Working on January's BJP piece, but I'm having a very difficult time working on it. First, I have had carpal tunnel syndrome for about 20 years. It has been bothering me so much lately, and my right hand especially has been hurting so much to hold a needle that I can only work for maybe 15 minutes at a time and then I have to stop. And, on top of that, I have had only ONE cigarette since Thursday. I have smoked nearly a pack a day for a very long time, and I've gone cold turkey (except for 1/2 of one on Thursday and 1/2 of one cigarette on Friday). I have not been able to concentrate worth a damn...all I can think about is how much I want to go have a smoke. I'm thinking that if I go buy a pack that I'll have just one. But my husband says that will turn into two and then the whole pack and I'll be right back where I was. Dammit! I don't want to listen to reason.
So the point of this rant is that between my painful right hand and my nicotine withdrawals, I am not getting very far on my January piece, and I'm having a hard time with concentration and continuity on it.
I shall prevail!!!! I will overcome these obstacles and finish on time!!!! lol How's that for positive thinking?
