    Milestone!

    I seem to have reached a milestone in that I was trying to clip some papers together this morning with a bulldog clip and could not open the bulldog clip with my right hand.

    This means my right hand is now where my left hand was in 2015 when I started trying to find out what was wrong with me.

    I still have some power in my right hand, of course, and a little bit of pinch grip, but the strength is slowly going.

    Not a happy milestone to reach

    Hi Andy,

    Sorry to hear about the deterioration of your right hand. Legs are not so bad because you can use a wheelchair to get around but hands are a whole other matter.

    Sending electronic hugs.
