Advice & Tips: Before the loss of dexterity and the presentation of intention tremors in my hands brought on by MS, handwritten journaling was important to me. Loss of handwriting ability has been a substantial loss for me. I have recently become aware that my occupational therapists were woefully uneducated in the practice of handwriting. The several therapists I had offered handwriting therapy advice only in the form of practice writing (using the same techniques I had always used). They didn't know enough to recognize that my technique was exceptionally flawed. Only recently, through my own internet research, have I become aware of good handwriting techniques. I can now handwrite again without substantial pain and instant fatigue. My writing is still awkward, slow, and 'sloppy,' but it is actually more legible than before MS effects.
