Ang, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better! It must be a huge relief for you that the pain can be managed so easily right now.

Yeah, thanks for the nice comments about my improved hands! And thanks to, was it AS and Pellen?-- to push me to see the doctor sooner rather than later?

What? You mean like respecting someone's religious beliefs and offering solace even if that is not my faith, or even if I feel that the very act of having faith presents a question about my ability to think?

Sure, I am good with that. Now get the godless heathen to agree.

And yes, I promise, my last post on this till next Monday

I will say a prayer AS!

Hey, you two. Can you call a truce for a couple days to give AS a calm place to talk about her grandmother, please?

Glad I was wrong. You didn't sound like you had classic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but that just proves the value of going to a real doctor, not just someone who plays one on line.

You mean one of those stupid, meaningless prayers that do nothing?

So on Wednesday, I went to the doctor for a diagnosis re my weak and painful fingers and hands and wrists. He said it was carpal tunnel likely caused by.packing up moving boxes, combined with how I bend my wrists when I sleep.
After five nights of wearing the wrist braces while sleeping, the improvement is AMAZING. I can't believe it. Not only is the pain significantly reduced but I have strength back. Last week I couldn't lift my lightweight typing stand to put it on my shelf. I couldn't carry four reams of paper.
I couldn't take the cap off a tube of Chapstick with my left hand.
Now I can. I called his nurse yesterday to give her the news and was very happy for me and said he'd be very pleased to hear that the progress had been so swift.
Yay"
Just curious, ho do you bend your wrists when you sleep such that it would be harmful?

Chicago voters have elected another black democrat to replace Jessie Jr.
Those people just can't learn, can they?
Um, what does his being black have to do with anything? Are black democrats in some way worse than white democrats?

There was a website address. I deleted that and posted the letters in the comments. So you have to go to post 15 or something to read, and then back up for everyone's thoughts.

((AS)) Sorry for your loss. Hang in there, you'll get through this (various other cliche platitudes here)as well, but I mean them. Talk it out here if you like. I found this place to be great for that; very helpful when you feel like reminiscing.

Darn you RACE and Ang! I should be taking a shower and getting ready for my day, but now I'm looking around for Bible quotes to post on that loon's thread. I have to pick up my younger son in an hour, so I have about 20 minutes left to screw around on the computer.

Have you guys seen this video that is going around on FB? It is similar to some of the feel good hs sports stories that we have heard about over the past couple of years, but there is a twist at the end. I love hearing about people being kind to each other :)

Ditto...I thought it would be the run of the mill kind of "team is nice to the mentally handicapped kid" vid, but the kid from the other team, too? Kids are still being raised right.

Her, actually. And since both white and black democrats have ended up behind bars, I'm gonna say no. But don't you find it funny (but actually sad) that you people keep voting for the same people, the same people, the same people, then can't understand why things aren't getting better?
