Last night, I sat down and grabbed the paper...then dropped it in shock. There was this sudden and very sharp pain piercing my left hand, and I looked at it thinking I might have banged it on something. I couldn't see anything wrong with it, and still can't, but when I woke up this morning the pain was even worse and by now, it's excruciating. It's not just my hand and wrist anymore, it shoots out to the shoulder, too. I wonder what it can be. Maybe I've trapped a nerve or something? It's not red, swollen or hot(ter) to the touch so I doubt it's an infection...and RSI? Well, it's possible I suppose...but I can't see myself as an RSI-victim!
If it's not better by tomorrow, I think I'll go see my GP about it.

Anyway, as a right-handed person, I never realised how much I actually do use and need my left. Such simple everyday occurances as getting dressed or carrying a foodtray to the table in the office canteen, all of a sudden have become major obstacles.
