I've mentioned my problem with my arms hurting before. Well, the other day I did something really st00pid. I tried to wash a really heavy pot with water in it without resting it on the bottom of the sink (I didn't want to have to scrub the scratches out of the sink). Well, now my right arm is pretty much AWOL. I'm not even really capable of driving. But since my right arm is AWOL, I'm having to use my left arm, which also has problems, for pretty much everything. Martin's working a lot lately so I'm using a still-problem arm for the housecleaning and laundry and such. Which is screwing it up more.


Not looking for suggestions, not looking for sympathy, looking for understanding that I'm not going to be keeping up on ANYONE's LJ. I'll answer my email, but that's about it. No internet, no crocheting, no cross-stitching, no reading anything heavier than a cheap magazine, no gameboy.... I'll be watching a lot of TV. I've got a birthday next week and I'd like to still be able to feed and dress myself when it rolls around. Yeah, I'm selfish. Having use of my arms on my birthday is more important than reading your LJ. What a bitch I am ~_^. Besides, I've got to be able to wrap presents soon ^_^

Hasta la pasta, y'all, hope to see y'all in a week or two.

I had tennis elbow once and my left arm went AWOL. Suddenly I could not pick up a glass of water. I feel for you hon qand hope that you get better soon.

Well in theory if I actually BEHAVE a while instead of always being online, it should heal, right?

Mighty picky of you - but hey, I suppose we'll forgive you.

But /just/ this once. No more of this after that. Hmmph! :P

Dammit I am gonna have to tape both your arms into slings for a month - before you cripple yourself permanently.

Oh, shoosh, I'm getting better already and any Dad money for my birthday is earmarked for a new carpal-friendly pointing device...

If you can get it somewhere, maybe you should watch the episode of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi where one of them (I think Yumi) lost the use of her hands and has the other always running around being her hands for her. ^_^

I think that one's amusing from both of their POVs.

Also, I think I missed what caused your arm troubles in the first place. Why are your arms not happy?

I think the problem is my mouse is so heavy and the keyboard keys are hard to hit. It's a really freakin' cheap ass set. And that toon sounds cool, I'll keep an eye out for it, lord knows I have plenty of television time...

Yeah, the keyboard I got is ok, but the new mouse sucks. It was the only one I could find that was USB, and it was cheap, and within days turned to crap. (I keep cleaning it, and slamming it around, and still it keeps sticking during use)

We both need new mice and stuff.

Happy Birthday!!!
It's good that you're taking some personal time out to get well. I hope you know you're missed though. :)

Just wanted to post a note to say I hope you have a very happy birthday!!

Re: Happy Birthday!!!
Awww, thank you so much! I love the cake! And hopefully I'll be more present soon, quite tired of not being caught up on LJ...
