    If it's your wrists that hurt it probably isn't your fingers causing it.

    Typing Ergonomics: 7 Tips to Avoid Injuries While Working

    Ignore the ad for the ergonomic keyboard. I haven't found a lot of evidence that is necessary. However, if after making other corrections, changing keyboards is not an expensive intervention to try. Read the research before choosing an alternative keyboard.

    Here's a better link: Cornell University Ergonomics Web

    Wrist rests are also questionable but if someone is using one and it works for them, then that's fine.

    Most problems can be resolved by proper ergonomics.

    And what Lisa said is also important, especially getting up and moving around at regular intervals.

    I AM NOT WHAT YOU THINK!
    by Antwon Rose
    5/16/2016

    I am confused and afraid
    I wonder what path I will take
    I hear that thereís only two ways out
    I see mothers bury their sons
    I want my mom to never feel that pain
    I am confused and afraid

    I pretend all is fine
    I feel like Iím suffocating
    I touch nothing so I believe all is fine
    I worry that it isnít, though
    I cry no more
    I am confused and afraid

    I understand people believe Iím just a statistic
    I say to them Iím different
    I dream of life getting easier
    I try my best to make my dream true
    I hope that it does
    I am confused and afraid
