Ok, so you know how I have weird sayings like "Hokey Freakin' Dinah", and the like.
Well, "Carpal Tunnel" is something I say instead of cr @ p...LOL. I will now rewrite the joke for y'all, so you won't think it is about carpal tunnel syndrome.
An Important Announcement About Growing Old!
Aww, crap. I forgot what I was going to say.
It is probably not as good the second time, but I had to clarify. Actually, though, I do have carpal tunnel, and am supposed to have surgery, but I say NO. I wear the Futuro brace for bed.
I rarely wear it during the day, but I tend to curl my wrists when I sleep, so I put it on for night. I was first supposed to have the surgery just before Jayden was born. There was no way that I was going to have a baby, and then not be allowed to pick him up for 8 weeks, since they had to do both wrists. It took about a month, but since I started wearing it (remember, only at night), I don't feel my fingers falling asleep anymore. It has been nearly 5 years! I will go this route for a long as I can, since it seems to be doing the trick for now.
Hopefully this helps someone out there!
