Weak legs*

Has anyone felt like they were going to fall before getting up. When I get up off the couch I try to schedule how I'm going to fall to where I won't hurt myself. It sounds weird but after hitting the ground a few times it's something I've gotten trained in my mind. Any thoughts on this. Read More
