I fell between 15 and 20 times yesterday. (and 4 times today already, several the day before yesterday, a few on Tuesday, and twice last Friday)
Because my hips and knees are SOOOO loose that the twitch/spasm/tremors are causing me to lose my balance and dislocate them.
I'll be standing, when I'm suddenly attacked by LOTS OF SHAKING (like it's my own personal earthquake) and BAM! there goes my knee(s) and/or hip(s).
I fall quite gracefully.
Really... I fell so many times, and it mostly went completely unnoticed. I am a master of landing.
The upside? I now have some sort of connection for my bad days with twitching. They correlate completely with my awful days for joint laxity; which in turn seem to be affected by my hormones, which is absolutely fun! I get to bleed, be crampy, bloaty, cranky, irritable, SORE, dislocatey and twitchy at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME.
I also found out yesterday that my cousin has a brain tumour, and she went for a biopsy yesterday to check if it's cancerous or not. It's in an inoperable part of her brain. So lots of anxiety and waiting there, too.
In times like these, I really just want to curl up and watch a 'fluffy' movie. One with a nice, pleasant story, and a lovely happy ending. With kittens, or something. Whilst eating a bowl of chocolate ice cream...
