Unless you have one hand, it is easy to underestimate the importance of wrists. Until today, I assumed they were like kidneys, in that you only really need one in order to fully function.
How mistaken I was.
Following an awkward tumble, my left wrist is the size of an elephant’s dick. Pathetically, this has led to total debilitation. Such is the pain, I have variously struggled to dress, read, open doors, eat, and (bizarrely) walk.
As for typing – well, let’s just say a spider would have had less trouble writing this entry with one of his left legs.
