I’ll admit that I look at a computer screen about 14-18 hours per day. So when my right forearm started feeling like limp spaghetti, and the tips of my fingers started to tingle, I sensed something was awry.
After reading about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it looks like I’m a candidate for it. Foster suggested I dig out my Wacom tablet and use that instead of a mouse. So I did.
It’s frightening to be knocked back to 50% productivity, esp. when you have the usual mountain of work to do. Being self-employed, I have no workers compensation insurance or paid sick days.
to avoid having a sawbones carve into my hands/wrists, I’m cutting back (no pun intended) to 10-12 hours a day. For a while…
Hopefully you never have this surprise!
