work around and fallback is confusing me :-(

i have a risk.

i accepted it and did active acceptance means planned for contingency
risk occurred
intial response (planned one, i.e contigency plan) to risk didnt go well so i switched to workaround (not a planned one).
workaround didn't go well i switched to fall back plan (Planned one) means ultimately went back to kind of avoid mode where in i change the project plan itself..

is this how it should be?

have gone through saket's all hangouts on risk for multiple times and this is the only concept in risk area at this moment which is giving me sleepless nights..

I replied to you other post hope that should clarify
we have discussed this in several other threads you may want to search then in forum

Fallback: is used if your contingency plan fails or is not effective
Workaround is for un identfied risks
