Suffering For Your Art

My resident medical expert and personal physician, Gita, has confirmed that I do indeed have tendonitis in both wrists. It's not carpal tunnel syndrome (yet), because I don't have the numbness and tingling that goes along with that. But, I do have considerable pain in both wrists.

I've been dual-wielding wrist braces for the last two months, and it hasn't really helped. It hasn't gotten any worse, either. (part of my issue being that while I try to wear them consistently at work, wearing them at home is...less stringent) It might be better if I could take ibuprofen or some other anti-inflammatory, but lucky me, I'm allergic to most of them.

Ah well. Do you think this is going to stop me writing? Hell no! All true artists must suffer for their art, dah-ling.

Ahhh, maybe that's what I have. I thought it was carpal tunnel but don't have the tingling or numbness--just persistent pain that I manage with motrin and frequent breaks.

It's been better since I bought a new desk, new mouse, new wrist pad of my keyboard etc.
