Woe Is Me...

what am I going to do? I have a bad double case of "Mommy Thumb" aka as De Quervain Tendinitis.

What is "Mommy Thumb" aka as De Quervain Tendinitis?

It is an irritation of the tendons in the thumb that can cause mild to severe pain in and around the thumb, but can also radiate up the arm. Doesn't that sound lovely?

How did I get it?

From doing something so awful as to pick my Bry-girl up.

How can I prevent it?

Either stop picking her up or change the way that I do it.

What are the treatments?

Take lots of Tylenol. If it keeps up, beg the doctor to look for a stronger pain killer that won't transfer to Bry-girl when she nurses.

So, am I the only Silly Mommy that keeps getting this?
