Weekly Smile Week 50 – My Depression has broken

I haven’t had much to smile about the last few weeks. It has been bad, but my depression has finally broken. I am smiling now as I am cleaning and unpacking my room from March when my kids made me move downstairs due to my falling. FYI it didn’t stop the falling, I am just not falling down the stairs. 🙂

    I’m glad the depression has finally broken! I hope the sky looks a bit more sunny (figuratively) now.

    Ah, falling! Hard as it is, we just have to focus, be aware as we move. Falls are so darn easy, the older we get and so hard to recover from! Get out of bed or a chair, slowwwly. If there is a step up to get into the house then you need to get a grip on something as you make that move. Annoying stuff to remember and do, but better safe than sorry. Hooray for the not here anymore depression!

      Thanks Flo. Falls seem to be happening daily and getting harder to get up. My dad mentions my weight as if I didn’t know that.

        I am not convinced that being overweight causes falls. It’s just that we seem to need to help our bodies remember something they used to do on automatic, that is, to recognize when we are tilting too much to one side or the other. Adaptations are needed for lots of changes that happen to us over time. Making sure you have something sturdy nearby helps. Don’t know if we’re in need of a walker, just yet, but that might be a solution. While I think of it, how about tomorrow? Hopefully, by the time we venture outside the snow and ice should be melted or melting. Let me know.

    I’m glad you’re not falling down the stairs anymore! I have to figure out why I keep falling. I lose my balance. Not dizzy. Just lose my balance and bump into things and people or fall.

    I’m also glad your depression has lifted. It makes living so much easier!
