Just a quick follow-up on my RSI (repetitive stress injury).
Man, this takes a long time to heal. Since I saw the doctor last month I’ve read arranged my computer workstation and it’s helped a lot. I installed an adjustable keyboard tray and that has improved the angle at which my arms sit while I am typing. I’ve changed to a Evoluent vertical mouse. It’s a bit weird at first but rotating the arm 90 degrees while mousing has really helped. Finally I got one of those split keyboards from Mircosoft – hate to admit this but this keyboard really works. It changes the angle on my arms to a more natural position and really reduces the stress.
At work I’ve learned to use the mouse with my left hand so I don’t over use my right side but I still need to get a new keyboard for the office.
Altogether it’s working but anytime you get this it takes forever to heal. But I hope that I’ll be able to get back to a more regular blogging schedule now that I moving past this problem.
