Dropping things

Edited , 9 users are following.

I have been dropping things SO MUCH! Every day I drop at least 2 or 3 things. This evening as I was getting ready to put 7 new fish into my fish tank the bag they were in slipped out of my hand and splashed all over my office floor. There I was frantically scooping tiny neon tetra fish off the floor and into the tank.

My husband (kindly) mentioned it to me that he has noticed me dropping stuff a lot recently. I told him it was probably menopause. But of course now my anxiety is kicking in and I want to make sure this is indeed just this "lovely" time and I am not ill with some horrible deadly affliction that my mind wants me to think is happening.

Ugh! I just want this to be done.

    I drop things a few times a day. Usually Peri/Meno can bring out Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and you can drop things a lot. I hope this helps you.
