One day I had finished lunch and was going back out to my when suddenly I could feel myself falling. As I tumbled down the stairs, I was not able to stop myself and I rolled over and over down a whole flight of stairs. As I lay there hearing the concerned voices of friends, I wondered had I missed a step again? This was becoming too common. A nurse present told me I hadn’t, that my legs had given out under me and used a diagnosis that was scary, but she would be helpful in describing the fall to physicians. I was ready to work out what was going on so I could end the series of falls.
