Handwriting difficulties

Handwriting difficulties

Ugh, I'm really just venting. I had to write an important number down and of course, when I needed it, I could not read it.

Does anyone else have this annoying problem?

I am very frustrated with my once beautiful handwriting looking like hieroglyphics - illegible and unreadable! I used to love sending cards to people. Now it can take me up to an hour to write “Dear ..........” and a one line message and “with love from etc”. The worst thing is when I try to correct my writing and use lots of TIP-EX to cover it up & re-write! I have had to tear up many cards & start again. I’m rather dreading doing my Xmas cards. Just a couple of tips- it helps me if I rule pencil lines into the card and then write slowly & carefully, aiming for big writing. I then rub out the pencil lines. Also it helps if you know exactly what words you want to write. I often type out what I want to say on my iPad first & then copy or print out text & stick it into the card!

When my handwriting starts getting smaller I break out some big paper and write each letter, filling the page with that letter. Uses up a lot of paper, but seems to help.

I have also lost my ability to sign my name, fill out deposit slip, work on spreadsheets, etc. I am by education and profession a #'s person and PD has seriously impeded my life. Historically I am right handed, and have lost 95% of the use. I have slowly come to depend on my left hand to use such items as my iPad to guide me through my web pages, etc. Fortunately, I have that. I am sure that I am one of the more fortunate, given the problems faced by many more. I am fortunate to have experience my past years and thank God for his many gifts. Stay strong and keep your faith in our good Lord.🙏
