At some stage last week, I did something that caused a trapped nerve under my shoulder blade. If anybody has any tips or suggestions as to how to live with it, (without cutting my arm off) I would be pleased to hear them! As a consequence, everything is being carried out ridiculously slowly and with much drama, of course. Certain actions, like unloading the dishwasher and sitting in a chair with about 4 cushions are very easy, and of course I can still eat and drink. Phew! Other things that you think would use the same actions are really hard - hanging the washing out, writing, lying down.. and getting a bra on has been a trial, really. It turns out that however well evolved, Mr D hasn't mastered the treble hook and eye system. For which I think I am profoundly grateful!
