I do not mean maintaining your sense of worth, but when you have to be careful of walking on uneven ground because your balance mechanism does not work. That is what has happened to my husband. He can now grasp things a little, but if he turns suddenly, he will fall and his muscles are not strong enough to pull him up and I have to help. He says I do not understand, but I am not that emotional, and I do not have my heart on my sleeves so I do not react as he wants. But I was wondering how long will this go on. Will my husband regain his sense of balance, or will that be forever? And if he does, how long does it happen and is there anyway for him to get it back by exercise, etc?
