Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor
More stories about living with Essential Tremor, things in our life that we all take for granted become huge monumental task for anyone living with a movement disorder.
I'm assuming shaving is as crappy for guys as it is for us ladies. I call it my bi-weekly blood-letting in the summer and in the winter, it's called "shaving? what's shaving?" lol I also develop wild tremors/spasms in my feet while standing on a ladder and them I drop the screw or nail I'm trying to fix, so I have try to climb down and pick up everything I dropped, go back up again, and proceed to drop more stuff and do it all over again. Also I never do anything like this alone anymore so I feel like a wussy cuz I have to be watched like a kid even though it's for my own safety.
That lack of control and feeling like a "normal" person is hard for me. A normal person can hop up on a step-stool and put up a curtain rod without it becoming a epic episode, needing spotters and 10 screws in your mouth instead of the 4 you really need. Lack of control=frustration for me and I know it is a huge issue for men as well.
