Good evening fellow evening bloggers and readers. You might be asking - what did Jen do again this time? Am I paying homage to Britney Spears? Did I ruin another computer? Did I once again fail in my attempt to catch a kitty in a playful position with the camera for a wordless Wednesday post?
Okay, yes to the last. They are never being playful when I have my camera out. Why is this?
But no to the rest.
No, tonight I pushed my hands to their stress point in trying to get this scarf done for a customer. It is an 8 foot scarf. And I have been crocheting since about 5 pm. I always seem to be doing this. Whether it is from crocheting or knitting or typing or pointing and clicking with a mouse. I always seem to push my hands to their stress point, making it more difficult to perform the task I am doing. Okay, I actually miss the days when my hands would hurt from typing or writing all day. Stupid writer's block.
This is part of the reason why I drink at night. The alcohol dulls the pain so I can push further. I don't drink to get drunk (does anyone over the age of 30?). But it makes the edges a little fuzzy, the pain a little less noticeable. But tonight I was out of alcohol and so I stopped a little early tonight because I was getting to the point where I couldn't hold the knitting needles. Strangely, typing is stretching them out a little, but they are still sore, so I won't push anymore. I think my body is telling me it is time for bed.
So, here's my question - if you craft, do you suffer from arthritis (like myself) or fibromyalgia (like myself) and does this prevent you from crafting as much as you would like? Honestly, I can't tell what is acting up tonight. I blame the weather - we are supposed to get a snowstorm tonight and tomorrow. Everything hurts.
Good night, and happy crafting.
