My wife noticed I have difficulty controlling my hands when I am sitting. She noticed this today at our son's home. I am constantly ringing my hands, rubbing my arms, rubbing my pants, or other hand activities. She recommend we get an activity blanket. The idea actually excites me since I am always doing something with my hands.
I am either picking my fingers, or rubbing my hands, my arms, or using the computer to search endless subjects my mind comes up with. So, maybe a blanket with different textures and maybe some mechanical activities might help me control this busy hand issue.
This is an admission on my part that my LBD is progressing and I am OK with that. In fact, I am more and more giving up fighting this disease. I actually feel better relaxing and not fighting this disease. For instance, I do not drive anymore. Yes, I still have my driver's license and I could still drive. But, why should I? Driving is difficult and stressful for me now. Then there is the liability issue if I were involved in an auto accident as the driver. So, why stress?
On the same point, if an activity blanket, or as it is sometimes called a fidget or busy hand blanket, helps me deal with my hands always searching for something to touch, then I want one!!
This is truly an interesting change in my mental approach.
