The Stickler Weekly will take an indefinite break while I sort out some ongoing shoulder, back and neck issues that restrict my time working in front of a computer. These issues have been plaguing me on and off since my IT days in the 1990s, but have recently come to a head with episodes that come on me suddenly and stop me in my tracks. Various physios have tried their best to correct my bad posture that seems to be responsible for nerve damage, but nothing seems to have a lasting effect. I’ve been struggling on, but recent events have been a real cause for concern. Time to get serious.
In addition to medical remedies, I’m planning to set up a standing desk as a trial, the success of which may determine whether I ever write another crossword.
Thanks for your support in the past.
