Dropping a cup, how did that happen?
Dropped another cup, weird, shake my hands and look at them, they look normal…
Hmm, my left hand is weak, weird, I hadn’t noticed the hollow area at the base of my thumb.
Now my right hand is weak, what the hell.
After ALS diagnosis the hands experienced the following:
-More muscle loss
-Weak to the point of not able to grasp a tissue
-My fingers don’t respond to my brain
-I can’t bend them
-Can’t spread them
-Can’t open them
-My two index fingers are stuck straight
-My palms are flat
-My wrists are weak (hands flop when I move)
Now my hands are useless, so my family are literally my hands.
I miss my hands, even though I still have them. I miss what they used to do for me and for others.
