My right wrist started hurting back in February! Ouch! Carpal Tunnel! And there were two possible culprits - 1, my retail job, or 2 - and I think the more likely because I was hurting my hands a bit while typing more recently, my keyboard and mouse setup!

We are moving from RedCircle to Spreaker, and will also be moving the Exclusives to our new Patreon campaign which we will have more information on soon!
