Fallen Off The Map

Dispite popular belief, I am still alive. Unfortunatly, I haven't been able to do much of anything art wise. In fact, the last time I was able to hold a paint brush was about 6 months ago. Now, cutting fabric is a challenge with or without a brace and compression glove. So things are on hold. I see a specialist tomorrow to find out why the pain has gotten so bad. This is the worst it's ever been. Typing more then needed about kills me anymore let alone play a game or even hold my kindle.

I've done the stretching, the resting and the braces. While I think part of it is carpel tunnel coming back to huant me, there is something way different about this time around. I really didn't even start talking about it to anyone until about a week ago. I've been in denial. Now I can't draw, sew, paint or really do much of anything with out being in pain for a long while after. I want my life back and I thinks that's really the only reason I pushed myself to go to the doctor (I HATE being a patient!!!)

So now it's the wait and see game. I'll be surprized if they tell me there is a fix outside of surgery. Cordizone shots have not worked in the past. Surgery the first time around 10 years ago didn't do much. I also think that first doctor was a quack and was with Group Death. So here's hoping this can be fixed and I can go back to being covered in paint and thread and have the strenght to play with clay again. Because this blows.
