occupational therapy a must again

so my right hand is still shaking when I try to use it..writing, hold the phone, and even eat. I now have to try to use my left hand...eating is the most difficult. It embarrasses me to eat in public struggling to eat. At a Chinese restaurant yesterday I even cried a little,,,or was that two days ago. I think it was. Still it is so annoying that I have to retrain my body to do "simple" things like eat, write, and even tie a shoelace.
The best part is that my insurance does not deem me qualified to get occupational therapy because they said "OF MY AGE". ARGH!!! Monday I have to try to set up another appointment with my primary care doctor and see what she can do. MS has a new term. Mostly Stupid because this disease is so hard to treat because it affects everyone differently.

  1. Traci switched to the Mellen Center for treatment and they gave her occupational therapy. I went along one time and I observed that almost everything they did was exactly what is done in beginner Yoga classes. The exercises were shown to her twice then they gave her a picture guide to do them at home. Here is a pdf that has the same exercises they made Traci do.

    If I come by more I'll send them.
