Penmanship Problems

Hi Maggie, My name is Betty; and I, too, have OT. I also have essential or intential tremors of the hands, which causes difficulty writing. My penmanship used to be pretty good but now there are times I can hardly read my own writing. It is worse if I am under stress or if I am tired. As you mention...

Meeting Gloria!

Gloria:

I can definitely say you are NOT "old blue eyes", you are "sparkling blue eyes"; and I must agree with you, it IS a very special experience to meet someone else who has OT. You feel you are not so alone.

Getting the word out!

Hi Red, I, too, have thought about how best to educate and inform others, especially the neurologists. I visited my neurologist on Tuesday the 3rd and had all of Gloria's website printed as well as her posting of her experience with OT and the article from her site of research being done in India. I...

Movers and Shakers

Hi Lynda and Red, I just wanted to add, I too have hand and arm tremors ~ I think that is another of the problems we encounter with OT. While standing, when we all seem to have more tremors, it is difficult for me to sign anything. There are times I can hardly read my own writing; but I also have ET...

In fact, I have now met two of them and had the opportunity to dicuss OT in depth. We have the same problems and challenges and are trying to find ways best to cope. It seem...

Hi Lynda, I just read your posting about your trip to Bali in April, and you were asking about travel tips. We have traveled a bit and I understand your concern getting around in airports, etc. I know wheelchairs are available upon request. They will be available for you at curbside to the plane and...

Yes! Welcome Back Gloria!

Sue, I am also trying to work my way through this new forum; it may take a little effort, but it looks great. I hope all the original message board users continue to check the site and find it is now up and running. I have really missed reading about the challenges of others and how everyone is copi...

I am trying, but each day seems to bring another challenge. If anyone would like to share experiences with me, please do; either here in the forum or by email...
