So it's been a hectic couple weeks.

First, my hard drive died. Fortunately, it was only mostly dead and not dead dead, so I didn't loose anything really. Still, I was without my computer for a week and it was more spendy than I would have liked to have spent fixing it.

Next, I have tendinitis. In both arms. Apparently the muscles in my forearms are SUPER tight and pulling my carpel bones out of place which is causing me wrist pain and then the hand pain. Because have I mentioned zomg pain? I have been suffering from debilitating pain in both my index fingers. So actually was kinda good not to have my computer for a week.

So that's why I've been a bit more reclusive and unresponsive of late.

Ouch. I'm sorry about the computer. And also about the tendinitis. I can't help much about the computer (well, I've some old hard drives kicking about but they're OLD and small!), but I could help with the tendinitis.

Start taking B-complex vitamins. According to my biochemist aunt, there's something about the extra dose of B-complex that breaks up a protein buildup that is one of the causes for tendinitis and carpal tunnel. I've been using it for several years now and surprisingly enough it works. It's not gone away, but it's become manageable and doesn't hurt too badly.

You take care, Li. :)

I'm going to Phys Therapy, so hoping that the hands will be well soon.
