Here is my injured wrist, of course I am sad to say that knitting isn't happening right now. Boy do I miss it! I even tried taking off the splint last night and knit a row, that caused some pain so I thought surely I could knit with the splint on, again I was sorely wrong. I've had this before, it is wrist tendinitis and I'm sure I get it from all the mouse use I do during work hours and of course when I am on the computer at home. I think last time it took about 4 weeks to heal up and even then there were times it got aggravated and I was in pain. Sadly there isn't a lot that can be done for it besides immobilizing it and letting it heal. The tendons in the wrist are all swollen and inflamed. My treatment is the splint along with ibuprofen and ice. I haven't tried ice before so I'm hoping that adding it to the treatment will help it heal up, hopefully much better than last time.
So for now I am sad that I can't knit and I'm looking for other things to do to keep busy. My sis recommended reading a good book. I have to find a book that I can't put down and maybe that will take my mind off of the fact that I can't knit.
Why is it that as soon as you can't do something that you want to do it even more?
