This week sucked! I thought it was going to be a good week, after all I was getting my cast removed on Wednesday. Turns out that the cast removal wasn't as awesome as I had envisioned.
After 4 weeks of immobility my right wrist does not want to work anymore. I've lost a good amount of range of motion and there's sharp pains involved when I put pressure on hand with the wrist bent. I can't use my right hand to get out of a chair, for instance. There's sharp pains if I put my hand on a chair arm and try to push myself up. The wrist feels swollen and it hurts to put pressure on several points on the wrist. Fun.
Likewise, the hand is uncomfortable. My little finger flops over on top of my ring finger when I try to make a fist, of course I can't really make a fist because the little finger no longer bends in far enough!
On top of all of that I already have psoriatic arthritis, an autoimmune disorder that enjoys short walks, smooth jazz and fusing joints together with calcium.
Life is just one big party! Let's look at the depressing numbers:
Weight : 213.0
Gain : 1.4
Total : 107.0
Yay! another gain. This would be awesome if I was sickly skinny and was under doctor's orders to gain weight. Unfortunately that isn't the case. I'm trying to get it together, but lately I've felt like I'm living in a fog, in bizarro world where up is down and right is wrong.
I'll keep trudging on, maybe this week my hand and wrist will feel better enough to allow me to actually pick up a weight (something which I can not currently do with my right hand).
