Mine has just arrived. Extremely hard to unpack but now sitting proudly on my desk. It doesn't help with typing unfortunately but any movement with the mouse is so well supported. Using the mouse has caused me so much pain of late and now it is a pleasure!

    I am pleased it's helping - we have to experiment sometimes to find what is if benefit and not but it sounds as though you have struck lucky! Enjoy your mat - I hope it's a pretty colour. :wink: DD

    I am today waiting for my Mini Chopper to arrive. So I am getting myself set up to cope.

    When I woke this morning my right hand was clenched and stuck. it took a good hour before I could move it. Very painful fingers and awful stabbing pains in wrist and arm.

    So with a lot of pain and determination I am having a blitz on my kitchen as it has been very neglected since all this started about 6 months ago. I think I will have to get some help with housework and couldn't let anyone see such greasy shelves and items on them!

    So, it's 20 mins cleaning and 10 mins rest! I am now at the stage where I wish I hadn't started. But I have all day so if that's what it takes.................
    Must be :x :x (mad)
    Cheers Fortuna
