Default Horror

I saw a neurologist today for my wrist paralyzation problem (which began two weeks ago), and got some bad news. A series of tests involving a needle in my muscles and an electronic pulse readout revealed I have "Radial Nerve Palsy" in my right hand/ wrist. Essentially the nerve which controls the up motion in my fingers and wrist is severed. It's somewhat rare, and the paralyzation symptoms may last for six to eight weeks. The most shocking and terrifying thing he told me was that my right hand may not ever function completely again. This is completely unnacceptable to me at this point, I'm an artist and a musician and I need my right hand like I need my eyes. I'm going to avoid bursting out in a fit of rage and despair for now. I'm praying it recovers completely. No, I'm counting on it.
