My wrist is driving me crazy. It's the carpal Tunnel I'm afraid. I’ll have to reduce my keyboard & mouse time for a while. Rest assured because I’ll be back to post and comment soon. Thanks for stopping by!

Yup. I'll bet you do after all that typing for the last post.
Thumb tingling? Weakness? Aching?

I got the same thing from designing all day and drawing all night (in addition to mountain biking).

I recommend rage of motion exercises and ice (keep it on until it hurts a lot and then doesn't) then heat (everybody likes heat).

Our office had this person come in to tell us all how to sit and type to reduce the possibility of CTS.

Or, you could just get a Doom Glove!

Sorry to hear about that, Swine. :(

Are you SURE it was work related?

(I really am a 14 year-old boy in the body of a 40 year-old man.)

get well! with my seventeen blogs, i'm always afraid i'm gonna get hit with that, myself.

slightly OT: man, was Byrne's FF run fun comics!

Dean: Dirty mind. Dirty, dirty mind!

You should hire a swanky secretary. That's what all us rich dudes have.

Hey, you going to eat that bologna sandwich?

Hope you feel better soon. Wrist pain ain't cool - especially for the computer generation.

That sucks! Hopefully, rest and checking your ergonomics will do the trick.

Arkonbey – Yeah, my Stumptown post had a lot to do with it. My wife has these cool Icy hot patches that really helped.

It’s funny because Craig Thompson told us how he had to quit Dark Horse because his carpal T got so bad from working all day and drawing his own stuff at night. I thought about you when he said that.

Dean – it must be work related, although I was trying to do a few push ups… the traditional kind.

Rob – I find your stamina incredible. How do you do it?

It’s funny I don’t wanna see any new Byrne titles except maybe Star Trek (I think he should have done that a long time ago) but I can’t get enough of his 80s work especially the FF.

Arkonbey – he’s always been that way :D

Randal – Well, I tried to get my SO to do it but English is her second language…rats!

EW – I think it started for me with video arcades.

Snab – and stup doing push ups… ☹
