Ergonomics and Heat

Frustrated by continued pain when I write, I took some time today to scout around a variety of stores for a possible solution. I believe I found two.

Well, actually, I bought three things, but I haven't cracked the wine yet, so I can't speak to its value. But the ergonomic keyboard and cape-style heating pad I purchased are proving their worth.

Leaned back in bed with a couple feather pillows for support, snug and warm with the heating pad cozy around my neck and shoulders, and keyboard on my lap, I wrote. For an hour. Without pain. And I am unbelievably grateful.

The future--despite the persistent rain--is brighter.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. ~Thomas A. Edison

Wait, they make a cape-like heating pad? Where did you get such a magical thing? Is it a Canadian product?

I bought it at London Drugs; I'm not sure what your equivalent is. Here is a link that shows the model... http://www.sunbeam.com/ca/productdetail.aspx?section=health-and-home&cid=7&pid=6375

Hopefully you can find it down your way because it works well; I love mine. :)
