P.S.  Over the years, folks have frequently asked me how I continue to use computers, despite having Carpal Tunnel in both wrists (for example, to create this website, or to write my legislative updates).  For convenience, I'm providing links to two products I've found invaluable in minimizing keyboard and (especially) mouse use.  The first is the SmartNav Hands Free Mouse, which is a scanner that follows the movement of a reflective sticker that you place on a hat or your glasses.  The second is Dragon NaturallySpeaking, a voice recognition software package that enables you to dictate text, as well as issue commands to your computer.  I have used both for a number of years now, and they allow me to be much more productive than I would otherwise be.
