Dear all,



We work very hard on our computers, often (always!) for hours at a time.



Repetitive motion injuries and overuse injuries are unfortunately a very real fact of using a computer, a keyboard, and a mouse for long hours at a time.



I just stumbled upon this great website, which offers some wonderful information as well as some very helpful basic freeware (you can purchase the full version, which has more options, for a few US$).



Visit this site:

Hopefully it will help us avoid increasingly crippling pains.



I\'m one of those who\'s hands have become extremely sensitive (at age 37!), and I suffer *too often* from crippling pain.



I hope that this can help avoid other translators from ending up with the same problem...



Please take care of yourself, and take care of your health



TGIF!!!



Nathalie



P.s. (Edited message): There is also this other excellent website, which gives you more details about Cumulative Trauma Disorders, how to avoid it (or find relief) and other related freeware:

Thanks! Aug 26, 2002

Thanks for your concern!



I agree that is very important to take care of ourselves. I suffered recently from tendinitis and I know what it means to be in pain.

Nathalie,



I found a more cute \"pauseme\" programme which you may like since you use this kind of software.
