On the mend

I nearly didn’t write this evening and it’s a lot later then I’d usually post. I’ve currently got 7 minutes to post before midnight! I’ve had an extremely busy day and struggled to find a moment to work till now. Since I haven’t ever missed a Friday (as far as I’m aware) I couldn’t accommodate the idea of missing one.

My thumb’s doing pretty well – still a bit numb and I get weird pins and needles down the side sometimes. Hopefully this will subside. I’ve been given the all-clear by my consultant and physio and been advised that I’ll have about 80% function in my hand now. It’s sore sometimes (apparently due to the trauma) but I just need it to work for the essentials – driving, working, eating, cooking. I know I can’t do certain things but I have to accept that and appreciate the things I can do. It does make me sad but I have to try not to think about it, keep busy and focus.

If I think back to my thumb ‘reveal’ video a while back, this is an enormous improvement and it looks almost normal now.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
