Welcome back to the forum! I believe there are wrist guards now just for carpel tunnel that you can by at the drug stores or medical supply stores. Well worth the effort I am told by my "hacker" type friends.
Do not worry over the loss of your friend, she was not there for you, sounds like the long distance was working on the relationship anyway. There is a reason people come in and out of our lives, we just don't know what it is most of the time.
I myself have just gained 20lbs from respidal and completed a med change that should give me more energy. So I will be walking more and gettng out of the house. I have to hook up with past friends that I have not seen or talked to in over a year.
Why don't you call someone you have not spoken to in a longtime? You would be suprised how glad they will be to hear from you. You never know who has "stuff" until you call.
Keep posting here we care!
