Have you seen this new product advertised on TV? Well, I’m a huge sucker for new inventions but I didn’t really think that I would have a need for one of these until recently.
I was making some gravy from the packets (because it’s cheaper) and it says in the instructions that you have to stir it constantly. Well, I have carpal tunnel syndrome so stirring isn’t a great thing for my hands.
Oddly enough my hands and wrists aren’t what is bothering me when I stir, now I have a new pain in my arms just below my elbows. It’s not just my stirring arm, it’s both arms.
I’m having trouble picking up every day things like the milk carton or the tea jug. I’ve even had trouble picking up a cup of coffee. So if I have pain picking things up, then just imagine how much pain I am in when I try to stir things.
So I decided yesterday that I would buy a RoboStir because it was only $9.99 at Albertson’s. I didn’t use it right away but I did turn it on and it looks hilarious bouncing around the empty pain.
I wanted to try it today so I made some oatmeal for lunch and had this thing stirring while it was cooking and it was hilarious to watch. I mean, it did a good job, it was just funny to see it in action.
If I had my eyes closed, I could swear that someone put a vibrator in my food. That’s how funny it sounded to me.
RoboStir did the job it was paid to do and I did not regret for one minute the money I spent on this new toy. It wasn’t a frivolous purchase because I had thought about buying it ever since my new arm pain started developing.
I totally recommend this for anyone who has any pain in their arms.
