So if your wrists are on it, that means the pillow is in front of the LS, not on the LS, right?

Sure. I'll do that tonight. I'm sitting in a lawyer's lobby while they talk settlement for 2-1/2 hrs. I just lay it across my lap towards the front end of the LS so it will be tilted towards me a little. Or under my wrists so my wrists are raised up a little.

Thanks, Roxannee

That's sort of where I am too right now.  Do you have a picture you can post of where you put the bean bag thing when using your LS?  That would be very, very helpful for me.  I use a lumbar pillow with my Diamante but struggling how to make it work with the LS.

I'm late here, but I have wrist problems as well. I use a snake-like bean bag thing I got at Office Max for maybe $10. I use it under my LS in the front or under my wrists. I wouldn't t be working any longer if I didn't have a LS.

Sorry for the typos in last post - just woke up and apparently not all the way awake yet.

No, I have tendonitis is my left wrist only.  I've had it for about 13 years.  That's why I got the LS is because I was hoping that pain would go away.  I' finding it hurts worse with the LS, not better.

I do use a pillow to rest my forearms/wrists with the Diamante.  I'm going to have to find a way to incorporate that pillow into this setting.  It's awkward because it's so flat and the pillow raises your wrists/arms above the machine.  I'll have to mess with that.  It's frustrating because I'm very comfortable having the LS on my lap.  Just as the day goes on, I can feel the aching in my left wrist.

Thank you for including me in your support group, Laura.  It is a huge help, you have no idea.

The LS saved Debbie after she suffered a broken finger.  Yay, Lightspeed!

Do you have one of those ReportIt wrist pillow things you could try?  Some reporters swear by them.  I'm not sure why your wrist would hurt so much.  Is it just one wrist or both?  Did your wrist hurt with your other writer, or is this something new to the LS?

There are a few of us in Chicago using the LS.  It's nice to have a little support group :)

I already have the null stroke defined as SKWRAO/EURBGS, which is the lower keys of the keyboard.  I have been resting my fingers there and my palms on the flat part of the writer where there are no keys.  Not sure why my wrist is killing me.  I'm stumped.  I got a pillow desk from Pengad that I really like and I like it on my lap too - very comfortable with a lumbar pillow attached to the chair.  I feel great except as the day goes on, my wrist is killing me.  I'm going to have to play with maybe putting a pillow half way on the writer to rest my wrists or something.  I didn't even take it today because I needed a break.

I love that there are you two out there that love it and believe in the LS.  I so want it to work for me too.

Hi Laura

Well, I haven't really had a chance to write on it with this connection problem.  I did delete it once and re-add it and that's how I got it to work and thought, cool, fixed.  Then I had a job last week that ended up canceling at last minute and I was testing it before the job and could not get it to connect.  I'm going to try again this afternoon.  The little I did write on it though, I think I like the wider palm rest. :)

Kelli, Laura answered the SD question that I wrote a test session with it completely out not just taking it out and immediately putting back in - and not advised but just as a test.  I was going to suggest that you rest your palms and try as much as you can to write with just your fingers.  Are you writing with it on your lap or on a stand?  I could not write with it on a stand but when I put it on my lap, depending on the chair, I need something under my feet to get the right angle on my lap.  But if my chair can be adjusted low enough, then don't need anything.
