SEVERAL years ago I shattered the end of my ulna and destroyed the cartlidge in my wrist. I lost most of my motion in my wrist at that point. Recently actually February 12, 2013 my wrist was totally fused.
I am just a little sad today. It was a bad weather night. Rain, wind, humidity throught the charts. It actually causes pain in my wrist. I still have pain on a daily basis regardless, still struggling with the decision of fusing my wrist my left wrist. I am left handed, learning how to cut meat for the family, cutting pizza, stirring food while cooking. I can write for short amounts of time, but it causes pain. I can type mostly but I can't rest my wrist on the wrist rest because that causes pain. Washing dishes, I have to do in stages, because the pressure of the scrubbing hurts. Today EVERYTHING HURTS.
I am a human barometer. When I was young I kind of made fun of my parents complaining about the weather causing their aches to act up. I am now on of those people at the age of 40.
I never expected my world to turn out this way. I try to help out in my household as much as I can, but since I did this my ability has decreased dramatically. Now since the most recent surgery I am able to do even less. I have moments at being very hard on myself because I can't help out. I have been on the couch since three this morning. The pain was pretty unbearable, holding back some tears today. Then besides physically hurting, makes me question myself. I feel kind of worthless at moments being is that I can't help out as much as I think I should. My husband and kids are gifts from heaven stepping in everytime I have one of these days.
I hope anyone who struggles with anytime of pain has an understanding family and friends like I do........don't be tough on yourself. God only gives out what you can handle. I can handle this disabilty, I will not let it run my life ever though some ays it seems like it does.
