My manual dexterity in my hands and fingers is very poor as a result of the long term use of meds,  IE: if I'm in the chat room, by the time I type my statement-everybody is on the next subject and I find it really hard to keep up. That's odd because I had a computer at my desk at work for several years.
 
I had to give up my music teaching 26yrs ago as a result of my poor dexterity and coordination, but my seizures are under control. It's a HUGE tradeoff
 
Does anyone else have this prob??
BTW it took me 9 mins to type this.

I know it is frustrating to have it take a long time. I hope that explaining this to folks in chat they will all understand. Others do have this issue from a variety of health things....Sometimes the meds make it hard for others too...

Glad you have control but it must be a really hard trade off....

These computer programs and software that you mention are expensive, not feasable if it's just for chat line use and since I'm on disability, I don't pull in all that much cash, good idea though.

I just want ppl to understand why I don't go into a HW chat room if there are more than 3 ppl. (I've been asked about that several times)
