I have arthritis in my thumbs. The legacy of a lifetime of hitting the spacebar and being the only one in the house with hands strong enough to twist off stubborn jar tops (also I suspect from a lifetime of exercise on a keyboard - and learning to type on an old fashioned sit up and beg Underwood).
Who remembers carbon paper, flimsies in a range of colours for different departments, those flat round typewriter erasers? Good grief, it feels like museum piece now. Well, obviously it is. Like me - another reason for the arthritis!
I've tried glucosamine - the doc's only suggestion. It's not working. Any ideas?
