New Job


I hurt. I'd forgotten what it's like to stand on concrete for 8 hours...ouch. I expected a few aches and pains as my body started working like it hasn't in a while....I mean, busdriving is an easy job, so is the library position. I didn't expect my hands to start hurting. I hurt them a few years back at a local factory...plastic parts for vacuum cleaners, and they didn't provide a machine to put these caps together so we had to do them by hand...and my hands were screaming the next day. I ended up going to the doctors, he diagnosed it as tendonitis, and taking a break from work didn't help them...I ended up having to go to therapy because my muscles were stiffening up and I was loosing the use of my hands...$1500 later and much prayer from my church family and it got so that they only bothered me if I were to type a lot, so I had curtailed back until that no longer bothered me either. So, they hardly ever hurt any more...until I started my new job. It's really disappointing, as I would like to have a full time job and the pay that goes with it...and I would never have expected "jogging" newspapers would cause them to hurt again...keep me in your prayers, y'all.

You know, I don't think there is any tendonitis in heaven. let's not stand for it on earth. Be healed in the name of Jesus Christ!

Tendonitis? Yikes!

May the Lord bring healing to your muscles, joints and nerves.

Make sure you take care of yourself! It will get better.

Amen to all that! It's getting a little better...hands still feel sore, but not as bad as at first. trying to keep them moving and am taking Advil which is an anti-something or other that I can't spell today. They worked us over an hour and a half this morning...which is ok, but boy is it tiring!
