Hi Val YES! its hard when you lose the strength in yr hands. I changed all the taps in our house (well obviously not actually me, a man-what-does did them!) to the ceramic lever ones as I haven't been able to turn off the other sort for a long time and the drips drove me mad too. Or worse, I couldn't get the tap to turn on...

Hi Val sorry your feeling a bit down yes it is so frustrating its the little things like not being able to open a door handle and hold my knife so having to eat with my left hand and having the food cut up then looking down and seeing ive dropped it all down me lol not funny at the time and filling up the kettle one handed as i can't turn the tap on its not easy. take care (((big hugs ))) on their way x
