MRI’s and Apple Pies

Since February when I was finishing up hair school in Kansas, I’ve been having these sharp pains in my right wrist, namely on the outer edge near where that little bump of a bone lives. It’s not like I had a klutz attack (which I so often do) and fell on it; it just started hurting after wrapping a perm on the cutest 94-year-old little lady named Helen. Since then, the pain has been getting more and more intense (especially working in retail where I am always typing and unlocking doors and lifting heavy shelves and folding and all the ‘ings you can think of).

Not very exciting; had to take out all of my piercings, which isn’t the biggest pain save for putting a captive bead ring back into my septum (which I will go to my favorite friendly tattooer guy in PA). I had to lay in the superman position (Right arm straight up, face down with a pillow) COMPLETELY STILL for 60 minutes. I tried to nap but was unsuccessful. In any case, it’s done now and I’ll find out more next Thursday!

So after that was all said and done, I wanted nothing more than to make a big mess in the kitchen.

Enter: Big Mess.

There’s always something so wonderful about the smell of an apple pie in the oven. Its the perfect treat for summer or fall/winter and its the most American thing someone can do (in my own opinion.) In any case, heres a few photos of my afternoon apple pie adventure.

  1. Hmmm apple pie :3 my favourite, which kind of makes me American as it seems, hahaha.
    The specialist who examined your wrist probably excluded classic like carpal tunnel so I got my fingers crossed like crazy that its just a little thing and you’ll be better soon :3

    • Carpal Tunnel would cause issues on the inside of my wrist in areas such as my thumb. This mess is on the outside; the pinky finger side so we shall find out tomorrow what the problem is! Eek!!
