Happy Holidays


I am heading to Scandinavia to celebrate Christmas with my family in a few days, so I just wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays.

I managed to fall outside my Dr's office Yesterday, and of course they had tomake a big deal out of it, and fuss over me. I just wanted to go home and hide. I have a few bruises (my ego most of all), but will be all right. It just made me feel very bad and down on myself, as my Dr and I had just talked about how I struggle with feelings of helplessness, and how I hate being at the mercy of other people. Oh well.....

I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season and new year. Maybe 2010 will be the year!

Re: Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to you as well -- and everyone that participates on this board.

NP, I am so sorry about your fall. I hope you have recovered some by now and aren't as sore. I know exactly how you feel on that one. Sometimes I think my main goal on a daily basis is simply NOT to fall.

Like you, I hate feeling dependent on people. It really stinks, but it's the reality of our situations. Try to keep your chin up and enjoy the holidays as much as possible.

I hope everyone has a happy, and very safe, holiday.

Re: Happy Holidays


Happy Holidays to all. NP....I know how you feel after a fall. Embarrassment, depression, frustration. Every time I fall it ruins the rest of my day emotionally, even if I'm okay physically. Surprisingly (knock on wood) I fall less now that I'm worse. I know it's because I never let my guard down. Way back when, I wasn't expecting to fall. Anyway....I feel for you.

Enjoy your trip and your holiday. (PS - Many MDs are linked to Scandinavian heritage. You probably know that by now).

Take care,

Re: Happy Holidays

Hey Mark,

Yeah I know that a lot of MD's are linked to Scandinavia, especially LGMD 2I, which is the one I have.

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season!
