yeah, i get that pain too, i found thast using a fountain pen or ink roller helps because u dont need as much pressure to write but it still hurts when i write lots. im just wading through the process to get help at uni, i now get 25% extra time in exams and can use a compueter.. hooray!

i think im ok with this kind of thing, ill be a bit worried about it but u shouldnt let it stop you buying things you want. Either get someone else to carry it for you or take something to wrap it in to carry it.
