Right & Left

Awhile back, through my sister's blog, I came across the link to The Pretty Peacock
I'd been searching for a custom jewelry maker, because I desperately wanted a bangle with "my" saying on it. The words a friend repeated to me over & over, which got me through so much, and made me keep trying. This is the result.

"Dance like no one is watching, love like you have never been hurt...."

She stamped it all around the outside, and inside. It is gorgeous, and I couldn't be more pleased! Incredible craftswomanship. Check out her site!

That's for my right wrist. For my left.........

I've been having an RA flareup . Yeah, I haven't mentioned it, as I've not been in the mood to whine. Too much. LOL Anyway, years ago, not long after I was diagnosed, my right hand would go numb. Basically the same idea as carpal tunnel, and the doc actually said the surgery would help. It did. Haven't had near as much trouble from it since.

My left pinkie and ring finger have been numb for about a week now. I took aspirin, and tried to ignore. Sort of spreading into my middle finger now. I've been dropping things, and having trouble "controlling" my hand - if it is something that requires the least little bit of precision.

So, I called the doc back in my old home. I got the warnings of, if it isn't taken care of & I keep using it, that can cause further nerve damage. Duh. I know this. But "taking care of" requires either ridiculously expensive meds, or surgery. When I win the lottery, I'll set up an appointment! LOL His only other suggestion, was to try this brace. With a metal bar running down it.

Frankly, I like the ornament for my right arm, much, much better.


  1. I love SB's bracelet I got from there. That girl is good.

    Sorry about your condition. Go buy a lottery ticket.

  2. That's cool you got her a bracelet - is it childsize, or one she will grow into?

  3. That is absolutely gorgeous. I just love it.
