    Is anyone else getting a callous on their thumb where they press the trackball?

    I know I certainly am!

    Do you think I could get disability for this?

    I'm not getting anything. I mean I use the Pearl pretty much every minute of the day and I don't get anything from it.

    hhhhmmmm.....

    I am definitely developing a callous where I press the trackball. I'm thinking in a couple of days I should be able to stop bullets with it!

    Sorry I'm not getting anything yet maybe if I use my pearl for a few days non-stop, lol!!!

    I'd call a doctor about this one if it gets any worse.

    Hope your finger gets better, LOL!!

    no different than playing the guitar. you will develop nasty callouses in your finger tips. stevie ray vaughan used to cut them off and glue them back on before his performances.

    anyway, it might hurt for a few days but i dont think it is anything to worry about.

    as far as disability, i hope you are kidding.
