How to Make and Use a Button Aid

Photobucket

Many of us MS Patients have fine motor skill issues with our hands and fingers making daily tasks a little more difficult than they should be. One task in particular that used to drive me nuts when my fingers grew limp was buttoning my clothing! I eventually learned this little trick after I no longer needed it but I wanted to go ahead and share it with everyone since it can really reduce a lot of stress! I am going to show you how to make and use a buttoning aid using common household objects so that you can avoid spending $10.00-$20.00 for one like below or that you can have something to use while you wait for your actual button aid in the mail!
