3 days ago · Facial fasiculations and drooping eyelid in Brain & Nervous System

Ok, Bright Wings here.
Thanks Lisa.
I read this and bells started to ring in my head.
I am an old Rn.
What have the doctors and reports said???
Lisa, you know me, I don’t get excited but I am feeling a sense of this has to be checked out now. .

Billie, Good for you.
No one ever wants to have a stroke, I see you trying to take your life back, just like I am.

Laughing out loud! My ballerina moves are so I don’t fall down, never thought anyone would like to hear about it.

I do not feel the bottom of my feet. I can only feel the rim of my feet. If I am going to go off balance, it is from either shoulder. Meaning that is the way I will pitch to either side.
Ok, so do this exercise with me. Stand up and take a small step, you will notice you still have both feet flat on the ground Now with your back foot, allow you heel to raise and leave your big toe mashed down.
So now you are standing flat with one foot and balancing on the big toe of the second foot.
If I am feeling stable, I lift my toe and allow the second foot to naturally move forward. If I feel any thing off balance I simply pause with that very important back toe keeping me balanced. Sometimes the toe is mashed with my heel raised, oftentimes I only notice I am off balance as I have only the tip of the big toe touching the ground. So I simply pause, often with only the tip of my toe touching.
Remember the hesitation step some folks use to walk down the isle of the church at a wedding??
So it’s like that, take a step and hesitate before you lift your second foot.
Any more signs of imbalance, I start to move my arms out from my sides. This gives me added balance.

I think I have been developing this for years. I hope this works for you. It certainly works for me. Bright Wings

If you go to Facebook, search for Cirque Du Flame. This is my circus.
The ringmaster is Phillip Swafford.
Message me, I will share my name so you can find me on FB. I have tried to post pics here but couldn’t do it.
Smiling so big.
The ringmaster told me, he would love me to join the Circus. I will bring the gift of laughter to the stage!! That’s who I am also. You guys just don’t get to see it. Cuz this is where I am serious!!
Sometimes, Grin.

Bright Wings checking in.
No falls, my balance can go off as I am walking but use ballerina like moves to counteract my being off balance. I go up on my big toe instead of swinging my foot forward. I will poss there as a ballerina as long as I need to. It saves me so many times. I realized I have been developing this for years.
I also throw my arms out to give me more stability as needed.
It takes practice. Keep going.

Now, please excuse me, this is no joke. I am going to go join the circus.
The fire Circus. I have acting in my blood.
I will share the gift of laughter, and also sneak some healing in.
It’s who I am.

Thanks Duchess,
Unfortunately the class is filled before we got the money in. So I am looking at Jan or February.
I had a huge melt down yesterday. Why? Cuz I finally rejoined Facebook. In 6 days I have 116 friends. I have felt so lonely yet all these people love me, or most of them. Really messed with my head.
