I've Also Fallen
I was at work one day after my diagnosis with MS. I had the tingling in both my hands and feet. With my feet feeling the way that they were I still decided to wear heels (bad idea). I fell in my office and co-workers had to take me to Health Services and I was forbidden to drive after I got off from work.
That was a lesson learned the hard way. Now I have cute flats that I wear with my business suits, as well as sneakers for another option. You are absolutely correct, you have got to laugh at yourself rather than cry (because I've done a lot of that). But I now have the attitude that I have MS and I'm still here.
