Hey--are you a KLUTZ like me?   I'm not "Mr. Coordination," and I really don't throw a ball very well, and it walking across a room as dangerous as ice skating?  Well take heart---you are NOT by yourself.   Some new research and show that some of us human being are simply born more accident prone than some others are.

Turns out that about 3 out of every 100 of us are twice as likely to do let's say something kinda clumsy than those who are NOT accident prone.   According to people in the know that do rehab with folks that have had a concussion or a brain injury---they say that being a klutz is a problem with your equilibrium and with your balance and inner-ear.  It's gets down to this---when you're trying to do more than one thing at a time--your brain is NOT processing things totally correctly.   So it causes you to be a bit clumsy.   At least now I know I was BORN that way.    Just call me "Mr. J.J. Klutz!"  (Today)
