I’ve got about a zillion things I want/need to type, but I’ve been hindered by, well, take a look –
No, my thumb isn’t broken, thankfully, though several coworkers were intent on convincing me that it was. 😡
I’ve been getting back into exercising (which has been doing amazing things for my arms if nothing else) and I recently added some yoga to it to help me with my tension and stretching. All has been going well for a couple of weeks, until last Monday when my body suddenly remembered that I am not a graceful swan but ever so slightly a bull in a china shop of fragile bones. While coming up from a Downward Dog pose, I suddenly lost my balance. As anyone would do, I tried to catch my fall and when I landed, I somehow bent my left thumb so that it cracked – loudly – and then felt rather painful.
It WAS feeling better, and then I overworked it on Saturday by cleaning and baking without a brace or bandage supporting it. I regret that decision because I am full of thumb related pain again.
All positive, thumb-healing thoughts sent my way will be greatly appreciated. Typing with this brace is driving me nuts.
