Week 122 of therapy and more news

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

This week in therapy we discussed several things one of which was the fact I had fallen the same day I had the appointment with my therapist. I spoke of how again I was dizzy with a case of vertigo and when I started to walk I tripped over a piece of carpet and basically went flying and hit the floor really hard. This time it took less time to get up. I however am concerned with the idea of falling again and just the fact of me being so top heavy is an issue in and of itself. We also discussed the bariatric surgery. I am no longer against it anymore I just want to be ready for it. We also discussed the fact that I have found another sponsor and I am just waiting for her to contact me right now. I am not going to rush her right now since she is taking care of her mother at the moment. I will be going to be seeing my therapist in person as of next week now which is so nice after the lock down.

    Sorry about the vertigo and your fall - not fun as I have had both. When I fell 5 years ago I had to have 6 fireman come and lift me up and I was only 270 pounds - they assured me not to feel embarrassed as most of their patients that need to be lifted up are well up in the 500 - 600 pound range - but it still was embarrassing - and the fear of falling again is really frightening. I now walk with a walker if out for a long walk - and in the house just walk very carefully - thankfully no carpets.

    Praying for you - that your new sponsor will work well for you and that your visit with the therapist goes well.
