My New Fashion Accessory

Right around last Christmas, during the holiday rush of crochet orders, my wrist started hurting. It was more of a dull obnoxious pain than anything else. When I started yoga, it would really hurt during down dog, plank, and table top positions. Anything where the weight was on my hands with a bend in my wrist. I just chucked it up to my lack of upper body strength and thought it would just get better with time. It didn't. Then last night during push ups of all things, it just went out on me! It was like a spasm and a pop and down I went. I first iced it and then searched my house for somethign to support it. At first I couldn't find these wrist guards so I used a remote control and gauze for a makeshift splint! haha! Finally I found these at the top of our closet. They aren't the best support as they are actually my husband's wrist guards for snowboarding, but they help for now until I can get to the pharmacy. I did not sleep well last night and woke up often from the pain. This morning is even worse! I have a doctor's appointment for this afternoon, I just have to make it until then and hope he perscribes me some strong pain killers. In the meantime I get to rock the styling look of this wrist guard and feel like an invalid here at work. woohoo!


  1. Sending you healing vibes. It drives me nuts when I can't create like I want to. Hope you will be on the mend soon.

  2. Ouch! Sorry to hear of your wrist pains. Hopefully the doc will give you something good and the injury will repair itself soon. Until then, maybe you can dream of your crochet/knits patterns being made. :-)
