The past few days I’ve had a bit shorter fuse than usual. I think a huge part of it is that my wrists are really bothering me–my carpal tunnel issues are flaring up–and it’s keeping me from getting as much work done as I’d like.
I don’t have the patience for much nuance in my correspondence and I am sitting on some ‘to-do’s” that just won’t get done until I feel better again. On top of that, the devil winds are back and that always makes me fussy, too (people it was 90 degrees here today, which kinda sucks for November).
That said, I have been watching more movies that usual because of my owie hands (not a bad thing, necessarily, because I rarely allow myself that time-sucking luxury). Saw “Children of Heaven” a few days ago (adorable and sweet) and “The Prestige” tonite (good screenplay, that one).
I’m totally ready for any and all advice you have for CT issues, barring surgery. The splints and wraps work, but are awkward and cause their own kinds of pains eventually. I used Ben-Gay this afternoon which gave me some temporary relief so I could putter around in my garden a bit–but it smells pretty awful. What else do you recommend??
