My gamer's thumb* is getting worse. When I saw the osteopath, he said it might take up to 3 weeks for the cortisone to work its magic and make me feel better. I'm counting the days.
In the mean time, I'm mostly upset because the afflicted hand is my right, which is the hand I use for one-handed cartwheels. What will I do if I can't do any more one-handed cartwheels?
*it's a tendinitis-like condition actually called De Quervain's Syndrome, but is referred to as "mother's thumb", which I think is lame. it's also called "gamer's thumb", which is, obviously, what I'm going with.
