Today was another one of those little reminders life gives you when you’re somewhere between 49 and 51 years of age.
For about a year, I’ve been having a little pain in my hands, and it’s been pretty consistent for the past few months. Being a guy whose work involves playing the piano a lot, this can be a little disconcerting. Which is something I don’t like; whenever I can, I try to stay involved with concerting things, not disconcerting things.
So my Dr. today took a few tests, asked a lot of questions, and is thinking I may have arthritis. And then I’m pretty sure she said in her mind but not out loud, “Because you’re old.”
Well, since some of the best musicians I know have this affliction, and manage to deal with it just fine, I’m not too worried about it. I’ve started taking some stuff to help with the pain.
But I just have one question for the makers of Glucosamine with Condroitin – Since your stuff is for people with pain, possibly in their hands, shouldn’t your containers be a little easier to open?
**Note – I’m waiting for someone to ask me if I’m available or able to play this or that project, and then I’m going to say, “What, are you kidding? I’m an OLD HAND at that!” Ha ha
