I used to have nice, straight, slim fingers. Except for the kink at the end of the pinkie, but that's always been there. I took the splint off, and it's like somebody took my ring finger and replaced it with some malformed bit of plastic. Not mine. It's a fake.
And after 2 1/2 weeks wrapped tight against the non-breathable foam surface, me skin was itchy. Really itchy.
