Who else finds it a nightmare getting socks on and off?

    Quite a few of us, it is a nightmare but they are useful things in the cooler months. There are gadgets around but I don't know how useful they are. DD

    Indispensible as far as I'm concerned. No sock aid: no socks. You can buy them in any disability shop, on or off line. I was given mine by my hospital.

    How are you doing, Pink? I guess you finally got off to sleep?

    if I don't have to go out I amble around the house in mens sport socks as they are big and loose and easy to get on and of as I struggle even with the gadgets so I made my own gadget which is just stick with two bent nails hammered in. one gadget for each hand. I use these socks for bed socks too for the same reason.

    Good idea lululu - I never thought of wearing oversized socks but then I am relatively new to all this.

    I find socks and tights a nightmare but socks are that much easier than tights. I will look out for that gadget :))
