  1. I have CMT, do you have any recommendations on cooking utensil s? I have lost a lot of muscle and use of my right hand. Potatoes peepers, can opener, knives ECT. I gave up on buttons and snipers. Thank you, so glad I found your log tonight.

  2. Great informative post thanks, I have sent some of the kjnks to my parents to see if it’s worth getting my Grandad some of these things to help him keep his independence. The zip extenders would be a great help for him.
    Thanks for sharing, Helen
