I'm not liking this. My wrists are an integral part of pretty much everything I do. Last night I had to alter the way I hold a needle to do gathering stitches because I couldn't hold it in the usual way.
Things I've done lately that may have caused this:
- Lots of digging over soil with a spade
Lots of digging over soil with a hand-held garden fork
Learning new hand tricks with my hoop (one overhead, one round the knees, anyone?)
I am hoping that it's just an overuse thing and that I haven't done any real damage. I'm thinking climbing, dagging, hooping and sewing as things that could be affected by this. Not being able to do these things would turn me into a growly horrible ADD type person who sits in the corner babbling obscenities at passers-by. Grr. Someone fix my life with magic!
In better news, I've figured out that if I pull the ironing board over to my swivelly chair, I can work on it at eye level without hunching over. When I have 10 metres of fabric to sew with double rows of gathering stitches, this makes a big difference. Yay for DIY ergonomics!
Also, I went to the supermarket yesterday, and bought only fruit and vegies. OMG who stole me and replaced me with someone else?
