    Oh NO!

    What happened?

    I landed funny on my wrist and then decided to go to the driving range. Poor decision making.

    Oh, that sucks!

    I spent several weeks last year with my arm in a sling. There is nothing like the humbling feeling of having to ask for assistance with things like using the restroom or tying your shoes as a grown-up.

    I hope your wrist feels better soon!

    I’m sorry. Will the black thing cause it to heal quickly? I know little about sprained wrists.

    And . . . you play golf?

    (Free free to answer these questions much later if doing so in the near future would represent an uncomfortable amount of typing.)

    It’s feeling so much better now, thanks! I’m having a little trouble gripping things, but otherwise have so much less painful horrors than I did earlier this week. i thought it was broken for sure…but it’s not! YAY!

    I wear the black thing when I sleep and that’s made a big difference because I must do somethign bad, wrist-wise, while I thrash around in my sleep.

    And yes, sometimes I do play golf, but not very well. I’ve played only 9-hole courses – not yet an 18. I can drive a ball pretty far – but beyond that I’m pretty terrible. I should take lessons.
