Can anyone explain what happened yesterday.
I have been put onto an ongoing balance programme at a local day hosp----its very embarrasing being picked up by the drivers who used to take my clients from work with me as the escort--
I was taken for an assessment LAP round the hosp!!!!!! which to be fair I did,albeit a slug overtook me.
I was given an hours rest and then started on a balance assessment. I felt I was doing quite well (even though I was holding the bar with two hands),but I was asked to turn and face the long corridor to attempt the heel to toe.
I then started walking backwards in random steps,I was holding the bar but kept stepping futher and futher back so I had to let go and continued staggering backwards. The nurse came to support me but no matter whether I thought about walking or read a poster as distraction my legs refused to do anything.
Then after a few minutes my legs came back so we just walked the length,as curiosity she asked me to do the length backwards and its the best ive walked in months......what the hell is that about?
I was then horrified when I came home and slept for 5 hrs,I am the best Ive been for months but oh boy did fatigue hit home.
I scared me into thinking I will never hold down a job again..and I guess walking backwards well is not going to help much in life.
Any thoughts much appreciated
