    My left side is most impacted by PD and it always manifests itself when I try to put on the left sleeve of a shirt or coat.  It takes me forever to get that left arm in.  As I struggle, someone usually takes pity on me and helps me put it on. Do you have this issue putting on a jacket or shirt? If so, do you prefer to figure it out on your own no matter how long it takes or are you happy for an assist?

    I’ve had this issue but never linked it to PD. I figured that this problem was a technique issue such that I watched other people to see their “technique” to figure out what I needed to change.

    To answer your question I prefer to figure it out on my own but that’s because I’m super stubborn.

    Thanks for the insight.

    It sometimes takes me a little longer than usual to button my left cuff button with my right (PD-impacted) hand. And like Bob, I’d rather do it myself.

    ah… the things we always took for granted…
