Tingly wingly pingly

That’s what a friend of mine (I’m sure Maggie can guess who) has started calling me, since I mentioned this strange tingling in my hands and wrists that’s started this morning and won’t go away. It’s both hands, so figure it’s not just a random trapped nerve thing. Most likely it’s swelling in my elbows or shoulders caused by the R.A. Yes, that’s the R.A. that’s supposed to be under control with the MTX. Hrumph!! I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.

Hmm, maybe if I repeat ten times I might actually do it. Some sort of mantra or affirmation:

I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.
I will be bothered to phone the R.A. Helpline next week.

I wonder if copy and paste was cheating though?

  1. I don’t think copy/paste is cheating :)
    Definitely a good idea to ask about the tingling. Hope it’s easily dealt with.

  2. Hi Polly — Has the tingling abated? How are you otherwise? For punishment repetition to work, it really takes a chalkboard, chalk, and the eyes of a bored teacher boring into your back. I’m afraid you’ll need to try something else to tamp that “bothering” down tight in your mind. Heheheheh… good luck with that. And I hope you WILL bother first thing Monday … Keep us posted?

  3. So does that make Ruth DMTWP now?!

  4. Not sure if anyone ever reads comment replies, but yes, the tingling has abated! LOL – I fear you’re right about the need for a blackbord (squeaky chalk essential) and teacher with bored eyes boring into your back, but I’m glad that at least Warm Socks doesn’t think I was cheating. ;o) I think I should probably still talk to the RA lot but maybe I’ll wait until Tuesday to see if I have a reaction to the MTX on Monday night, like I did last week. I’m probably feeling so (comparatively) rough because I haven’t got enough MTX inside me after last week’s fun and games on the stomach front!

  5. No, ’cause I’m not TWP anymore. ;o)

  6. I read comment replies (when I remember to check the little box so that I get email notification). :)
    Glad to hear things are looking up.
