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

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?

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 :)

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?

Hey, you two. Can you call a truce for a couple days to give AS a calm place to talk about her grandmother, please?
While their diatribes grew boring days ago, you shouldn't try to dictate what people talk about on a public forum.

Same people in what way? I am not in the district to be able to vote for that candidate one way or another so I don't have a horse in this race.

That's why I didn't watch it for a couple of days, even though a bunch of my friends had posted it. Not that I don't appreciate any act of kindness, but I figured that there must be something different about this store if so many people were sharing it.

I find that kids are often mean, especially when they get together in groups. It's not always intentional, but empathy is very difficult for children to understand and put into practice (it's hard for adults, too). That's why acts of kindness stand out so much.

I may have told this story on here before, but my younger brother (the one with Asperger's) was the manager of the football team in high school. He got that position because my older brother played football and the Athletic Director took my little bro under his wing, so he kept that position even after Big Bro graduated. During his senior year of hs, my brother was sick on his birthday and had to miss football practice. Around dinnertime, my father saw a line of cars pulling up in front of the house. They live on a cul-de-sac off of another cul-de-sac, so the only reason to be there was to visit our house and my father started to worry that this group of kids was going to toilet paper or house or something similar. Every member of the football team got out of those cars and sang "Happy Birthday" to my brother. It is still one of his best memories of hs and my father gets a little choked up when he talks about it.

I do lots of things I shouldn't do and will most likley continue to do so.

Being a force for civility in the forum is high on my list.

Well, I have to sleep with something under my chin to hold my mouth shut. Yes, even in my sleep, my mouth wants to be open. so I think I bend them to help hold covers up under my chin. If I sleep on my side, I'll bend my wrist and tuck my hand/wrist under my chin to sleep (esp. at Nick's, where I sleep on my side more than my back).
