I have tendonitis. Some days it’s worse than others. Lately, I think I may also be developing CTS. My pinky was a little numb the other day. I get a massage every two or three weeks. I sit appropriately at my chair, with the machine in the right location. But perhaps it’s not enough.
Fortunately for me, I am multi-skilled; I can report in voice. Of course, in the winter, that could be a difficult thing if one had a cold. Fortunately, at this moment I don’t. I’m getting ready to go into a two-week trial. I can’t write it. My arms hurt too much. I can voice it.
I’ll be taking salt baths, downing anti-inflammatories, and getting a massage next weekend. But right now, all I can say is I’m very glad I made the decision to cross-train. Otherwise, I might have to take sick time and lose out on a very lucrative civil trial.
Be careful out there. The equipment you’re born with is all you get. Take care of it.
