How many times have I sat in a public toilet and not been able to find the end of the toilet paper, so much so I have to allow extra time to go. I have asked my family to always make sure the end of the toilet paper is hanging diwn to make it easier, but they sometimes forget. It is bad enough trying to tear it off when it is down!
O hands of mine are failing me so much!
Days when my fingers won't even register on my phone screen. Trying to undo a jar or bottle with a rubber grip and still struggling. Trying to hold an electric toothbrush at the right angle and not stab my gums!
Even just trying to splash water on my face and not flood the floor. Trying to wash my hair with the shower spray and my angle is wrong so the curtains get washed too! (only a small bathroom).
Even washing dishes I end up with soap suds down the cupboard and on the floor.
Thank goodness for pre chopped vege or I would be all day trying to cut them up!
Even using my corldless vacuum I can't quite get it at the right angle so the handle gets caught in my sleeve.
O poor hands of mine. what it is to have arthritis! At least I can still ride a motorbike with thick gloves and heated grips!
Although frustrated I laugh at what I do badly.
Always look on the lighter side of life!
This has tajen me a while to type as I kerp missdng the letters! LOL
