Saturday not a good hand day.



Friday was brilliant hand day compared to yesterday when I could not take my earrings off or put the Baclofen in the pillbox nor open my specs case.

Thought Friday was too good to happen everyday.

Have not been able to put my earrings in my ears for nearly a year now.

Can not use tweezers any more nor nail cleaner nor cut or file my nails.

Can not read books and magazines nor open letters without tearing them open with my teeth and even then getting the letter out of the torn envelope is near impossible.

For not being able to use your fingers for such fine detail work, you seem able to do so many things. It is encouraging that even with such difficulties you are able (and willing) to get out and enjoy yourself. I hope today is a good day.

I'd give you a big ol' "high five", but my hands are numb...and it doesn't sound like YOUR hands are up for the challenge either...

Thinking of you and hoping there is something wonderfully joyful in your near future...

I haven't been able to clip my own nails in years, left fingers curl more each year. MS settles in, but I keep focusing on all I still can do. Sometimes that is the best we can do. Alway remind yourself that things may get better. Dark days will get lighter.
