In my role as Auntie Stress, I am often shaking a lot of hands at networking events.
From an early age, my parents taught me to use a firm handshake. As much as I like the idea of this, I’m afraid that I can no longer do it.
In fact, I now dread a firm handshake, as it causes me excruciating pain.
My sister suggested that I wear one of my splints whenever I go an event where handshaking is involved.
As people often don’t notice the condition of my hands, the splint serves as a visual reminder for the handshakers to go easy.
