ARE YOU ALL READY TO
hope you are well. I've stopped trying on clothes in store because as you say its a traumatic experience. I've seen me trying to get something over my head and being stuck!!
I now buy them, take them home and try them and return if not suitable. If I'm not in my home town shopping then I make sure the store has a branch near me.
I must admit I shop from home and buy many items from that well know shopping channel who offer 30days on returns, this way I can try things on in the comfort of my own home and if they don't fit or suit me I send them back...simples.
Don't stress yourself out it is energy wasted. and by golly we all don't need the hassle.
I simply refuse to humiliate mmyself anymore, i do however always take time trying shoes on since otherwise it is a coplete waste of money. These are my most important purchase since I need to be glued to the floor.
Like everyone says I now shop for things for him to try at home and make sure I get a larger size to make things easier for him . He does wear a lot of waistcoats and Gilets . much easier to get on and off He hates wearing a coat especially if he has to put it on and take it off in front of other people .
The stress make it worse for him .
I tell him not to think about it but thats easy for me to say isnt it ..
Also M & S have been very helpful when I have asked for assistance with dressing - not over fussy but just the support I required. Hope that gives some ideas to Parkie friends x
Take care every one
I have always got hot in shops, with all the lighting, and found trying on tiresome and slow, but it is much worse now, with the PD. I fumble with my handbag and the hangers and my stick and usually drop something, which makes me even more flustered. These days the slightest exertion makes me perspire so much from my head that it drips down my neck or onto my glasses. I am not sure if that is due to the PD. I always got hot and sticky, but not so much from my head in the past. My fringe gets saturated and I have to comb it back, where it dries stiff because of the salt.
Like others above, I buy most of my clothes from catalogues, but with some things you can't tell if they fit unless you try them on.
I changed even the type of colours. More bright colours, yellow orange, white of course, NO BROWN, little black, NO GREY.
If you go with your husband/wife tell him/her to seat and be patient.
Hi everybody, many years passed away . I'm 62 yrs now and about shopping
1.I like places where Im not feeling stressed or hurried up.
2.When I go for shopping, I become exausted very fast so I ask somebody to come with me, like my sister or my husband.
3.Im wearing always colours like red, white , violet . blue, dark blue , orange, Black for some special occasions, NO brown, NO grey (these colours are not positive for me )
4. My question for the forum is :What kind of shoes do you mostly use for winter time? I will be pleased if somebody will answer me.I need light warm and confortable shoes and it is not so easy to find shoes with all these qualities.
Try Reiker or Hotter. They are expensive but not much more then Clarks these days.
