I have been dealing with tennis elbow in my right arm for about two years. This year it developed in my right arm, too. I will never again snicker silently when someone complains about their tennis elbow. I will never again think, "Yeah, like THAT'S dire."
This HURTS. It hurts all the time, most especially when I wake up. It makes for one more thing on my list of Things That Make Me Pull The Covers Back Up Over My Head. I never realized how many things I do with my forearms, at least how many things I do that stress them. I've become very friendly with our bottle of ibuprofen. I also have brand spankin' new forearm braces, which are supposed to help while I do chores, but I think they help because it's really difficult to DO chores while wearing them, so I just pass some off to Mary, getting some rest in the process.
There's just SO much to DO!
