      Sometimes after a fall, I get down and stay down. I am usually upset with myself or the muscular dystrophy. I try to keep negative self-talk to a minimum, but anxiety can sometimes take over.

      After you fall, how do you make yourself feel better or not get into a sad state of mind? Do you allow yourself to feel bad for a little and then force yourself to change your mood? What sort of things uplifts your spirits?

      Today I fell coming in from the garage. I landed pretty hard on the doorway threshold, and luckily someone was home to bring me the indie floor lift. It helps me get off the ground without needing someone to pick me up, blessing the risk of injuring myself or the person trying to help me.

      I definitely understand how you feel – I get frustrated with myself and my MD when I fall or trip, and I let myself feel angry for a bit because I can’t snap out of it right away.

      I spend a lot of time when these things happen reminding myself that this is something in my life I can’t control, and that honestly helps mean a lot. I do try to focus on the things that I *can* control, like actively thinking about lifting my feet when I walk because that’s usually what makes me trip/fall.

        I think it is best if I don’t snap out of it right away and sit with it (pun intended). I believe nowadays in feeling what you feel in the moment but never letting it linger too long. “This too shall pass” is a motto I am trying to adopt.
