Time enough for mindful actions could prevent falling down. Time enough to
consider long term consequences could prevent downfalls. MIke Gargantua
"Drink always before the thirst and it will never come upon you. " There's
the right answer: prevention. Plenty of ways to prevent falling,
nonslip things in the bathroom, reduce medication (my case) to lower
dizziness, accompany the person, walkers of many types (cane at the very
least), proper shoes.
Problem "I am too young for these damned things. They are for old people.
I am not old." So we have a person who is willing to die to keep up his
denial.. Me - I don't care what people think.
