Default Therapy Pen

Itís been 2-3 months since Iíve turned anything. Docs are not sure yet what I am dealing with, be it psoriatic arthritis, carpal tunnel, or just a lot of inflammation, (I am calling it healed in Jesusí name!) but I hadnít been able to hold a chisel tight enough to turn as my grip in both hands had been really weak. I just grip grip a pen well enough to write. I have been doing a lot better after 10 days of prednisone so last night I gave it a go. A Fishers of Men kit and stained glass blank. Sorry for the poor pic but I have never made any claim of being a shutterbug! (Side note, I had several labs ran last week and meet with the Rheumatologist this afternoon to see what is up)

Trusting that you will improve and the medications will not be needed. Sending a PM.

You still have your penturning skills. Hope you get your issues worked out. Good to see you posting a pen again.

I've only seen that hardware at Wood Pen Pros (the web site, i've not been to Jimmy's in Hawaii!!)

@ Cozee--best wishes. Been on an injectable med for 14 years for RA, and thanks to that miracle i'm still just aging normally. Those who went through the testing to make that happen have been a gift to our family!!

Sorry Greg, I can't see the photo but from what I'm reading it sounds very nice. I hope things change for the better soon.
