Hands

Posted 13th October 2013 at 10:40 AM by Ebonytears

They say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. I think in many ways that is very true. Take for instance your hands. Look at them. 5 fingers all meeting at a fleshy palm attatched to your arm by a wrist. Most of us don't really pay attention to them at all. We don't take the time to care for them, some of us might rub some cream into them or spend time on the nails but the actual hand itself is pretty much ignored.

Now, while looking at your hands imagine if you can't use them. Or that they didn't respond properly. Imagine if they shook when you tried to do fine motor things like do up buttons or tie shoelaces. Imagine trying to pick up a cup but your hands not gripping properly or not having the strength to lift it. Now start thinking of all the things you do during the day that require the use of your hands......yeah.....all of a sudden they're pretty important aren't they?

From personal grooming to opening doors; communicating, expression, creativity; preparing and eating food; so many things that your hands do every day.

You will miss them terribly if they ever stop working or don't work as they should. If that ever happens it will change your life in so many ways.

Be nice to your hands. Take care of them. Pamper them every now and then. They mean more to you than you realise.

    A very random blog topic.
    But I can relate, as I have quite a few issues with one of my hands - probably related to working too much with salt water on the fishing boats.

    I totally agree and would just like to add that his can be said for many parts of the human anatomy. Treat your body right if you can and don't take it for granted!

    No Hands? Beware the shoulders!

    My hubby suffered bi-lateral tendon damage (both sides) to both shoulders and lost most use of his hands for nearly 10 yrs. At the prime of his (and our) life he was totally dependant on me for showering and dressing, cutting up food etc. It was a most challenging time in our life and despite "experts" saying "most marriages don't survive" we got through it and proved them wrong. After slowly recovering he has re-entered the workforce and plays a pivotal role in his company. I am now a "lady of leisure" being supported by him. I still wince when I see people lift weights with arms extended and do my best to spread the word about safe work practices.
    Men may feel impotent when they lose their "breadwinner" function but they are no less loved, or needed, remember that guys!
