I put grippies on my pens in the hope of changing the way I hold them. Sadly, when the cap is on the pen the grippy has to be almost 1/3rd of the way up the barrel. When the pen is un-capped the grippy is in the wrong place, and has to be adjusted. This means I am discouraged from switching pens as quickly as I usually do (I switch between sizes, .1, .2, .3, .5, .7, .8...) which further means that I am encouraged to use the wrong pen for the job.

The larger problem, though, is that the grippies didn't work. My hand either shook like a seismograph needle, or I clutched the pen too hard and made the hand pain worse.

So: Back to grippie-less pens, and I guess I'll have to pay more attention to my grip, and maybe solve this problem through sheer force of will.

Aww, that's too bad.  I also hold pens wrong, and what's worked the best for me is to try to hold the pen more loosely to prevent hand pain.  That and taking regular breaks to shake out my hand.
