My spirits are bright and soon I will be in sight...

Hello you lovely, thoughtful people out there,

I thought I must do a special post to thank you for all those healing and loving comments you have been leaving me. It means so much to me... specially because my spirits seemed to take a beating for the last week or so.

The first doctor I saw kind of made me feel like a crumpled tissue paper because he did not comfort me in any way, rather, he just plainly said that I should not use my heavy punches and that I should delegate it to someone... (Zeenya is more than unwilling to do any craft work and she has enough homework to do, so I cannot pressurise her into  child labour - Lol!)

I took a second opinion from another doctor who said that it was not a ganglion but a small bone that was jutting out... he even tried to push it in but that did not work. 

 After doing some research on the Internet, I learned that a Chiropractic may be of help to me so off I marched to one and lo and behold! He has asked me to rest my hands for a week and keep away from heavy usage. The Chiro also felt that it was a ganglion but I am not really bothered now because my hands are in the right hands now.. (Pun not intended!)

To cut a long story short, I had my first ultrasound treatment today... and hopefully I will be on the mend soon. But my spirits are already mended and that is what matters most, right?

Sorry for that long medical bulletin but I was so touched with all the tender, loving care (TLC) you good hearted souls have given me that I thought I must do a post to thank you all. And the waffling happened along with it. Lol.

Thanks again for putting up with this long story.

Hugs and I will soon be visiting you all as well,

Hi Monica,
It's lovely to hear that you're feeling much brighter. But don't be tempted to undo what is being done. Do as you're told, rest your hand and you will be back to crafting soon x

So sorry to hear you've been in pain, Monica. I have the same think in my hands. I've found a power punch to be a great help in the craft studio. It uses leverage to push the punch and was worth every penny. If you can't find on, let me know and I'll send you a link.
