Had my first real fall last night. I was standing at the kitchen counter fixing toast, next thing I knew, I was on the floor with my dog. Don't know what happened, it happened so suddenly. I wasn't feeling lightheaded or anything, just one second I was standing up, the next second, I was on the floor.

Now I'm worried about standing up at work. Am I going to fall down there too? Are people going to laugh at me? What if I hit my head or hurt myself?

I'm interested to know how others...
