Most fellow PD people have one or two handy tips for dealing with or reducing some of the symptoms they experience. Others may find this knowledge helpful, or it might give them fresh ideas to try, so if anyone has any tips that work for them maybe they would like to share them here.
I find the intrusive effect of my arm tremor( (especially when relaxing or watching TV) is reduced when I rest that arm slightly away from my body on something supportive and soft like a cushion or folded sweater. Or a fold of duvet in bed.
When in an anxious, shaky patch I can sometimes distract myself with a book, puzzle or even a basic chore. This can bring everything back to a more manageable level fairly quickly.
Shopping was made easier when I changed my purse and handbag for something simpler and more structured. Out with the fashionable floppy bags. And if it’s busy I make sure I have loose money in my hand ready, then slip the change in a handy pocket to sort later. My sister did suggest using a card to pay but I know I would get stressed worrying that I may loose it!
Look forward to hearing any ideas to try. Hope someone joins me in this thread Daffy
