Hi all. I was walking back home yesterday from dropping my kids off at school, when I got what I call my marshmallow legs. I was already having a lot of pain, and probably should not have walked them, but it is just around the block. Anyway, they just wouldn't hold me up anymore and I took a very bad fall onto the concrete. When I tried to move to get up, I kept crying out in pain because my right ribs and hip where in pretty bad shape. Someone who had driven by, stopped and called 911. At the hospital they took x-rays, which came back fine, and said that I had soft tissue injuries and bruising. Besides venting, because I found the whole thing frustrating and humiliating, I do have a question. I know that some of the people here on DS use canes and walking sticks. Would using one have kept me from falling? When my husband got to the hospital I told him I should never be allowed in public again in life. I would like to know if there is something I can do to make me feel that I have some control over my body. I'm crying now because it terrifies me to be weak. If some of you could let me know what works for you I would be very apprecitive. Thanks
