Can I gripe for a sec?Like I don't already, but hey - I figured I'd be polite.
I have a flare-up of effing tendonitis in my right hand. Specifically, my thumb, along the radial nerve. I went to grab a stack of Rubbermaid totes off a shelf the other day and felt it tweak and ever since then it has swelled up and been hurting like the dickens everytime I flex or move or put pressure. I had the original issue back in 1997, and was given a compression splint, an Rx for 800 mg of ibuprofen every 4 hours, and orders not to use that hand for repetitive task motion or heavy lifting for 2 weeks. Flared up once again back in 2001, did same regimen. So I've been doing pretty good, average of 4-5 years between episodes LOL
But now, this just pisses me off because for those of you who know what I do for a living, know that I use both thumbs every day for precision tasks. (I'm ambidextrous, but I have more strength most days in my right hand ever since I had my left hand slammed in a car door back in high school and an operation to remove cysts) Not to mention knitting and beading, although I haven't had time to do much of either lately.
And I need a haircut. And my nose is running b/c my allergy drugs have decided to take a holiday today.
The good news is that my pink eye is almost cleared up! Yay!
