I r winnar!  
Yay, I finally won my worker's comp claim! They told me yesterday they were cutting my check for my back benefits, and as of my last doctor's appointment I qualify for future benefits as well! I have no clue how much I'm getting, but I learned about my mother's thought process:

Mother: When you get your check, want to put it toward the down payment on an apartment and I'll pay the rent until you can go back to work?
Me: *Wondering what the catch is* Okay, but I still need furniture and stuff...
Mother: Well, I'll be living with you so you'll use my furniture and things. I can afford the monthly rent, but I can't afford a down payment.
Me: ~_~

And if you want to know about the doctor's appointment, after the doctor shocked the hell out of my arm and stuck seven needles into my neck and arm (ahhh, that takes me back) they told me that it's hard to see carpal tunnel in people as young as me because their nerves build up risidual strength and hide the damage, and the damage has to be really extensive to show up, but they'll treat me for carpal tunnel, and if I don't have it just yet or if it's still mild that should prevent it from getting worse, and if I do have it it will make it better. No word on whether that includes surgery or not, but I am thinking not.

Oh, and I finished watching all of FMA in one marathon this morning. (Well, if by "marathon" one means "episodes 45-51".)

Congratulations! I'm glad you finally won the Workman's Comp.
So now you'll have $ for Otokon, right? I hate having the test for carpal tunnel. Mine must be pretty bad because my nerve damage showed on both hands.

Did you ever get an Xray of your neck & back? Reason I ask is because my carpal tunnel symptoms on both hands has gotten better since I started therapy. What happens is the nerve from your neck to hand can get irrittated from the bone if the opening is too small and it causes numbness and carpal tunnel symptoms. Just something I learned from my probelms.

Yup, I have money for Otakon now. I was wondering if I would even get money to actually make it without using my credit card (and then going without a costume and broke). Now I can finish my costumes, too. ^_^

As for the neck thing, that's what the needles in my neck were for: to check the nerves in my neck. They said there didn't seem to be any problems there.

read too fast...missed the neck part. the neck is not always part of the standard carpal tunnel test. guess it is good that is not seriouis now.

My mom was having problems but after wearing the brace is better now.
