hi there.

i just want to say i haven’t forgotten you, internet. i was all excited to start posting again this week. however the grueling schedule of working day and night and even weekends and holidays (and birthdays, i’m 33 now) seemed to have taken a toll on my body. specifically, my back and my arms (carpel tunnel) are leading a revolt against me. chiropractic care and wrist braces are my weapons of choice.

as anyone who has ever felt the twinge of CT knows, the only real way to get rid of it is to stay away from a computer. i fudged at that earlier this week, but today i drew the line and took the day off. i’m not planning on working much tomorrow either. hopefully a good 4 days away from keyboards will be enough of a gesture for my arms to forgive me and come back to health. once theyre in the fold, maybe my back will follow suit.

anyway. long way to say, sorry, but i won’t be playing catchup like i said i would. sniff sniff.

someone remind me never to beat myself up like this for WORK again. so so so so not worth it. i’m in PAIN, internet, PAIN.

hopefully i’ll see y’all next monday.

bye.

    Man, that completely sucks. I hope you recover quickly. Enjoy your time away from the computer :)

    Gah, yes….stay away from the evil PC so you don’t end up in surgery like I did!

    That totally sucks! I feel your pain. About 4 or 5 years ago I had something similar, it wasn’t CT, but was a swelling of the area around a tendon on the inside of the wrist. Within the span of 24 hours it went from a slight ache to my thumb and pointer finger couldn’t move to the entire hand and up the arm almost to the shoulder was in pain and I couldn’t move it or touch it. I think I was given a course of steroids. I had one recurrence of it and since then its gone. It didn’t hang around like CT does. Which, hopefully yours won’t! Hope you’re feeling better today!
