Subject: Does anyone get so tired you end up falling over?

I seem to get very wobbly when I'm tired. Especially if i've done a bit too much activity during the day. Fall over on occasions for no aparant reason.. it's not blood presure etc.. had all that checked.. also I think it was Della who said her memory gets worse when she's tired.. mine does too.

My Memeory is crap, day and night, I can forget what ŽI did yesterday...I have to really try and remember, it may come back to me in say a few hours, seriously this is worrrying me.... I mentioned this to my gp once. and he said its depresion, but I am not depressed, I am on an anti depressant, for anxiety... does help, gives me some extra energy, If im not on it, I can fall into depressssi0n very fast.... hoever a lot has happened to me....but i dont ever feel depresssed, only when im having a flare up, or I neeed more ops etc..I never dall over tho Lynne, u shld mention that to the Rhuumy tho xx

Hiya Lynne, I definately get wobbly and feel light headed a lot,and my memory is shocking now compared to this time last year.
Could be the meds I guess.

Subject: Re: Does anyone get so tired you end up falling over?

hiya gals,
my memory is sooo bad these days too i missed 2 appt with the doctor this month which i had never done before and i went to the doctors yesterday for which i thought my appt was and i had got the wrong day. I felt like such a fool and i am constantly forgetting my kids appts and what i did the day before. The meds have helped me loads but i have the memory of a 70 year old not a 25 year old lol. Wonder if it's because i am more tired that makes me forgetful, who knows eh... very clumsy too i have bruises everywhere constantly walk into doors and fall up the stairs and down, think i need to be wrapped in bubble wrap lol
Anyway moan over hope your all having a good day

LOL Val, Jill, Amelia,
What is it about us!!! I am exactly the same! sometimes i feel like i have an invisable mischevious child following me around aggravating me and making obstacles for me to trip, or bang myself or lose something there could be a tiny bit of water on the floor and yep i will slip.I am as blind as a bat now and all, I have to have my reading glasses plus a x 7 magnifying mirror to pluck my eyebrows,( has anyone ever looked through one of them, wow what I shock I had I look horrendous) lol.
And I can have say a spoon stiring something, and the next nano second its gone!!I have to get another one out Crazy!! lol

Hi all, thought I would chip in too. I misjudge turning corners and bang into whatever I am trying to go around!! My husband just shakes his head!! I have put food in the bin and rubbish in the fridge several times!! Put golf balls in the oven once, don't know why!! (No I wasn't going to cook them) I work full time and if I don't write messages down I forget all about them, have forgotten to look at message pad once or twice so haven't passed messages on anyway. I can't blame the change as I think I have finished with that!! My family tell me it's my age!!

That's a really difficult question for someone outside to answer. I hear that you are scared Jill, I would be too, and your worried about your kids and the recovery time, and all the pain. I actually think you answered the question yourself with the last line of your post. sorry hun for all your worry and anguish.. we'll be here to listen to you.

Guilt is one of the hardest feelings to deal with, not only do we beat ourselves up about our illness ( as if it doesn't give us enough pain all on it's own!!), we also beat ourselves up for not being able to do things for our loved ones. (something we can't change.) Guilt's got us on both fronts. Take care hun xx
