I hate hurting myself. Especially hurting myself doing something that I have to do a lot. A lot like when I got all the tendon swelling from lots of typing usage of my hands, and pretty much had carpal tunnel problems from the things that I do every day and want to so a lot.
Now it's my right wrist, the inside tendon of it, and it's from picking up Jet. It's pretty obvious when I pick him up, now, too. Especially when I pick him up around his chest, under his arms. That's the way we've been doing it for a while, and I guess my wrist and arm strength just haven't been quite able to keep up with Jet's weight gains. Growl. My arms and shoulders have been sore ever since Jet was born. I'm not used to having to pick up that kind of weight repeatedly, and now that Jet's nearly seventeen pounds, it's a pretty big weight to sling into the air.
I'm icing it today, and trying not to use it too much. I'll probably do the things I did with the other wrist problem, i.e. try different ways of doing what I need to do. I'll probably puzzle Jet a lot by picking him up different ways today, and holding him in the sling instead of in my arms. Those should help. Still, it's a pain, and if it's still pretty bad tonight, I might go in and have it looked at and get told that I shouldn't use it and should ice it regularly.
Then again, they might actually give me something more or less useful to do with it.
