Word of the Day – amain

IMG_1421Today’s word is amain.  This is an adverb describing going at full speed or all out.

As in the case a lot of the time with my Ataxia,  once I get myself going, it’s not easy to stop.  This reminds me of a time before I was actually diagnosed when I was out exploring with some friends.  I started walking toward a large cavern to get a better look and lost control as I started “running” straight for the treacherous cliff.  A friend grabbed me, saving my life!  One of the activities that I do in my physical therapy sessions is to walk very fast in the hall but then switch quickly to slowing down.  Momentum seems to be a very controlling factor in this Ataxia.
