When I had a stroke and for the first year afterward, I was clueless. To all newbies: DON’T ORDER SPAGHETTI AT A RESTAURANT! You will embarrass yourself greatly. Order finger foods. Nothing that needs to be cut. Pasta is a bad bad choice, especially long noodles. Especially to someone with tremors. Especially on a date. Especially with someone you’re not extremely extremely comfortable with. Things like chicken fingers, fish that’s easy to cut with a fork with one hand, pizza, maybe sandwiches, maybe. Depends. Things that are already in bite size pieces. As an adult, asking someone else to cut up your food – oh my God that’s humiliating.
