Rocking, Slipping and Sliding

Anywhere I sit, I slide.  It doesn't matter if I'm in a recliner, church pew, dining chair, stool, steps or bed I slide. It doesn't matter if I have a stool or my feet touch the ground.  

I'm sure I've had this since a child because I can remember vaguely, my mom nagging. I remember her words, "Sit up! Stop slouching!  Quit rocking!'

I used to rock side to side all the time as a child and I was constantly told to stop it. Teachers would pass by and put their hand on my shoulder. It was their way of telling me to stop discreetly. I find myself rocking only when I am dead bone tired now.

When I sit, I start by a nice straight up posture. But eventually I slide.  In a chair or pew or stool I am more aware because eventually I could land on my floor butt first. I'm constantly having to push into a straight sitting posture. 

In my recliner or bed, again I start in a nice and straight position, but its inevitable that i will be on half my back. 

I've been trying to consciously figure out why and how I do this.

Who knows?! I guess it is just me!

Until next time..

  1. I can only guess it related to muscle tone and your CP. Is this something you could do physical therapy for to strengthen certain muscles. With that being said, I think slouching is a very common things that most people do. I know I do.

    1. Maybe you are right. It's only a nuisance to be. I've been through a lot of physical therapy in my days. It's jut my butt slides. I agree most people slouch, when I stand it is due to my cerebral palsy. I remember my mom always said stand up straight to encourage me to do the best posture possible. I think as I got older, it came to a point where she realized that is the best I could do. It was just one of those things that I have really noticed lately. Thanks so much for your input and visiting!

  2. There are bigger problems out there to in the world!! You can slouch all you want!

    1. Yes, there is Ms Barb. It is so odd that i notice things all of a sudden!
