I had a lovely BBQ in a park catching up with a group of old friends I hadn't seen for a long time. All was going well, I had my meds and was moving relatively easily. Towards the end while I was standing talking to a couple of people, one of my foot took a small step backwards and suddenly I lost balance and ended up on the ground. I then realised behind me was a raised bit of wooden edging separating the gravels from the lawn. it was a only very small rise but once I'm off balance I could not recover.
It is so frustrating and annoying when you are thrown off by the slightest, normal things. I already had a fractured hip and wrist from a fall just from walking 1.5 years ago.
In this instance, I also felt humiliated in front of so many people. Not all of them know I have PD (I didn't announced it to the world yet). I guess they'll just think that I'm a clumsy Humpty Dumpty!
Ah, the challenges of living with PD.
