Morning Thoughts and Cubital Tunnel

So my plan to clean didn’t quite work, instead of spending an hour on one room I spent the day on one room which I didn’t finish 😂. This happens more than I’d like to admit lol, that said the living room looks better and the kitchen is part way there. If really like a dining table for my kitchen, something small that folds away or those ones where the chairs fit perfectly underneath. Adding that to my list of things to buy when I’m back working. I’m not currently working due to having cubital tunnel in both arms, if you’ve never heard of it, it’s like carpal tunnel but a different nerve trapped in a different place. The nerves are trapped in my elbows, it causes pain in my lower arms, and hands (and occasionally I get pain in my upper arms now). I also get numbness and pins and needles sometimes together, sometimes one or the other. My job as a coach entails a lot lifting and driving so it was causing a lot of pain leaving me unable to sleep, therefore making lots of mistakes etc. I decided I had to take a break while they tried to fix it. I see the surgeon in January to work out what they can next. I had tests done, which left me sore, looks harmless enough and not many people seem to experience actual pain but my arms were lightly offended by the procedure. The image below was borrowed from Wikipedia but it’s the best one I’ve found. Sorry I’ve not credited the photographer, they didn’t leave any details.

So yeah, that’s me so far, I have lots of ideas and almost no budget to do them with, so you’ll get a lot of me making stuff and customising bits. On top of trying to decorate my home I have to try to keep myself sane as I hate being off sick and hate being skint, so you’ll hear about my self-care too. Right, I’m bored of being in bed, time to start the day.

Never thought I'd see the day that studying became something I enjoyed, but here we are. My blog is where I put my thoughts, I also plan to start a blog of short stories, with a new prompt for each story.
