Wrist troubles

A week ago, I did way too much catalog maintenance (aka mouse-heavy work). Although I knew I hurt my wrist then, I continued to overdo it, practicing using GIMP for a presentation I was going to be doing (which is now over, yipee!). Now, just a few minutes of using a mouse causes me pain.

So, until I heal up, it'll be as little mouse usage as possible for me. Computer junkie me is not pleased. None of this should interfere with my current posting schedule, though, because I had a few posts scheduled before I hurt myself. Now I'm going to go to bed with my nice new wrist brace. Btw, if this is how I'm supposed to hold my wrist, I've apparently been using a computer wrong for years.


  1. I've had mousing pain, before. The best thing to do is take a break; let the wrist rest. It's a nuisance. Wish you well. :)

  2. Thanks. :) I'm trying my best to use mice at work and home with my left hand instead of my right. This weekend's been a record for me - I think I've only been on my computer 30 minutes total!
