Hi gang,
so you may be wondering wh why I disappeared so utterly off the web. Well, to make a long story short, I've damaged the nerves in my elbows. This has banned me from typing. Recently, I went to visit the doctor, and he told me that he thought the damage was probably permanent.


So I spent a night having hysterics, and then I got over it. I'm posting this via voice recognition software, and a touch pad mouse I'm using with my feet. Because if this damage is permanent-if this is just how it is-then it's time for me to start thinking about ways to adapt. I want back on the Web. I miss you guys. So this post may be the last one for a long while- or the first of many. We'll see.

how hideous. I am glad it recognises your voice and hope adapting isn't as frightful as it sounds. perhaps you can also post here using voice posts and other people can type it up for you.

and oh you replied to my post with your voice and feet. that is so sweet.

I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope the technology works for you.

I've been heartbroken to hear about your ongoing tribulations. weren't they going to try surgery if your condition didn't improve with physical therapy? anyway, not that it's easy, but I hope you continue to find ways to move on and live a full, technologically-enabled life. because we miss you!

Apparently I missed this at the time, probably swamped by school & not checking LJ.
I'm wondering now if you're back from the UK or still there. Wondering if you'll get notified that I've posted this here. And wondering if you have particular aversion to chiropractic that you might want to discuss. I can just listen and not try to convince you of its merits. But if it's purely a financial thing, I'd like to offer to help in that arena. I'm biased not by my attendance of a chiropractic college but by my prior experiences into thinking there's a good chance that chiropractic care at least has a chance of helping despite the bleak prognosis offered by the neurologists. In fact, a former classmate of mine here was told by several practitioners (including a couple at this school) that her condition of numbness/tingling/pain radiating into both her arms but R more than L was most likely permanent, but she has at this point accomplished almost total reduction of symptoms. At the very least, before something as drastic as surgery, which I don't believe has a high efficacy rate to begin with, perhaps this is something that could be looked into...
much love, hoping the UK has treated you well & we can possibly talk soon.
