Sometimes there are just these amazingly disruptive things that happen in life when you aren’t paying well enough attention.
That happened to me after my son was born.
I am a healer. I use my hands to heal.
I am a writer. I use my hands to write.
I am a homemaker. I use my hands for everything. Who’d’a thunk it?
There was a wake-up call for me when my son was still little. I have always been the kind of person that is fine with suffering through the pain of a job well done.
Well, I think it may have been over-done this time. This is a lesson that I hold dear- an early example that I made out of myself proving that being a martyr is not a good way to have or build a family.
I decided to push through the pain of carrying a baby around in a basket- not a bassinet, mind you. So every time I trekked down my hill of a driveway with my sleeping son, my hands would absolutely fall asleep and hurt. Yikes. I should have taken the hint and changed what I was doing. NOPE. I have carpel tunnel syndrome now. I’ve had it for 3 years.
Since I have started seeing the chiropractor again, I hardly ever have flair ups so I finally get the sleep that a mother with a toddler needs!
Take a look at this article I wrote on treating carpel tunnel through chiropractic and then come back here to tell me about your experiences or ask questions or just whatever!!
