Work and other demands

I have been able to get a bit of crafting done in the last few days but nothing like I would like to have accomplished.  A big part of the reason is I am working on a project that is due at the end of November and it is taking quite a bit of my time.  Another reason my crafting has been limited is because I was told I have trigger finger in four fingers on my left hand and being a lefty means a problem.

The trigger finger is not because of repetitive stress it's because I have very small tunnels in my hands so if I get any inflammation it means I can have problems.  Yes I have already had DeQuervain syndrome in both thumbs and was told that I have small tunnels so could have problems with carpal tunnel or other issues.  The good news is after having cortisone shots in two of the finger tunnels it is a lot better but still could have shots in the other two fingers to make it all better.  It is very frustrating knowing that no matter what I do I can run into problems.  I do my crafts but do take lots of breaks and do take breaks even when I am working and no matter what I could have problems.  So for everyone that thinks carpal tunnel, trigger finger and DeQuervain are just due to repetitive stress, there are other reasons and very small tunnels is just one of them.

So I continue to work on all the items that need my attention and know that I have to watch what I do and will continue to work on the various items.  Now it's time to get to work and finish up the project and then I can work on all the other items that have been piling up waiting for my attention.
