Right Hand

My Right Hand

My hands have been hurting — a lot! So, I took a breather from class for a couple of weeks to rest my wrists and hands.  X-rays reveled, to no surprise, the cartilage is gone and my wrist bones are all smooshed together. My elbows are also in bad shape! Come to think of it, my shoulders are the only joints left in my entire body that have not acted up! Yet! Touch wood, now! As my Indian family would say.

I fear that the very thing
that I love to do
will be the downfall of me
— again!
