When I needed an appointment, with the hand specialist, it wasn’t difficult to arrange although I was a new patient. Now in the last few weeks before the election, the same hand specialist is booked for weeks. If you ask why, I’ll explain. If you are like me who is totally ready to scream every time a political lie, oops commercial comes on the TV screen, I grab for the remote and mute the sound. Well that has played havoc on my finger. Others are suffering from the same ailment as I do and maybe their pain is worse since they watch more TV than I do. Who would have guessed that hand specialists are reaping a bonanza from the never ending political commercials?
