Happy B. Day!
Hi Flower, I fell twice in my house in 2004 and hit the back of my head, one day before I got paralized, my first fall was in the garden and I fell in slow motion too the bad part was when my head hit the ground made of rocks, my head hurt me for a month, the second fall was in my way to the bathroom my husband wanted to carry me, but i told him to let me try to walk and I will hold him by the shoulders, bad mistake, because my knees bend and I fell again, hitting the back of my head with the floor. I started to cry and I couldn´t move and I felt so weak, that day he took me to the ER, the Doctors didn´t know what was going on, they thougt that I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics, because I had bronquitis, they let me go home, and the next day I woke up and I couldn´t move anything, after a month I was diagnosed with MF and took me 13 months to walk again, I had to use a wheelchair all the time, when I could try to walk again I had to use first a walker and after a month I used a cane, I couldn´t gave up my cane, but I had to. because I didn´t need it anymore.
I hope you get a beautiful cane for your birthday. 😀 and if you don´t, try to use stickers on them to cheer you up.
best of luck to you from Mexico Winnie.
