than "normals"? My husband brought this up after I ran into the gate the other day, injuring my rib. I just wondered if it was only me, or have others noticed this?

You re definitely not alone in the clumsiness, Naddya ~~~

I am not nearly as steady on my feet as I once was as well as I trip over things that aren t there .

I also tend to cut it short going thru doorways etc. and end up bruising my elbows/arms . Sad

Well i definatley am, ... im always dropping things, walking into doors walls etc, im always covered in bruises, even bang my head on the wall routinley !! have no idea how W00t

And until i joined this site, i really just thought i was clumsy, my husband always says, what have you dropped now, when he hears a crash and expletives coming from the kitchen.....LOL

The only thing is, that if im on my own i cant get down to pick it up or clean up the mess, so he comes home to the floor covered in stuff Silly

Clumsy, clumsier, clumsiest!! Smile I used to be as agile as a cat. No more. I can't seem to figure out how close things are any more. Like, I hit my milk glass the other day with my hand and knocked it over. Now , I havent' spilled my milk since I was 4 or 5 yrs. old. And doorways must be smaller now too. Laughing

Boy, do I get that. I am very adept with my feet, have been for years. The hubs used to say I was the "monkey girl" LOL I can pick up most things with my toes, but it's harder now to get it up to my fingers. LOL

yep! at least it's true for me, I walk into walls and trip over flat empty spaces. lol broken I too use my feet and toes to clean up spills or scoot things over to be picked up by someone else, cuz I falll over when I bend over. My kids joke that I walk like a drunk and I don't even drink!!
