That has been the number one thing coming out of my mouth as I too have been crippled with the same mysterious hand pain as Mrs. F today. It happened to me this morning while simply reaching for the baby sling (carrier) off the coat rack.
Mrs. F: "What's wrong?"
Me: "My hand. I was just reachin--"
Mrs. F, finishes the sentence, "...up like this? And it hurts in here...?"
Me: "Yeah. Is this what you have? Oh, shit."
Mrs. F said it feels like her hand is broken. It doesn't. I broke my hand two years ago. This is worse.
There's never been much question who around here is the stoic and who is the pussy...and let me just say, I have a new respect for Mrs. F after today.
It seems we have the exact same situation with the radiating pain in the thumb/forefinger area, that just kills with one false move. Caused by a pinched nerve in the shoulder, to which I am assigning blame to that fucking Baby Sling.
How else would we each have the same freak nerve injury?
Piece of shit.
I hope this is better tomorrow. Mrs. F's had it for days at a time before, and I might be too big a wimp to handle that...
If I could make a fist, I'd knock that smile off your face Sling-Lady...
