I was looking forward to my appointment with the OT, really hoped it would provide good pain relief ideas and ways to cope at work and with daily life. But another person who just didn't listen. So disappointing. She said I'm already doing the guarding, joint protection techniques she would suggest. Well of course I am, if one position hurts you find one that doesn't hurt so much!! I've already found different ways to hold a cup, a book etc! She said the wrist guards I'm using are better than ones she would make. Sh did at least give me specific exercises to do!
And I am so fed up with people only looking at one part of me. I've seen different people for my thumbs, my wrists, my heels, my toes!! Who do I see about my ankle?? Where's the holistic care we are meant to be provided with? Even the rheumatologist refered me to a hand surgeon, and discharged me!
End of rant! Thanks for being there for me to rant to.
