Dexterity in the hands

Hi there
Is anyone, does anyone have problems with dexterity in their hands
This cold seems to make it so much worse I find, doing up my duvet buttons this morning was a joke fumbling with buttons. I recently bought a nice letter opener to save fiddling with well stuck down envelopes!
anyone got any helpful tips or little gadgets they use to make menial tasks easier?

just little fiddly things with cold hands are sometimes awkward

I have general weakness in my arms and i cannot hold a pen anymore with my right/writing hand.

I think a lot of people have problems holding a pen these day, not just us!
Not many people have a reason to use a pen these days, so it’s lack of practice. 🙄

As i am a designer it is not good that i cannot hold a pencil/pen or brush.

Is your left hand ok @openminded ? I have issues on my left hand side and im left handed so for the last year ive been practicing writing with my right hand. it looks like a 7 year old kid who just learned how to do joined up writing but its legible , sorta.
im gonna keep practicing though!

@openminded I seem to have a problem with my arm strength, seems to be limited to my wheelchair though. I’ve never had much upper body strength mind.

@loulou I find shirt buttons a nightmare, silly fingers.
