E074 Falling Down and Dusting Off w/Mary Rogers

Spread the word about Experience 50!

Ouch!There are few things so humiliating as falling down while walking after the age of 8. At 53, the pain is more than physical.

Yep, I fell down, twisted my ankle between two bad sections of sidewalk and ended up drawing a crowd and being whisked off to the emergency room. The doctor’s biggest concern was my plummeting blood pressure and the fact that I was so dizzy from the pain.

I wasn’t skydiving, or mountain biking. I was WALKING. Good Lord.

The result: I have a cast on my broken right arm/wrist, swollen twisted up ankle, other wrist bruised and tender, a messed up elbow and a nasty skinned knee. You’d think I’d been in a car crash.

Amazingly, I have a new insight to share in this episode on why the elderly get cranky and how we can take better care of our bones.

Sigh. I’ll be myself in about 6 weeks. The show must go on.
