Broken Hands

For the past 10 months, I thought 2009 was a pretty bad year and couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Around New Year 2010, however, I “broke” my left hand.  According to the doc, it’s “just” an inflammation.  I think the formal name is deQuervain’s Tendinitis, but I wouldn’t quote myself on that :p   The cause was unknown – most likely due to overuse with the combination of office work, gym, and video games.  Or maybe it was as simple as a cursed bad luck 😮

Well, four weeks later, as this problem was seemingly on its way to recovery, it got symmetrically reproduced on my other hand.  Now I feel like a big cripple with very restricted range of motion on either hand.  Performing certain simple daily tasks has become quite tricky.

Not sure what to say other than “this sucks”.  After one already unlucky year, this is not my preferred way of starting a new year.  But the benefit of being an Asian person is that, we do follow two calendars.  Therefore, instead of calling both 2009 and 2010 unlucky, I can simply think of the year of ox as the terrible one and pray for a real sweet year of tiger 🙂
