Can’t Post Today

I had planned a long blog post for today but it’s not happening.  I’ve managed to injury my arm and I shouldn’t be using the computer for a few days.  It’s your basic case of repetitive stress and over use of my mouse hand.  That and all the bricks I lifted last weekend.

Ouch – hurts to type.

Sentences will be shorter.

No paragraphs.

Left hand doing mouse clicks.

Turns out you can type with just your left hand if you want but it is hard to do CAPS and my fingers are having trouble finding all the keys.

It’s fun trying to type with just my left hand.  My right hand is trying to help – it keeps pointing to the key that they left hand should press.  Oddly, it is just happening without me consciously thinking about it.  I’ve typed with both hands for so many years that one can’t do the work without the other.  Wow – there’s got to be a whole post there about teamwork and cooperation.

Ow – good paragraph but it hurt to type it.

Given that I’ve got a wonky arm, I shouldn’t even be typing this so I’ll stop for now.  More after some rest, ice and half a bottle of Advil.

  1. If you are experiencing muscle contraction, tension, a abnormal growth, pain or weakness; hand surgery is necessary. During hand surgery the doctor will evaluate what is causing the problem and either mend bones or tendons back together, make an incision to release all the fluids or pressure in the area.

      Fortunately I am not having any of those problems anymore – it turns out to be a simple case of over use and a bad computer set up. So far, rest, ibuprofen, simple exercise and getting my computer workstation setup properly have reduced the symptoms a great deal. I go back to the doctor next month for a follow up to see if I’ll need anything more.
