Hello, I am back from a surprised unscheduled leave of absence. Yes, I was forced to take time off the computer and rest my wrists and fingers. They were getting numb due to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. I have a tendency to get very relaxed when I start to write, however it seems it is not good for the old fingers and wrists. They are much better now and I am very happy to be back. To be sure that I wouldn’t go on the computer I had no internet at all for the whole time I was off. That was hard at first. I never knew I was so addicted to this machine.
I just moved half way across the city, which I didn’t think would be so stressful. I have moved several times over my life so this was nothing new to me. I always enjoyed the adventure of moving to a new home, decorating a new place. It seemed so exciting to me; until this last time. This time turned out to be a nerve-wracking experience. Right from the get go nothing seemed to go right. If I went right everything and everyone went left. For some reason it took a week instead of a day to move. This never happened before.
I was in my new place without the internet. So meditation to keep the stress levels down helped immensely. Also writing in a journal also helped. You see my fingers on both hands were numb down to the middle of the fingers before I stopped. So there were quite a few simple things that I had trouble doing like doing up buttons, picking up coins off the counter, or any small objects. I couldn’t put my earrings in by myself. Putting on mascara was a chore and I would keep dropping things because I couldn’t feel them in my hands.
That is all in the past now. I am in my new home and neighbourhood, and meeting new people everyday. I am also happy to be back here with you and looking forward to some great feedback from you on some upcoming stories.
