falling

i have had an exciting morning = taxi to dentist for check up - teeth good despite my last check up when i had had 2 falls on my face and teeth = last DECEMBER = so good news as no more falls on the face since then and the teeth are good

i have 2 excellent 4 wheel frames for use outside and am never without my stick as my balance is so poor

AMANTADINE may be helping

i also have some great knee pads to protect my knees when i do fall )(always fwd never backward)

Hi Jill,

Glad your teeth are OK despite the falls on your face!

Where did you get your knee pads from? They sound like a great idea to help reduce injuries from falling.

Hi Jill

I now have a lovely vision of you breakdancing with the frames :) It's great that you're doing so well. I've always been boosted by your posts on the forum and think you'd be enormous fun to spend time with

All best wishes
