Falling Down

Having MS for over 20 years, I’ve taken my share of falls.
Multiple Sclerosis will do that to you. MS throws your balance out of whack & binds your feet like your shoes are tied together.
My doctor will ask “Have you fallen recently?” To which I reply “Which day?”
I fall so often people think my aftershave is “Spic-N-Span.”
I fall so often when I floss I find carpet nap.
I’ve taken more tumbles than Simone Biles.
I’m the only guy I know who gets grass stains—on his shoulders.
My rear end has kissed the floor so many times I have rug burn on my butt.
Have I been injured? Oh of course. It’s all part of having MS.
I just gotta be more careful.
Keep moving my friends!

  1. Thank you for adding your Giggle Doug. Before my diagnosis I was such a klutz that I had the nickname Grace. Now I know that I had MS as an excuse- too bad I couldn’t use it then!!

    FYI Friends- Doug writes his own MS humor blog that a freaking riot! To get more giggles from Doug, check it out- http://www.myoddsock.com

  2. I always say ” I’m bowling for people” when I start to traverse the sidewalks & my drop foot acts up, then I trip & hit the NYC cement … Laughter is the best medicine for those moments !!!

    • That’s a riot Michele- thank you for sharing!! Feel free to add it to the Giggles page (tab is above) so more readers will see it. You have my attitude and man, I know it helps!!!

  3. I just tell people that the ground looked lonely and I wanted to give it a hug.

    I tripped on a piece of concrete that was 1/4 inch higher than the last square. My son’s reaction when he saw the concrete was, “Yep, that is a mom size tripping hazard.”

    My boss won my allegiance when I was telling him the story. I told him that I had tripped and that wasn’t bad because I trip a lot, but a student has tripped at the same place. His answer “Wo, Darla it is important if it caused you to trip.”

    Have a great day.

    • That’s a great one Darla! How old was your son when he came up with that? Classic! Thank you for checking out my blog, sharing that story and making me smile!
