Be careful not to break your hand, forearm, or radius you’ll deeply regret it.
I’m impressed how quickly our bones heal in middle age, and yet it’s one of the longest ordeals I’ve ever experienced. The latter is obviously my frustration from appointments, X-rays and arm wraps for the hand that is dominant and comes in the handiest. It’s a foreign feeling to have felt my plate move once in awhile as well.
What is most perplexing is how often I’ve broken limbs growing up on a farm, and from a long era in my life where I went skiing every weekend, and yet none of those fractures gave me as much physical pain as this time.
I still threw away the pain pills and pretty damn proud I do it every single time they’ve been given to me.
If I can help in any way, my secrets to fighting any of your particular pain or feeling uncomfortably are; ice packs, heating pad, iced chamomile tea without sugar, L-Theanine, clonazepam, (no interaction), hot baths with epsom salt, and Magnesium Taurate with your daily choice in tequila.
INTERESTING FACT: see the bunched up skin on my right hand fingers? That’s how swollen that hand has been for way too LONG.
