Things a fibromite can do with one finger.....any other ideas lol

With only using one finger you save so much energy, but some jobs may take a little longer. I made a lovely coffee before and then remembered I had some squirty cream that needed to be used up. Hands painful so this would be okay to do with one finger. So I squeezed the trigger, nothing. I squeezed again, nothing. So I used both my index fingers ad gripped the can and squeezed with all the might I could muster. Great job, I got it in the coffee, up the wall, on my top, all over the work surface and on the floor and the dog was having a wonderful time grabbing at the cream as it flew out and then he cleaned up the floor. I panicked when it shot out and forgot to let go of the trigger lol. Any other jobs you can think of for one finger that may just go wrong? xxxxx

switch them off in a storm - they explode if it causes a power surge I'm told.


I switch everything off ina storm hun except the freezer. That includes the xbox, much to hibbys annoyance xxxxx


well of course typing lol you can do wrong words hahah but can i put on here am not sure.

if you have adapted your phone to predictive txting (i so cannot do this) i use my iphone a lot and the words that i do wrong is unbelievable !

Fog and tiredness is over whelmings so thinking of things is difficult .

one finger jobs that go wrong

i stuck my hands with glue using one finger trying to use one hand to hold and put on the other and they stuck together and i really panicked thought nooo i will end up A& E lol with a nail and bottle of glue but i was lucky i pulled quickly but was left with glue all over my fingers and on my dressing table. This was just before christmas too so i never got the nails on after all.

spraying a can of freshner or perfume or body spray and doing the wrong way and before you know it its in your face, mouth nose and every where.

trying to release it when its new! but cannot fathom which way round .. some simple things can become tasks of their own i say.

i am actually trying to think of things i have done here but having a little issue haha.

ohh pulled a can ring on tins of food 'very difficult' and it going alllll over the floor and me.
