number of falls knocking my confidence
i have mild cerebral palsy but it dont seem so mild now i am 32 and have always been active but a few months ago i had a bad neck i couldnt move it for about 2 weeks this led to me having a feeling of being light headed which led to numerous fall where i couldnt get up and one really bad experience of nearly being run over . just after that i suffered a bad back which put me out of action for a week due to this i have stiffened up a lot and developed a fear of crossing the road i feel i have lost all my confidence. i went to the docs he prescibed me with baclofen to loosen me up but dont seem to of helped. i have a very supportive family they help by letting me hold on to them when walking but i want to get back to the way i was have been thinking of getting a walking aid does anyone know of which one to go for or if i should get one in the first place?? This situation is making me feel so anxious im afraid that i will end up not going out at all any advice would be most greatfully received. sorry for the rambling x
