    Spray deodorant

    As my fingers weaken I am finding it more difficult to use spray deodorant. Does anyone know of an easy to use brand? 😁xx

        I knew what you were going to ask by the heading lol. I'm the same re spray type. I just don't get the same exotic smells from a roll on πŸ˜…

          Another vote for roll ons. I remember having trouble pushing up those stick type deodorants, too hard to twist.

          When I couldn't unscrew lids, I used the Sanex roll on which handily sits upside down in its (unscrewed) lid, so it didn't dry out πŸ‘πŸ‘

          Of course now my lovely helpers apply it for me πŸ₯°

            Ellie in a fan of sanex due to ease of use. Matthew at least you haven't the problem of how you can't get an epilator under your arm pit. This condition is so ruining my ablution standards🀣

                  Sure that's half the fun, not...

                  I had my pits waxed so often there's barely any left to pull now πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ₯°

                    ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

                    I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

                      Sadly I can't use a roll on as my right arm won't reach my left armpit. You couldn't make it up. πŸ˜”xx

                          What do your carers do? That's a 5 second task for them and that's for both pits 😏

                          Use them, they're there to help you πŸ‘πŸ‘ What are always saying about acceptance 😏

                          Use them, save your energy for pleasant things.

                          Love ya 😘😘

                            The first visit is sometimes half hour but after that they are on 15 minutes medicine calls which involve playing on their phone while I struggle with syringes and bottles. πŸ˜±πŸ˜πŸ“±πŸ‘€xx

                              matthew55 30 minutes for your 1st call is never enough....outrageous they are on their phones😠
                              You need to ask for an urgent review...get your care plan sorted to suit you & just what help you need. Including deodorant!!
