Dorothea (caveat lector) is strugling with something looking very much like RSI and found aforementioned post the evening before seeing the doctor again. Not good for morale.
I just read that post and I'm so so so grateful that I don't have RSI. I was worried once about it, but luckaly it wasn't RSI after all. I did go and see a doctor about it, who send me to a "cesar therapy". I learned there how to improve the way I stand and sit. That made a world of difference.
Anybody worrying whether they're approaching RSI: see a doctor. Are you at a university? You've got a doctor there which you can see for free. And that Cesar therapy is covered by your medical insurance. You can ruin your life with it: don't! See that doctor!
