The CLAW!!

Yes, right now I look like The Claw. Or somewhat like The Claw anyway. I went back to the doc this morning after a week on anti-inflammatories for the soreness in the joints in my right arm, and she’s decided it’s most likely Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

All I know is that it is very sore around the wrist and fingers. I did have some pain in the elbow and shoulder but anti-inflammatories helped that, so she thinks it was those muscles over-compensating for the damage in my wrist and fingers.
I now have a LOVELY wrist/hand brace that cost me $40. Yes, FORTY DOLLARS. Ugh. It’s ugly. Beige, lumpy and ugly.
Any suggestions on how I can modify it to make it cute/elegant/fun?

    Hmm $40 that’s just nasty! Perhaps a tie dye job might make it prettier but at least you can use to “accidentally” whack people and get more bang for your buck when whacking peopleSorry you are in pain and get stuck into the glucosamine OK, will help your joints etc

    I think you should paint it pick, and put little flower stickers all over it. 🙂 Girlie it up a bit.
