@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member - my backspace key is what I use for dexterity practice. I get a LOT of practice. It also teaches me patience. I find that when I have a bit more of it, I am not frustrated or in danger of going 'off' suddenly (this is more and more a problem). Plus, I don't have to stop and read every word to be certain I didn't leave a misplaced letter...or two...or more...

I use the backspace key a lot as well, depending on what time of the day or if I’m feeling stressed my hand has a tendency to shake and jerk. I agree that it’s a lesson in patients with myself.

The practitioners have reservations about using cannabis products because many of the pharmaceutical drugs used for Parkinson's effect the same part of the brain and the medical benefit is compromised in some way. I found that the THC was greatly enhanced by my Parkinson's medication. I didn't know there was THC in the product and because I was not expecting it, the high was somewhat frightening until I realized what it was.

Is You Backspace Key Your Friend???
My right hand shakes, I'm right handed. My finger doubles letters all the time. I hit the backspace key more than I type. Does anyone else have this problem?
Lance. 😷🤣🙏🏻💙
