PTSD and newspapers

June 3, 2018 - 12:56 -- Admin

It doesn't matter how you got PTSD---mine was via my white collar workplace---it impacts on your every day. For many it's the fine tremble to the hands and inability to hold on to something that is a key fucking annoyance. Some lose their fine motor control, others have hands that open for no reason. Also, if your anxiety is up the trembles get worse which heightens your distress causing a feedback loop. I have all of that and more; yay!Newspapers, the hard copy kind, have thin psper. If you're afflicted with tremours teasing the pages apart is a challenge.If lying down then spin the paper around so the pages are open in the direction of the head and feet then move your thumb at a slant with a light pressure to uplift a curve. Then grab the curve and turn the page. Restore the paper to reading mode with a 90 degree turn.This has been "Fun with PTSD".
