I have tendonitis, it was just diagnosed on tuesday. I don't know how typical this is, but the pain gets set off when I hold anything with weight, even a cup of water can hurt a lot of I'm having a bad day. I went to buy milk from a store and got a gallon. I used a large shopping cart to do this to avoid having to hold the milk through the store. The cashier rang it up and placed it on the counter for me, and I asked her for a bag and apologized for the inconvenience. Because they were in her work station I couldn't get one myself. She smirked at me and rolled her eyes like I was some stupid piece of shit.
I have two long black wrist splints on, it's pretty fucking obvious that there's something wrong with me. I understand that most people can hold a gallon of milk perfectly well without a bag, but I can't, I have to carry the bag on my elbow (very uncomfortable) so not to put any weight on my wrists. I even apologized since I knew it sounded like a stupid request and I would sound entitled, but I can't fucking help it.
It's really frustrating not being able to preform simple tasks that any child can do, and I really don't appreciate that a woman would smirk and roll her eyes at me when I ask her to do a simple part of her job for me. It's not like I was asking for her to carry it to the car for me and feed me grapes by hand. I know I'm being too defensive, I'm just frustrated that I have a problem with simple tasks and this woman was making fun of me for it.
