    I walk into walls, trees, signs, I trip all the time...It`s a wonder I didn`t kill myself yet. As martial artists out there know, hitting hard stuff toughens you up. I hit my head so many times it`s damn near indestructible by now, no kidding, my friends have running jokes about...

    Not Again...

    I seem to have made a habit out of taking the skin off my thumb with my fingernails, since I just did it for the third or fourth time. Anyway, the cut's healing now and the itching is driving me crazy. Does anyone have a way besides some itch-stopping cream or gel I could try...

    Nickname

    So much, I've earned the nickname 'Clumsy' from my Dad. It's all he ever calls me now. I wonder if he actually still knows what my name is, or has forgotten.

    Clumsy

    I am so clumsy, I actually think its genetic cause my daughter is the same way,. I bump into everything @ work, I constantly spill things @ home and I am a horrible dancer, although I hate to admit it. I don't know how a Latina can not have rhythm. But hey I am it.

    Hot Chocolate Accident

    Last night, my Nan made me a lovely mug of hot chocolate which I couldn't wait to start drinking when it cooled down. When it did finally start to cool down, I decided to go and enjoy upstairs in bed while reading my book. I followed my Nan up the stairs in pitch black but then I...

    Today

    I am not ordinarily clumsy. Today I forgot to screw the lid on my sugar dispenser. All of the sugar and the lid fell into my tea cup. It was the best tea I ever had.

    Spatial Confusion

    At least once a week I have to say ‘Third time lucky’ when I try to pick something up.  Usually, after a couple of casual and misjudged attempts I cross my eyebrows, snort a little from my nostrils, and try and actually focus on the task at hand.  Fingers, get a bit of a...

    I Am Very Clumsy...

    I've always been clumsy, since I was a kid. I've sprained my ankles so many times. I guess I'm lucky that I haven't sprained them recently, but I thought I did a few weeks ago. I'll never forget when I lived in an apartment building a few years ago, and I slipped on ice and...

    Yep

    Yeah, I'm clumsy. I can't really say How much of it is MS and How much of it is just me. I usually go in stores and knock things down. Doesn't do any good to pick them back up. It just makes things worse.

    I had to call the fire brigade

    after trying to make toast (toaster caught on fire), I have broken so many things because I am usually daydreaming and not focusing on where I am going/holding. yet I haven't broken a bone (win!) How do I be more graceful or do I just accept this is who I am? :P

    I've always been clumsy and still am. I don't know how many times I've tripped on my own two feet... in sneakers, on flat ground! I've jabbed my little baby toes on furniture so many times I'm surprised I haven't broken them yet. And I always seem to be the most clumsiest when I...
