I'm still standing

The other day I was transferring back to my chair, and for some reason -- not on purpose -- I let go of the grab bars I was using to move.

Of course, I fell. I still have a big scrape on my leg from that fall.

But just for an instant, I was not only standing but I was also not holding onto anything. It was one of the coolest things I have felt in ages.

I can stand now, as long as I have bars or countertops or rock walls or poles to balance me. It has been years since I have not used my hands to stand, whether using a cane, walker or just grabbing walls.

I won't try it again on purpose, but it was a pretty amazing sensation to not be holding something but to still be standing.

Ok... First thing I thought of was that this remind me of K hanging from her legs ( around my waist) and then just letting go to get down and landing on her head. I am glad you are ok.

Dude, I can imagine that you really loved the sensation, but next time you might have a big gash in your head :-)

I did not mean to do it.
