I am sure there will be a law soon that will prohibit woman with PD to carry a purse. I have been "BOOO'd in the grocery store more than once. You know that line where everyone is in a hurry and it is an unwritten law that the line must keep moving.
So there I am lifting my heavy purse with 17 compartments (for my pills) . I finally get the zipper down and open my bag. It is a large black hole uninviting and not user friendly .I sitck my hand into my purse and start to feel around. Used Kleenexes fly around me. A magazine picture lf a scantily clad couple falls to the floor (I wanted her haircut to show my hairdresser).
I am looking for my wallet. Then my entire purse falls to the ground and the lose change covers the floor from the exit door to the balloon section. Everyone falls to the ground to pick up money. My head is still in my purse. My hands are shaking now and the other 4 zippers aren't opening. I hear remarks from disgruntled customers standing in line behind me.
