On June, 18 2012 I woke up with sore hands—more specifically a very sore right hand/wrist and a slightly sore left hand. There aren’t many things biologically that cause symmetric pain or difficulty. My first guess was Rheumatoid Arthritis, but I didn’t share this thought. I dutifully changed my laptop set up to make it more ergonomic, began Aikido hand stretches with the advice of a friend, and otherwise tried to ignore what, to me, was painfully obvious. Pun intended. It’s not the first time that my education and experience empowered me with information that I really would rather not have retained. I’m joking, of course, but sometimes I wonder what it would be like NOT to know the specifics of some health-related problem I’m experiencing. I’ll revisit this in a different post.
