This is a reply to a post by Helen regarding her Dupuytren's contracture.
So far my hands are okay. I suffered a serious injury to the median nerve in my left arm three years ago and was in agonizing pain for a month before I was able to start physical therapy. I still don't have full range of motion in the arm and have to be very careful of how much I lift. My back is also a hot mess.
I think that diabetes is a very stupid name for one of the unfunny conditions that I have. I would like to rename the condition hypopancreatism, which I feel is a much more accurate term. I have hypothyroidism, so hypopancreatism makes sense. Or we could just say that my endocrine system is a trash fire, I suppose.
Glaucoma is kind of an amusing name for a scary condition. But, so far, the interestingly-named Timolol eye drops are keeping things in check.
