Fear, because if one has another fall then the fear of having yet another in the future is increased. And depending where I am or who was there, embarrassment. I know nobody wants you to feel embarrassed. And the first thing you tend to say if somebody has to help you up will be, "oh dear, I'm sorry about this." "No, no, it's all right. You mustn't feel sorry." But I do feel embarrassment if I've fallen. But usually it's just my dignity that's been hurt rather than any other part of me. Three words that I would associate with falls are catastrophic, scary, and reversible.
