Hi Jill

So sorry to hear of your fall and hope the headache is improving now. You are such an inspiration both to sufferers and carers alike and living alone makes it even more difficult for you. I know Tony wouldn't be able to manage living alone (but there again - he IS a man....). Just a bit of light-hearted humour to keep you going! As Ray says, the housing market is so depressed at the moment, but who knows? You may be one of the lucky ones and get a quick sale. Good luck and thank goodness you have such lovely neighbours and friends. They are what help to make the world go around.

Take care.

Lots of love..............SuzieQ xx

if your A & E is like ours, bet it was just as traumatic as the fall! Always long long waits. Hope you are feeling better x

Hi Jill

I was so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you are feeling a bit better. I know what its like waiting around A&E but it sounds like you have great neighbours and friends who are supporting you.

Take care of yourself Jill

Hi Jill...sorry to hear about your fall....thank goodness for friends & neighbours eh !!!! Glad it wasn't more serious than a cut & headaches, even though that's bad enough. Falling onto a stone floor is not a good thing to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care & keep smiling Love Hazel B xx

Hi Jill

Hope you are recovering well. Good luck with selling your flat, we had to move from Spain because Tony would fall on the ceramic tiles and off the terrace, no carpets or any neighbours, so our villa is up for sale too. Now at least if I had to call an ambulance or go to A&E they would speak English and I could explain about the CBD. I'm sure they thought Tony was drunk when we went to A&E in Spain he was so shaken after he fell crossing the road and dislocated a finger.

Take care

hi all

thanks 4 all your kind replies!!

one week on and i am much better H- not getting the glue out of my hair as yet but will be able to get it cut next week[-i have a great hairdresser who understands the problems too!)

Had two walks on my own with my 4 wheel frame back from the doctor's and from a parkinsons meeting - as the weather was good

Off to a crucial rugby league match on my own tomorrow by coach (st helens v wigan )so i hope to be ok....

i shall grab someone's arm when going to and from the ground

whilsi i still can i am determined to get out and the chpice is either a live music night or a rugby match

Hi Jill

I hope you're well recovered from that fall, and have avoided too many more since then ;)

Your drive, determination and enthusiasm are a great inspiration! I hope the rugby result went your way
