At this point I would describe myself as in a state of “very freaked out” My career was largely centered around designing through writing on a computer. My internal perceived value was tied to my ability to manipulate, produce, and delete code. Would I need to change careers? Could I use some dictation software to code? What am I going to do? What careers involve no computering? My head was filled with stressful questions.
I got RSI and what happened next wasn’t surprising at all

Thank you for writing about this. I faced something similar quite briefly last year when my wrists started hurting from being at a keyboard all day. It subsided soon enough, but these questions can be quite jarring, especially to someone who is just starting out on their career. I wish you well, and a lifetime of health. Cheers!
