    Neuropathy in hands: Hint

    Peripheral neuropathy in my hands made it difficult for me to button a blouse or shirt. I wore mostly turtle necks until a friend suggested that I try this. It worked!!

    Before you put on your shirt, button all the buttons almost up to the neck. Leave enough unbuttoned (1 or 2) so you can slip the shirt on over your head. Duh!

    It's a lot easier buttoning buttons when you're not wearing the shirt. Leaving only one or two to do battle with when you've got the shirt on certainly beats doing battle with all of them. I hope this helps someone.
