There are many different kinds of falls-economic, mental, physical & spiritual.I was labeled a "Fall Risk" the first time I went to the hospital for what was eventually diagnosed as Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, a progressive, auto immune disease.In a few weeks, I went from healthy to being an invalid and eventually almost completely paralyzed. With the help of God, loving family and friends, and modern science, I have begun to recover.
