Still Have A Hard Head

Rate this question


Papa

Question

I have been falling down more often, but I can usually catch myself, or make the fall not so painful. Tonight, I stumbled, and tripped over a water spigot. I hit both knees and elbows on the concrete sidewalk, plus my forehead. I'm starting to feel like these people screaming, I've fallen and I can't get up :rolleyes: . Thank goodness I have a hard head, but that is the way we come in Harlan County. The Parkinson's is really getting me down.

Hello Papa,,,, The Lord bless and keep you. Try and keep a note of the event and any little digital picture for your RO. Just so you keep a record of it. and let the doctor and the nurses know about it . if you dont you may forget about it and it would not help you. god Bless NEVER GIVE UP ...... Lord Bless and keep you. (Psalms 84:11) C.C.

Papa,

I'm so sorry you have that dreaded disease.

The elbows and knees are a real bear but I'm sure glad to

NOT see a broken wrist as that is really bad.

Now let me ask you, just how many years has that water spigot been there ? :-)

If you don't have one, it might be time to consider getting

an alert bracelet or necklace that will alert a monitoring company

when you are in need of help.

I feel sure it can even help, an old hard head in Harlan County.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.

Hang in there Papa, The Late Great Cawood Ledford loved Harlan County and he advertised it often.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.
