10:12 pm - The usual disasters
Last time it was my left elbow that went berserk; today, after three days of no lifting, it's my right. Neck, says my physiotherapist glumly, and gives me ultrasound and traction, but I still get the lightning shocks down the arm from time to time. Not playing online solitaire would help, but I also realize typing involves the sort of looking down I'm Not Supposed To Do. Maybe put my keyboard on a box?

Also managed to lose my watch somewhere. Will not break my heart over it- too small and the metal band regularly bit me. But all the little watch shops I used to patronize have vanished- four, to date- and where will I find another?

When I was doing all that sewing ... and there was a point where the writing overlapped a little with the sewing ... it did get to a critical stage for my neck ... I actually had to take a break from the sewing for two days ... and I did put the keyboard on a box.

Actually I used one of those bed tray things ... put a small pillow or cushion to rest your elbows and arms on though.

Hope the aches go away ... I hate getting those twinges. They're a ... ahahaha ... pain!Pun unintended, honest. ^_~

This is a desktop, unfortunately. The looking down comes from never having learned to touch type in spite of efforts. So putting the keyboatd on a box involves lifting arms more than my arms want to lift.

It's all the perils of age and disintegrating bodies. Time to think Buddhist.
