I am new to all of this and currently have no support but shall get that rolling after the end of all these holidays. I can only guess what might constitute ‘fatigue’ out of two issues that I get.
My knees go to jelly, and, if I don’t sit down, the jelly will melt and I will fall down, usually at the top of the stairs… well, collapse down is more precise… I just crumble down, and then fall backwards onto my back. Whilst crumbling, I have a violent, violent, violent pain in my right leg, and end up flat on the floor, unable to get up. Oh, the violent, violent, violent pain is what I had whilst jogging some 12 years ago, and what sent me originally to orthopaedics…!!!
After walking or standing for a short while, eg. making a banana sandwich, my back seems to bend sideways to the right, and I would fall, collapse down if I did not find a seat. I’ve got a perching stool in the kitchen for such moments. I think I’m supposed to perch on it whilst making the banana sandwich, but it’s not too comfortable.
So far, I don’t think that I feel dizzy, but I do describe myself as being ‘wobbly’. I dislike people trying to hold my arm to help me, because it more than likely will be cause me more ‘wobbliness’ not knowing what they are doing.
Steve… I can totally agree with you… “Take it slow, think carefully and know the limits”… No point getting frustrated with yourself; better to praise yourself for recognising the stopping point…
