When my hands were at their worst, I had to wear a bib; just a towel with a safety pin on it. When I was on steroids for 21 months (1000 mg a week), my hands shook uncontrollably. It was actually funny to watch me try to type anything, as my whole hands just bounced around. After 4 1/2 years I still type with 2 fingers, so consider yourself lucky! I, too, just laugh at myself, what else can one do. I tripped & fell over the hose in the yard while watering my flowers yesterday; I was actually thrilled, because I could get up by myself. First time I have been able to do that. Luckily I didn’t get hurt!
