Once upon a time, I was a guitarist.I used to draw cartoons, that got published. I wrote several letters a week. I had good handwriting. I also made jewellery. Then I developed osteoarthritis. Began in my right thumb. Twinges at first; then serious pain. Now, my thumb & index finger are very distorted and painful. There's no relief from the pain.
