What if the Doctor told you to stop knitting??!! ARRGGHH!!
It's official...I have a *knitting injury*! Have you ever?? I thought about this on the way home from the doctors office...how will I explain the "over use" injury--you see it's the middle finger of my left hand **wink-wink**! My pinky finger also pains me but the most painful is the middle finger.
Here last week I was so worried about hurting myself in the Granny Bowl and the opposite happened! The symptoms have been coming on since cold weather..so I immediately thought it was arthritis...they have taken blood to check for arthritis, I've been told it's tendinitis from over use! I don't like taking drugs...and am afraid of over the counter medications like Aleve (naproxin sodium) because of their side effects and possible complications! My brother did some damage to his liver with Tylenol! I've been very upfront with my Doctor and he is very understanding of my reluctance to taking medications...
In my opinion, one medication brings on another and another and....I think you get the picture. I believe this is what finally took my FIL.
With 2 items left to finish by Christmas...what do I do? Suffer through the pain and finish or give it a rest and offer "IOU's" or the unfinished piece to the recipients?
There's always my spinning wheel!!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'
