Day one post injury: stay in bed all day, try not to use hand for anything, take lots of pain medication.
Day two post injury: decide it’s not a big deal, go about day like normal, don’t take any pain medication, use hand a lot. end day exhausted and in a lot of pain.
Day three post injury: attempt to find middle ground.

Why blurring sensitive information is a bad idea -
However, many people also resort to blurring sensitive numbers and text. I’ll illustrate why that is a BAD idea.
The Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), a treaty modeled after the ADA, would help change that. It would establish a framework for creating legislation and policies in other countries. And it would protect the rights and dignity of all people with disabilities, giving them greater opportunity to work, travel, and lead full and productive lives. —
Opening Doors to People With Disabilities Worldwide
The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations just approved the CRPD this morning by a vote of 12-6. Now it goes on to the full Senate for a vote, where it is expected to be voted down by Republicans. If you live in the US, tell your Senators to vote for it!
If you’re new to the “Disability Treaty” (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, CRPD) you can learn more about what that is with the handout at http://bit.ly/CRPD1Pager.
People can find tools to help them call Senators at http://disabilitytreaty.org! It provides you with phone numbers and even a script to guide you through each call. Each call is counted even if you’ve already called them before. Senators do count calls more heavily than emails, so if you feel comfortable making calls please do! You can even call after business hours and leave messages in voice mail—these calls are counted also! But if you really prefer sending emails, then you will find template emails at the link also.
You do NOT need to be legal voting age to call or email Senators. Senators in fact often LIKE hearing from underage constituents because they don’t often hear from young people. Also, they know that you will be able to vote within what is, from their perspective, only a few years. (A Senator’s tenure is six years long—depending on how old you are and how long it will be before the Senator is up for re-election, you might actually be voting age the next time they need to run! Or if not, then you’ll probably be able to vote the time after that.)
As lacrosse popularity surges, helmets could check girls’ concussions Colorado -
In girls’ lacrosse, athletes are not supposed to hit each other directly. So girls wear protective goggles and mouth guards, but not helmets or pads. The new study published Tuesday in the The American Journal of Sports Medicine shows that helmets could prevent a significant percentage of concussions. “In girls’ lacrosse, nearly 70 percent of concussions were caused by the ball actually striking the girl’s head or the stick striking her head,” said Dawn Comstock, one of the study’s lead authors and an associate professor of epidemiology at the Colorado School of Public Health. In boys’ lacrosse by comparison, athlete-to-athlete contact caused 74 percent of concussions. “That’s an important difference,” Comstock said. “Our data seem to support the call for putting girls’ lacrosse players in helmets.”
it is not a scarf knotted around my neck, it is a FASHION SLING and it is awesome. (and keeps people from bumping into me and keeps my wound from throbbing with pain with every heartbeat and also, fashion.)
