Success at Last!!!!
Anyone who knows me knows that I judge my hands each day on how I drive. I haven't been able to go far for years. My last surgery was 2009. I just don't have strength or endurance to go far. Well my husband had a procedure done and couldn't drive the 20 miles home from the hospital. I knew this ahead of time. I did this: stayed off the internet, walked for good cirulation, ate high fiber foods (believe it or not I found a CTS diet), I did my hand strenghening exercises and I did hand stretching exercises. When it came down to it, I was able to drive the 20 miles. I'm proud of myself. I had sore fingertips when it was over and about a half hour later my fingertips felt like they were burning, but I did it!! That's the most I've driven in years. So it can be done! Oh and one more thing----Posture. I try to sit up straight and improve my posture all day long. I have been a sloucher for years. Since that day I have been online too much. I know this, but it's been rainy and so I have to work towards staying offline more.
