So it turns out I have a touch of carpal tunnel (which is apparently reversible) and a combination of my own and the doctor's solutions, I am on the mend. (Though it could be the 800 mg of pain reliever talking.)

In any case, my fabulous link list is getting long so tonight, I'm working it… Here are the links that helped heal me, or at least made were worth tweaking my wrist to read, organized with the help of the twelve steps to recovery.

Wristguards 1. We admitted we were powerless–that our lives had become unmanageable.
Given A Shovel, Americans Dig Deeper Into Debt (NYT)
A fabulous article about debt in America. If you can identify with any of these problems, step up and admit your life has become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
For Some Products, Prices Have Been Falling
Carpe Diem reminds us of the bright side and restores those of us in hysteria over the economy to our senses.

3. Made a decision to turn our will, and our lives, over to the care of God as we understood Him.
Top Five Conspiracies of Science
A fellow Maine blogger at Leave The Lights On has some pretty interesting stuff to say about scientific theories. I don't necessarily agree but thought enough of the article to put it on my list of things to mull over.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Are Your PR Efforts Working?
Kiplingers challenges us to take an inventory of our PR efforts. Hopefully you are doing things like setting measurable goals and objectives but it doesn't hurt to have a remind.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Carnival of Money Stories
Hosted at Stop the Ride, a bunch of us shared our money stories, some of which involved our wrongs.

6. We entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
I am certainly ready for the massage I scheduled next week to remove all my defects!

So since my arm is going numb, shameless promotion continues tomorrow with the other six steps and more fun links. Plus a special bonus post… Freaky Friday: The Bad Date Mini-Series continues.

Stay healthy!

Our first in-person workshop in 2+ years is happening September 24!
