Carpal Tunnel

Posted by The-Great-One - April 23rd, 2021


I won't be as active with my writings lately. My wrists have been hurting lately, particularly the left one. One of my nerves became pinched cutting off circulation. It made my heart go crazy, made it hard to breathe, and my left hand and left arm went numb.


I have to follow up with a hand doctor, as of right now though it looks like beginning stages of carpal tunnel. I'll still be lurking on the site as usual, but I have to take a break from doing as much writing as I do. The Tank Tribune will still be coming out though. I'm not stopping writing, but I have to slow down now.


Typing with a wrist brace is a bitch.

Sorry to hear that bud. I've had troubles with that myself because of playing the piano. Some suggestions: getting a physical therapist, sitting higher at the keyboard, and taking frequent breaks from very short bursts of work (work for two minutes, break for two minutes, etc.). It may also be worth experimenting with a transcriptionist service or software, and experimenting with audio generally as an alternative.

That's rough but I'm glad you're still here after all this time
