I thought of unicycle, which led to stilts, which led to thoughts about things I couldn't do when I was little.
Surprisingly, they were not a ton. I did a lot, not well maybe, but I did it.
- I was never able to walk on my eldest brother's stilts. My other brother, who also has FA, could.
- I could not use my sister's full-shoe roller-skates at all. They fit, but no balancce. I could use the clunky clip-on skates.
- I could not stand with my eyes shut, my knees bent and my arms in front of me. I remember reading that this was a good way to test your balance.
- I could not walk the balance beam at a local playground.
I chose not to do a lot, probably because I knew I couldn't, but those were four things I thought I could do and wanted to do. Oh well.
