Dont feel silly, Gayle. It's not a silly question at all. At 50, I had to invent ways to get my socks on
I have OA in my lower spine and hip and just can't bend some days. Did you now that if you lay on the bed and put your feet up in the air, you can nab a foot
I am not sure how you would cut your toenails if you can't bend you knee. That would be tricky. Perhaps, have a look in some of the medical supply stores and see if they have something that might be useful. I am certain you are NOT the only one who has this problem. There are lots of aids out there for disabilities.
