Gosh today is off to a bad start. We're having a rainy day, but that's not the worst part. Normally I love a good rainy day - it is a perfect day for curling up with tea and knitting or crocheting. Alas, as I type this I am in terrible pain, my tendonitis is acting up and the simplest things from blogging and knitting to doing my actual secretary work is very painful!
I got out my handy dandy brace and it's on - so far it hasn't eased the pain and it's quite bulky and gets in the way of typing and such. I refuse to take the anti-inflammatory drugs that are prescribed for my condition as they do terrible things to my stomach and it's not fun. So I guess I'll have to wear this horrible contraption, take my ibuprofen regulary and see what happens. When I was diagnosed with this a couple of years back the initial treatment was for anti-inflammatory drugs and 6 weeks of a wrist brace. It never really did go away completely but it goes through stages where it hurts more and then less again, depending on how I am using it.
Oh, don't worry - I am not about to stop knitting. I just can't give that up. I may have to slow it down a bit though. The funny thing is the thing that hurts me the most is using the mouse, and I even have one of those gel-pad mouse pads.....hmmmmmmmm! Maybe I need some time away from work.....lol! I don't think that will happen anytime soon as if I am ill, I have to have volunteers answer the phone but they aren't capable of doing the daily tasks...*sigh*.
