Pardon me while I whine
Man this is getting to me. I somehow injured the tendons in my arm a month ago and haven't detected since. It's my swinging arm. I can't even lift a glass of soda. I'm having severe withdrawal. Ive worn the brace religiously, babied it, cursed it, and smothered it in the whole family of liniments. I finally saw the dr yesterday and he put me on a dose pack of prednisone. That stuff runs me up the wall but I'll take it. Lol. If he told me I had to eat dog poop to recover I'd seriously consider it!
The kicker is I think I did it while lifting some light weights so I wouldn't lose the muscle I'd built while detecting this summer and spring. I have a very stressful job and detecting is my stress release, much more of this and I might not have a job. Lol thanks for listening! Y'all have a good one and find a bunch!

My sympathy card is in the mail Then again, you may not get it because I don't know your name or address, nor did I put any postage on it Hope you at least smiled to ease your pain there.

I deal in reality
I pulled something in my shoulder about 3 days ago. I did it trying to pull some limbs from a tree before getting the tractor and removing them. The next day I could barely lift my arm without knowing that I had overworked it. The following day it was ok till I got it over straight out. Today is is ok. This happens every time I use a muscle I haven't used for a long time. I guess we all have different healing rates. I am 75 and have noticed over the years that it takes longer to heal if i "baby" it. The light movement that hurts a little also helps it heal. Good luck with the arm. Frank

Come out from under your bed today...... DO SOMETHING!
If you live through the withdrawls, EASE back into it. Go slow. Don't re-injure yourself lifting that great big cache. I'll help you out... BTW, can you out-run a 63 year old? No..... maybe you should lift the cache on your own.... I can't run fast enough to steal it! Get better! TTC
Be the kind of Marine that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil yells, "Run, run! He's up!"

Really feel for ya having to take the Prednisone. That stuff makes me nervous as long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Hey they can't keep a good Hillbilly down. You will be back up and swinging in no time. Best of luck.

Thank you all so much. Yeah, I'm already feeling the effects of the prednisone but I don't have to take it long. It may be my imagination but my arm isn't aching as much today. I just hope it healed by my vacation next month. My hubby told me he would take me anywhere I want within driving distance of our home do I could metal detect to my hearts content. I plan on going to a beach with my Excal but haven't decided where yet.

Hope you get to feeling better! Maybe light exercises, then ice it after.

Put on a thong bikini, your sunglasses, a stylish broad brimmed straw hat, grab a margarita in your good hand and find some dumb bas***d to do the detector thing. He can operate it, dig the treasure and then show it to you for your approval while you stroll along with nary a care in the world. Probably works better in Hawaii, but who knows?
