You know what happens when you don’t slow yourself down? Your body slows you down. I’ve been working like crazy– finishing the book, submitting my tenure application, and getting ready for the VONA workshops. Yesterday, my left hand just gave out on me. The doctor says it is carpel tunnel and I have to stop typing before I give myself an even more serious problem. So no blogging intil Monday, at least.
Luckily, my doctor is not afraid to throw a pill at the problem. I’m going to wear my brace, take my pain pills and vitamins, and sip a little tea, and watch a little TV. I’ve got two delicious books on my night table– The Grace of Silence and Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self.
So, on the agenda is reading and chilling. I used to do these things all the time. I’m sure it’ll come back to me.
