Greetings Gentle Readers,
Just wanted everyone to know that I will be a bit sidelined for the next few weeks. I am having a surgical procedure today on my right wrist for carpal tunnel. The procedure is done endoscopically using only a 1/4 inch incision and takes only about seven minutes. The surgeon told me that it actually takes longer to sterilize my hand then to do the actual cutting. 🙂 I’ve been experiencing numbness in my hands for about a year now and despite doing exercises and wearing braces, it has not improved. Unlike my typing skills, which have gone seriously down hill, which is a bit problematic, since I write for a living! I will not be able to type with this hand for about 3 weeks. We are also going on vacation the first two weeks of February, during most of which I will have no internet access. Just didn’t want anyone worrying.
Things are continuing to improve in terms of the personal problems I have been dealing with and I am working on a new post about the work I have been doing around shame in therapy. Bit of a slog though, I am very much struggling to articulate what I have learned, it’s still all a bit new. My very kind boss bought me a copy of Dragon software so I can control my computer using voice commands and it included a license for my home system. So I may take it out for a spin and try to finish the post. OK, after the anesthesia wears off! See you all soon!
