Dealing With Chronic Pain #7

Hello, boys and girls. I'm hoping that this day is treating you tolerably well. I have happy news, well it is to me, my Adsense was approved of which I had no doubt but I'm making my thanks to Jeremy Crow over at the Whacko Blog and Tim Clark at Life Explained for inviting me to guest post.

Then I'd like to thank all you kind bloggers and lovely readers who have read, shared, and taken the time to encourage me in my comment section. I have grown fond of all of you for each of you are very unique.

Last but not least my husband who is almost as familiar with all of you as I am often laughing over a humorous post or helping me when I reach a blind spot.

Let's get started shall we. This section will be about DRESSING. I may split the tips in half or thirds depending on my hands and wrists for there are quite a few of them.

DRESSING

1. Use the dresser drawers that are easiest to reach.

2. Lower the rod in your closet or get a closet organizer to bring clothes within easier reach.

3. It is safer and easier to pull underpants and trousers up when laying flat in bed, if balance or mobility is a problem. Graduate to a chair.

4. Shop for clothes with dressing in mind. Look for easy-to-reach fasteners, front openings, and elastic waistbands loose enough to be pulled over the hips.

5. Look for clothes with Velcro or elastic instead of buttons.

6. Replace the buttons on your garments with Velcro. Move the buttons to the top part of the opening for decoration.

7. Bras can be fastened in front and then turned around and pulled into place, or buy front-opening bras.

100 Exquisite Adjectives
By Mark Nichol

I love words and came across a list of them. I'm going to add a word a day to my posts as long as I don't forget.

Word #23 Efficacious: producing a desired effect

In a sentence: I was very efficacious at making our wedding cake.
