen on your back. But try it sometime. Get on your back. Pretend you’re a turtle.
Realize there’s nothing you can do.
Falling can SUCKIT!!!
