Writing aids? Any suggestions?

Feb 18, 2019 3:37 PM

So, I am supposed to use a pen grip for writing ✍️ however within the first week of using it a kid in my class make a remark about it looking rude/ inappropriate😳, (not gonna say what he said as there might be younger people here) so after that I stopped using them and threw them away. 😕

now 2 years later and I’m going to be going into my GCSEs (final exams of high school😬) and some exams are 2h20m 🙄 long and so I will most definitely need something to help me then...

I have hypermobile joints 🖇 and I’m wondering what kind of pen grip I should get as I know there are many styles. 🤔 Previously I used an ultra grip but maybe there is another one better for me, or some other kind of writing aid. 🤷‍♀️
Please comment or pm me 😄

So anyway I bought a selection of grips and they arrived today. Some of them are quite good and some I probably won’t use. They do help with keeping pain lower while writing and one even is made so you can’t hyper extent your finger and thumb while using it.
