My week of no computer use has come and gone, and my hands are still bothering me, although I think they might be getting a little bit better…maybe. I have another appointment with the hand doctor on December 27, so I’m going to continue my computer hiatus until then to see if anything else happens.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been dealing with an issue with my hands that is exacerbated by (and may be caused by) using the computer. It isn’t carpal tunnel syndrome or anything specific like that; I’ve seen a doctor and had a lot of tests, and the conclusion is that I’ve just overused my hands.
Despite cutting way back on my computer use, my hands are still giving me hell, so I’m going to take a full week off the computer. That means I won’t be blogging, using Twitter or Facebook, e-mailing, etc.
I’ll be back on December 20, hopefully with good news.
