My new accessory
Ugly isn't it? My hand has been bothering me for a while. Way back in the early 90's I worked at an assembly place (for 12 years). We built connectors & had to put caps on them. Some didn't fit on the connectors right & you really had to push & squeeze them. It got better after I stopped working there. Then when I was preg it bothered me again. I could hardly turn a doorknob. Then it was better. Now just the past 3 months or so my right hand has really been bothering me. I think it's because we have those squeezy child proof doorknob covers on some of our doors. So I finally went to the doctor today & she said I have carpal tunnel & my right hand is weaker than the left. I'm losing muscle tone. So she gave this yucky thing to wear. I asked if it came in pink or purple & she said no. I'm thinking I'm going to get some cute girlie material & try to make it look nice. I have no idea how I'm going to do it. It hurts to do some of my fave things, writing, scrapbooking & typing. Hopefully it will help & my hand will feel better soon.
