Hands Free

So, today I went in to see the physiotherapist and we had a little chat about the state of my hands and we've agreed that I need to see someone a bit more specialist to talk about the loss of function in my left hand because of there being no mechanical injury, but (ahem) on the other hand, there was good news. Almost all of the swelling's gone from my right arm, both arms have regained a near-normal range of motion and my neck's starting to be supple again, if a bit crackly.

...and I'd dyed my emo-bandages black especially, damn!

So, in a couple of weeks, I'm going to talk to a consultant about general things to do with my health, my hands and where my head's at and find out whether or not there's any real cause for concern. The physio said it's a good idea to still take it easy and said it's a good thing I'm looking for a job less likely to re-injure my hands, so I'm now at the point where I'm being able to stop devoting so much time to trying to fix all the myriad little health things I've got going on at the moment and I can actually get on with the business of living.

Just in time for shame, too. You'll be there, yes? It's amused me no end to see my name in Boyz.
