I’m not writing. No blogging, no Twitter, no E24. I have tendinitis, a repetitive strain injury, in my right hand. My physiotherapist says it’s probably De Quervain syndrome. I just know that I have a bump on my right wrist, and writing (typing or by hand), as well as using a mouse or trackpad, hurts – and keeps hurting for days.
I can read. I can dance. But I can’t write. I am slowly typing this with my left hand. For almost as long as I can remember, writing has been my all-purpose solution – my work, my fun, my therapy. Without it, I don’t feel like myself – but I will be back.
