#WIN a Great Stocking Stuffer! {UGLee Pen #Giveaway (11/26) US #Rafflecopter}

Sponsored by Tomoson.com I used to wait tables. I had a huge callous on the middle finger of my left hand for years. I also had some major pain in mu thumb and index finger on that hand. On busy days, the pain would be so bad that I'd ice my hand when I got home just to numb the pain away. Though I haven't taken an order in years, that phantom pain comes back, especially in the winter. 


My husband has a central nervous system disorder which makes it very hard for him to write. His hand shes so badly that his writing just looks like a bunch of zigzag lines. He must put a tom of pressure on his writing instruments to keep the shaking under control. With that much pressure, just writing his name is a long and arduous task. Writing an entire sentence can leave his hand, wrist, entire arm... even his shoulder and neck in pain.

Then, there's my oldest. Now, no kid should have problem with his hands at only 13 years old, but with the amount of homework he has been getting since starting high school and constantly having to take notes in every class, he comes home complaining of the pain in his hand. It worries me. How badly will his hand hurt when he gets out of college??? Is all of this writing messing up the way the bones, tendons, and muscles are developing? Will he be at risk for early onset of arthritis?


Oh, and I don't want to forget about Little Guy. Being the kind of person he is, he wants to do everything the rest of his family can do. He sees me making lists for things we have to do or buy. He wants to make his own lists. I give him a pad of paper and a pen and let him write his "list", but he can't grip a pen very well. It ends up slipping out of his fingers. He can't even draw a circle without having to reposition the pen. He ends up frustrated and angry. I've tried giving him a crayon or marker, but he wants to be like me and only a grown-up looking pen will do.


Last week, something pretty cool came to my family! We received a package of UGLee pens. Now, these are aptly named - they're not really pretty and sleek. But they're great for all of our problems. On those days when my pain returns, I can still write. My husband still has shaky hands, but he can write for a longer period of time. My oldest's hand pain has already become a memory. And even Little Guy can "write" his lists without the frustrations he's been feeling. (In fact, I've noticed that he can actually write a few letters. I just didn't know it when he was using cumbersome fat crayons and slippery pens and pencils.)


What makes UGLee Pens so different? The have a squishy grip on them. This thing is really weird-feeling and almost seems sticky. I kept expecting to have to wash my hand after using it. But I got used to it after a few tries and began to love it! It also contains ink that flows easily and smoothly. I have always preferred gel pens because they write so nicely, but UGLee Pen's ink has them beat. Finally, the pen is lightweight. You may not think of this when writing, but just a few ounces can make a huge difference!


"UGLee" stands for Ultimate Grip; Lee is the name of the doctor who invented this pen, Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee has a BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University and earned his MD from Stanford University School of Medicine. He's not just some guy who decided to invent a different kind of pen! It took him years of studying the human hand and building tons of prototypes before he came to his final version of the UGLee Pen.
