But sometimes it's the little things.
So many cans have pull-tab lids: tuna fish, cat food, canned beans. The seltzer water I drink. For a while I couldn't open them without sliding a knife into the tab and using it to lever the tab and lid up. That peculiar thing neuropathy made my fingers both too sore and too numb to pull up on the tab. Yesterday I realized that I was opening pull-tab cans without needing "help" for the first time in 3 months.
