I can relate to the meltdown,, I am I year postie and have slight balance issues still,, like Clarice said I have learned where my vulnerability is so try to avoid too many situations on my own and always hold onto something,, I even take a grocery cart even when going for one or two items just to hold onto it!
I was getting out of car just yesterday and wobbled as getting up curb and this guy looked at me and said something like "need a hand ?" And I just know he thought I was drinking or something just the way he said it even though he was just trying to be nice.,,,,,, I wanted to just get back in car but was afraid I might FALL off curb so didn't dare try that in front of him,,,thanked him and went on in store humiliated,,,,,,,
My AN and resulting surgery have turned me from a once very sociable, people person into a very introverted more silent person,,not something I am very proud of but has been hard to turn it around,, maybe more time.
Brewers7,, don' t know HOW you stand in a courtroom and try cases with some of the issues you have dealt with,,,good for you !!! Hang in there Upstate,,,count the good days and try to laugh at the bad ones,,,,,easier said than done some days,, huh??? Jane
